I have Hard Drive Monitoring turned on for Endpoint Prevent. When someone edits a Word Document with sensitive data, I get multiple incidents for the same file.
Endpoint checks the files to determine the filetype, not relying on the file name. Microsoft Office products create temporary files while a file is being edited. This tempory file is saved on regular intervals. If this file is being saved into a directory that is being monitored, we will monitor the temporary files.
This is expected behavior.
