It may be possible to work around or resolve this issue either by updating the application for which the Tamper Protection alerts are being generated, or by updating the SEP client version on the affected machines. A future version of the product may make the Tamper Protection alert optional, offering a different alternative to exclusions for avoiding overly frequent alerts.
This is fixed in 12.1 RU1-MP1.
