File types .ova virtual machine image

Is there a file type .ova defenition within ZScaler?
Looks like currently it falls under “unidentified” and allowed for the downloads.
Is there a current ER for this file type?

Hi Alex,

Zscaler considers unscanable files larger than 400 MB.

If you have Policy > Malware Protection > Security Exceptions > Unscannable File = Allow this file will pass.

Even when an OVA file is a tar (compressed file) probably is matching unscannable File.

The best way to block large files is to put BLOCK on Unscannable Files.

Best regards
