Data Protection & DLP

Data protection and data loss prevention (DLP) are important concepts for any organisation that handles sensitive information. Data protection refers to the measures taken to safeguard data from unauthorised access, use, modification, or disclosure. Data Loss Prevention focuses on preventing data leakage or theft, especially through email, web, or cloud applications.

Data: your business’s lifeblood

Data Protection involves implementing measures that safeguard sensitive information from various threats, including hackers, malware, insider threats, and human error. DLP, on the other hand, focuses on preventing data leakage or exfiltration through intentional or accidental means, such as email, cloud storage, USB drives, or social media.

Protecting data with MAM

Mobile App Management (MAM) is a solution that allows organizations to secure and control the access to corporate data on mobile devices. MAM enables IT administrators to apply policies and settings to specific apps, such as requiring encryption, authentication, or data wiping. MAM also allows users to separate their personal and work data on the same device, ensuring privacy and compliance.

MAM is an essential component of a comprehensive mobile security strategy that can help organizations protect their data in the era of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and remote work. By using MAM, organizations can empower their employees to work productively and securely on any device, anywhere.

Privileged Access management (PAM)

Privileged access management (PAM) is a security measure that allows organisations to control and monitor the activity of privileged users, such as administrators, who have access to key business systems and data. PAM helps prevent unauthorized or malicious access to critical resources by applying policies and technologies that limit the scope and duration of privileged access.

PAM mitigates credential theft, for example, by ensuring least privilege, just-in-time and just-enough access for privileged users, meaning that they only get the access they need, when they need it, and for as long as they need it. PAM also enforces multifactor authentication for all privileged accounts, adding an extra layer of security beyond passwords.


Insider Risk Management

Insider Risk Management is a proactive approach to safeguarding your organisation's data from unauthorised or malicious actions by insiders. Insiders are people who have legitimate access to your data, such as employees, contractors, partners, or vendors. They may pose a risk to your data security either intentionally or unintentionally, for example by leaking sensitive information, stealing intellectual property, or compromising systems.


Policies / Conditional access

Policies and conditional access are two powerful tools that can be used to protect data in organisations. Here are some ways that policies and conditional access can be used to protect data:

Sensitive information types

Common types of sensitive data, include credit card numbers, social security numbers, or health records. You can use sensitive information types to detect and protect your data in various scenarios and define policies.

Retention labels

These specify how long data should be kept or when it should be deleted.

Information protection labels

These how data should be protected or handled. You can use information protection labels to enforce encryption, access control, visual marking, or DLP policies.

Sensitivity labels

These specify your data’s business value or risk level.
