Organizations need to protect sensitive information such as financial data, proprietary data, and personal information from inappropriate sharing.
Data loss prevention (DLP) refers to the practice of protecting sensitive data from unauthorised access, leakage, or destruction and to reduce risk.
DLP works by identifying, monitoring, and protecting sensitive data across various locations and devices, such as on-premises systems, cloud services, email servers, mobile devices, and web applications. DLP uses a combination of technologies and techniques to detect and prevent data leakage. These include:
DLP can help prevent cyberattacks (phishing, malware, ransomware, or denial-of-service attacks), insider risk (theft, sabotage) and human error (misconfiguration, unintentional deletion, device loss).
Endpoint DLP involves implementing security measures at the device or endpoint level to prevent data loss, theft, or unauthorised access, especially in environments where employees use multiple devices and work remotely. How can you achieve Endpoint DLP:
DLP technologies can help your organisation prevent accidental or intentional data leaks by monitoring and controlling the flow of information.
DLP solutions can include software, hardware, and policies that detect and prevent data leakage in various ways, such as content filtering, endpoint protection, and network monitoring.
DLP policies can define rules and exceptions that govern how sensitive data is handled, stored, and shared within an organization.
