PointSec Protector


My company uses Pointsec Protector. I have a group of users who have USB sticks with McAfee encryption.
 If they plug the USB stick in thePointSec Protector does not allow them to run the MfeEERM.EXE that is on the USB stick (that provides the encryption log-in window).

My question is, isthere a way that you can make an exception to the policy that will allow this one .exe file to be run by the user ?

..If yes, i would appreciate any info on how before I go to the administrators.!

I'm not sure, that could be a risk... if pointsec makes an exception, does it do it on the filename alone, or does it hash the file? If it's filename alone, bad security there... just rename any file to that exe... if it's a hash that's a bit harder, but not totally secure either.

Ahh... nm this question might need to be deleted...
