Antivirus / EDR / IPS: Whitelist requirements to avoid collision performance issues

Issue:
Performance issues as a result of Security Software blocking Actifile’s file access.

Resolution:
Add Actifile to the AV/EDR whitelist as follows:

Step 1
Exclude the following processes:
AFAgentService.exe
AFUpdaterService.exe
AFAgentServiceManager.exe


Step 2
Exclude the folder + sub folders from scanning:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Actifile Agent

Step 3 (optional – mainly for Intrusion Prevention Systems – IPS):
URLs for whitelisting (all HTTPS port 443):
https://app.actifile.com
https://actifileapp1.azurewebsites.net
