Configuring supported filetypes to be scanned/blocked
Web Traffic Scanning works on the data objects which are being
downloaded. When content is downloaded, GFI WebMonitor will both
extract the advertised Content Type (when applicable/available) as
well as determine the real filetype of the downloaded object. Using this
information, GFI WebMonitor will check the Web Traffic Scanning
processing engine configuration to see how to process the object.
GFI WebMonitor ships with the capability to detect a number of
filetypes. For every filetype, you can configure what type of action GFI
WebMonitor is to take when processing a downloaded object which
matches the indicated filetype.
