Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solutions – a set of technologies, products, and techniques that are designed to stop sensitive information from leaving an organisation. These solutions execute responses based on policy and rules defined to address the risk of inadvertent or accidental leaks, or exposure of sensitive data outside of authorised channels. DLP software classifies regulated, confidential and business critical data and identifies violations of policies defined by organizations or within a predefined policy pack, typically driven by regulatory compliance such as PCI-DSS, or GDPR.
When organizations need DLP?
DLP enforces protective actions to prevent end-users from accidentally or maliciously sharing data that could put the organization at risk. DLP solutions monitor and control endpoint activities, filter data streams on corporate networks, and monitor data in the cloud to protect data at rest, in motion, and in use. DLP can also help organizations to meet compliance and auditing requirements by providing reports and identify areas of weakness and anomalies for forensics and incident response. Organizations use DLP to protect and secure their data and comply with regulations. DLP solutions can provide support to three problematic areas, which are common in many organizations: personal information protection and compliance, intellectual property (IP) protection, and data visibility.
