Data Loss Prevention (DLP) is an important layer in any good IT security program. It provides insight into how employees are accessing and moving data.
DLP systems are used in preventing data breaches, exfiltration, or unwanted destruction of sensitive data. DLP technologies perform content inspection and context analysis of data sent via messaging applications, E-mail, in motion over the network or in use on a managed endpoint device, and at rest in on-premises file servers or in cloud applications and cloud storage. These solutions execute responses based on policy and rules defined to address the risk of inadvertent or accidental leaks or exposure of sensitive data outside authorized channels.
Organizations use DLP to protect and secure their data and to comply with regulations. Falcon IT Services provides consulting, installation, management and support of DLP software.
