Data Loss Prevention (DLP) safeguards an organization's confidential and sensitive data-referred to as digital assets-against accidental disclosure and intentional theft. DLP allows you to:
Identify the digital assets to protect
Create policies that limit or prevent the transmission of digital assets through email
Enforce compliance to established privacy standards
DLP evaluates data against a set of rules defined in policies. Policies determine the data that must be protected from unauthorized transmission and the action that DLP performs when it detects transmission.
