Data Loss Prevention (DLP) is an important layer in any good IT security program. It provides insight into how employees are accessing, using and moving sensitive data.
DLP systems are used in preventing data breaches, exfiltration, or unwanted destruction of sensitive data. DLP technologies perform content inspection and context analysis. They provide blocking and alerting when users attempt to move data marked sensitive to outside the data’s pre-defined zones, by using copy/paste, messaging, E-mail or upload to cloud storage.
DLP execute responses based on policies and rules defined to address the risk of inadvertent or accidental leaks or exposure of sensitive data.
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.
