Adding Objects to the User-Defined Suspicious Object List

You can protect your network from objects not yet identified on your network by adding the suspicious objects to the User-Defined Suspicious Object list. Apex Central provides you the options to add objects based on the file, file SHA-1, domain, IP address, or URL. You can also specify the scan action that supported Trend Micro products perform after detecting the suspicious objects.

    The Custom Intelligence screen appears.
