Data Loss Prevention Parent topic

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 common channels, such as email and external devices
  • 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.
