Data Loss Prevention

Business communication happens over an exhausting number of apps, devices and platforms. As companies look for ways to increase productivity and collaboration, they also increase the number of channels over which their data can be lost. Our data loss prevention solution based on Symantech DLP is designed to address such concerns.

Symantec DLP can discover, monitor and protect sensitive data wherever it's used – in the office, on the road, or in the cloud. It gives you complete visibility and control across the broadest range of data loss channels: cloud apps, endpoints, data repositories, emails and web communications. Easily manage data loss policies and incidents across every channel – all from one powerful management console. It offers flexible deployment options for any type of environment: on-premises, private cloud, hybrid cloud or public cloud

DLP solutions typically identify critical and confidential data, and track it as it circulates through an enterprise. This could include information such as intellectual property like source codes, product designs, client and price lists. Or, it might be financial documents, medical records, or research papers. It could involve data such as credit card numbers, or tax statements. After that, a DLP solution must identify where that data resides.

Adoption of DLP is being driven by insider threats and by more rigorous state privacy laws, many of which have stringent data protection or access components. The 2017 Cost of Data Breach Study from the Ponemon Institute, sponsored by IBM, puts the global average cost at $3.6 million, or $141 per data record.
