Use of more cloud based services from Dropbox to web-based e-mail has in the last years, increased the number of accidental or intentional data leakage incidents. Endpoint Data Leakage Prevention (also called Data Loss Prevention or short DLP) has become one of the principal security challenges for companies all over the world. Careless employee behavior is actually being considered a greater security threat than hackers, highlighting the need for a close and detailed monitoring of all data transferred outside of companies networks.
To protect your sensitive company data you need to be aware of its content. If data leaves the endpoint (Windows PCs and Macs) to the cloud, USB Stick or in an e-mail, you need to be sure that its content is not against your policy. This is where Content-Aware Data Loss Prevention (DLP) helps you.
One simple example is telephony; you want your company to be as efficient, productive and cost-conscious as possible. You allow users or even encourage them to use Skype. Great to keep call costs low and people connected to work efficient. Downside, who knows what files they transfer outside the company network using Skype’s file transfer features? With Content Aware Protection you can take control at the endpoint what data content is allowed to be transferred using Skype.
