Data Loss Prevention

Data Loss Prevention (DLP) is the process of protecting and controlling your confidential data by avoiding data breaches, exfiltration, and unwanted destruction of sensitive data. DLP solutions protect your data while it is in use, in motion and at rest, making sure there would not be unauthorised access or leaking of data.

How Does DLP Help?

Data in Use

Encompasses applications that are actively processing sensitive information such as a spreadsheet or word processor document

Data in Motion

Covers network traffic between devices

Data at Rest

Means the files are stored on desktops, laptops and servers within an organisation’s infrastructure

Why Is Data Loss Prevention Important for Organisations?

Data Loss Prevention (DLP) aims to secure your data, protect intellectual property, and comply with regulations. DLP can help you:

  • Ensure compliance by identifying sensitive and regulated content in emails, instant messages, social media posts and more.
  • Protect your organisation’s confidential information from falling into the wrong hands.
  • Protect your brand by limiting exposure to potential breaches that can result in fines or penalties from government agencies such as HIPAA and PCI-DSS.

Three Types of Data Loss Prevention

Network DLP

Network traffic analysis is the most effective way to protect your data from potential intruders and cyberattacks.

Endpoint DLP

This protection works by identifying, controlling, and restricting sensitive data on PCs, laptops, mobile devices, virtual machines (VMs), remote desktops (RDVs) or other end-user systems.

Cloud DLP

Use this option to identify and monitor threats associated with cloud applications such as Dropbox or Google Drive.

China’s Data Security Administrative Measures

As the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) rolls out, China DLP has joined countries worldwide to push for stricter data protection legislation. The Data Security Administrative Measures will be China’s first comprehensive law on sensitive data protection.
