Data loss prevention solves three main objectives that are common pain points for many organizations:
Personal Information Protection / Compliance Does your organization collect and store payment card information (PCI)? If so, you are more than likely subject to compliance regulations that require you to protect your customers’ sensitive data.
IP Protection Does your organization have important intellectual property and trade or state secrets that could put your organization’s financial health and brand image at risk if lost or stolen? DLP solutions like Digital Guardian that use context-based classification can classify intellectual property in both structured and unstructured forms. With policies and controls in place, you can protect against unwanted exfiltration of this data.
Data Visibility Is your organization seeking to gain additional visibility into data movement? A comprehensive enterprise DLP solution can help you see and track your data on endpoints, networks, and the cloud. This will provide you with visibility into how individual users within your organization interact with data.
