  • exists: Apply the rule if the value in the Pattern field exists in the Target selected.
  • does not exist: Apply the rule if the value in the Pattern field does not exist in the Target selected.
  • matches regular expression: Apply the rule if the Target matches the regular expression value specified in the Pattern field.
  • does not match the regular expression: Apply the rule if the Target does not match the regular expression value specified in the Pattern field.
  • exists in address groupApply the rule if the Target exists in the address group.

Note that if the "exists in address group" option is selected, the Pattern field will appear for you to specify the Address Group.

If "Attachment" is selected in the Target field, the following options will appear in Predicate.

Untitled.png

  • with filenameApply the rule if the value set in the Pattern field is found in the filename of the attachment.
  • with Content-Type: Apply the rule if the value set in the Pattern field is found in the content-type of the attachment.
  • are all password-protected data: Apply the rule if all attachments are password-protected data.
  • contains password-protected data: Apply the rule if one or more attachments are password-protected data.

5) Pattern: Enter the email address, domain address, keyword, or regular expression you wish to apply as a rule condition.

The following separators and regular expressions can be used in this field:

  • (|) Vertical bar separator: this acts as a logical OR. (Example: "aaa@example.com|bbb@example.com" will specify both "aaa@example.com" and "bbb@example.com")
  • Regular expression: can be used to substitute for any other character or specific characters in the string.

                *   The preceding item will be matched zero or more times.
               ?   The preceding item is optional and matched at most once.
              [...]   A bracket expression: It matches any single character in the list.
         [...,...,...]   A set expression: It matches any set of characters in the list.

*Notes
- It may take a longer time for HENNGE Email DLP system to inspect an email if you use a regular expression that matches with most characters and numbers such as ".*"
- If the Predicate is selected as "matches regular expression" or "does not match regular expression", it allows a query to search emails using the regular expression as defined in rex.

6) CountSpecify the frequency of the value you have input in the Pattern field. For instance, if the keyword "Confidential" is set in the Target field and the Count is set as "3", the email that contains the word "Confidential" more than 3 times will be applied to this rule.

*Note - You can set the "Count" when the "Target" is NOT "Attachment" and the "Predicate" is one of the following: "exists", "matches regular expression" or "does not match regular expression".
