White list IP address in Intrusion Prevention

From the central console, I would like to be able to white list one or more IP addresses in the Intrusion Prevention engine. Once you specify an IP address in the white list, F-Secure client will not check traffic coming from it and, thus, no alerts to users will be raised in case this IP address, for instance, runs a nmap scan on a target PC with F-Secure client installed.

 

I request this feature because we're testing a vulnerability assessment tool on our network that scans all PCs periodically. The problem is that it generates lots of intrusion alerts on target systems.

 

I think that it is a very easy feature to implement and it is very important to have it in a business environment. 

 

Without this feature, probably we're going to migrate to a new antivirus solution able to white list an IP address.
