It's easy to see all of the sensitive files within a folder from the Sensitive Content tab in Egnyte Secure & Govern. To view the file name, policies matched, and the risk level for each of the files found, select the folder location and click Show detected content from the details pane. 


You can also double-click on its row in the sensitive locations list.


From this dialog, you can either open the folder in a new browser tab (for Connect and SharePoint Online sources) by clicking Open folder or click Export to see the list of files as a CSV. An example of the CSV file is shown below.


For each file in the list, you can take any of the following actions from the drop-down at the right end of its row:

  • Open the sensitive file in a new browser tab (for Connect and SharePoint sources).
  • Reporting a false positive: If the file is not truly sensitive, you can provide this feedback to Egnyte Protect by reporting it as an incorrect match.
  • Dive deeper into each file using the Sensitive File Viewer to view the actual sensitive content matches by either clicking on the file’s row or from the drop-down.


Flagging and Managing Sensitive Content Matches

To manage individual sensitive content matches, you have the option to flag them as an incorrect match or mark them as a correct match but not sensitive. To flag a match, click the flag icon on the specific match


You will then be presented with 2 options of how you want to treat the match

Incorrect detection - You feel that this detection should not have matched the sensitive content pattern indicated. Similar to the “report incorrect match” option at the file level, but only for the specific match

Correct detection but not sensitive - The sensitive content match is correct, but you do not wish to treat this match as sensitive


After selecting how to flag the match, you can choose whether to flag all instances of that match or just the specified match in the location you have currently selected. After selecting the appropriate option, click Select


After flagging a match, you can manage and view the details of flagged matches in the Secure & Govern Settings page. Navigate to the settings and select the Flagged Matches subcategory under Content Classification


From there, you will be able to view all of the matches you have flagged. You can view the details of each match and also re-identify them as sensitive by selecting the Mark as sensitive option. Once that is selected, the matches will be removed from the list and be identified in the sensitive content view as they were originally.
