Configure DLP for Policies

You can enable DLP sensors for the WatchGuard SMTP, FTP, HTTP, and HTTPS proxy policies.

Before you can enable Data Loss Prevention for an HTTPS proxy policy, you must enable deep inspection of HTTPS content in the HTTPS proxy action. This is required for DLP to examine content over an HTTPS connection. For more information, see HTTPS-Proxy: Content Inspection.
