All necessary exclusions are already in place on several security-related components, like Antivirus, Containment, HIPS and Firewall. Moreover, additional whitelisting rules for commonly used applications are added on HIPS, Containment and Firewall sections on default profiles. Additional rules are disabled by default, where you can enable them if needed.
