Data Leakage Prevention
Data Leakage Prevention (DLP) systems enables your organization to have strict control of information and data in how it is used, transferred and removed. DLP systems are able to identify, monitor and protect data in use through endpoint actions. DLP systems are also able to protect your intellectual data when data is in motion or in transit referred to as network actions or data that is at rest known as data storage.
DLP systems have granular level of data visibility and through deep content inspection, contextual security analysis of transaction (attributes of originator, data object, medium, timing, recipient/destination and so on) and with a centralized management framework can provide a complete holistic approach to your data security.
DLP technology has received significant attention industry wide due to corporate confidential information being leaked out through network access, endpoints or peripherals such as flash memory. Although you may increase productivity and empower your employees to be connected to your corporate resources remotely there are significant risks associated with how data that is downloaded is not confidential, once downloaded the data lifecycle and whether it is distributed elsewhere is now beyond the control of your organization. Information asset risks also need to be controlled for organizations that permit the use of instant messaging services and controlling the type of data that is shared across users. The use of DLP systems within your organization is paramount to ensure information assets are protected from unauthorized use and transmission.
DTS can assist your organization to identify the right DLP solution to meet your business requirements; solutions that are network, storage or endpoint based all have different characteristics and is important to make the selection.
