Data Loss Prevention Policies Parent topic

OfficeScan evaluates a file or data against a set of rules defined in DLP policies. Policies determine files or data that must be protected from unauthorized transmission and the action that OfficeScan performs when it detects transmission.
Data transmissions between the OfficeScan server and its clients are not monitored.
You can configure policies for internal and external clients. OfficeScan administrators typically configure a stricter policy for external clients.
You can enforce specific policies to client groups or individual clients. You can also enforce a single policy to all clients.
After you deploy the policies, clients use the location criteria you have set in the Computer Location screen (see Computer Location) to determine their location and the policy to apply. Clients switch policies each time the location changes.
