Tombstone Configuration (Reverse Proxy)

The Tombstone Configuration (Reverse Proxy) tab allows you to create and upload a custom tombstone file, also called a blocked message file, for specific user actions instead of the default McAfee tombstone file, see Default McAfee Tombstone File. . The reverse proxy replaces the files when it identifies sensitive information and displays them to users when they access restricted data. 

You will need to create a collection of custom tombstone files, save it as a ZIP file, and upload it. 

Create Tombstone Files

Tombstone files are used in user access, download, and upload actions. The user actions apply to different MVISION Cloud policies. 

  • Access. Access tombstone files are used with Cloud Access Policies (CAP). 
  • Download. Download tombstone files are used with CAP and DLP policies. 
  • Upload. Upload tombstone files are used with DLP policies. 

Create the following tombstone files:

  1. Create your custom tombstone files in all of the following file formats:
    • DOC
    • DOCX
    • PDF
    • PPT
    • PPTX
    • XLS
    • XLSX
    • ZIP
    • TXT
  2. Compress all of these files into one ZIP file. The maximum file size allowed is 10 MB. 

Upload the Tombstone File

If you do not configure a custom tombstone file, MVISION Cloud uses the default McAfee tombstone file. 

  1. Go to Policy > Policy Settings.
  2. Select the tab Tombstone Configuration (Reverse Proxy).
  3. Click Browse to upload the ZIP file with the compressed tombstone files for each required user action. An error message is shown if any file format is invalid. 
  4. Click Save

Default McAfee Tombstone File

If you do not configure a custom tombstone file, MVISION Cloud will use the default McAfee tombstone (blocked file) message, as shown.
