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 Enterprise tombstone file, see Default McAfee Enterprise Tombstone File. . The reverse proxy replaces the files when it identifies sensitive information and displays them to users when they access restricted data.

You can use McAfee Enterprise  tombstone files to create your own Custom Tombstone files refer step below

  • Download. Download tombstone files are shown to the user with CAP and DLP policies when download to the file is restricted.
  • Upload. Upload tombstone files are shown to the user with DLP policies when upload to the file is restricted.
