Data Security is the core part of any organization nowadays as data loss or data leakage cannot be tolerated by any organization. There is a Data loss/leak prevention solution which is a system that is designed to detect potential data breach / data ex-filtration transmissions and prevent them by monitoring, detecting and blocking sensitive data which in-use (endpoint actions), in-motion (network traffic) and at-rest (data storage). In data leakage incidents, sensitive data is disclosed to unauthorized personnel either by malicious intent or inadvertent mistake. Such sensitive data can come in the form of private or company information, intellectual property (IP), financial or patient information, credit-card data, and other information depending on the business and the industry.
Advanced Security Measures employ machine learning and temporal reasoning algorithms for detecting abnormal access to data (i.e., databases or information retrieval systems) or abnormal email exchange, honeypots for detecting authorized personnel with malicious intentions, and activity-based verification (e.g., recognition of keystrokes dynamics) for detecting abnormal access to data.
Designated DLP Solutions detect and prevent unauthorized attempts to copy or send sensitive data, intentionally or unintentionally, without authorization, mainly by personnel who are authorized to access the sensitive information. In order to classify certain information as sensitive, these solutions use mechanisms, such as exact data matching, structured or unstructured data fingerprinting, statistical methods, rule and regular expression matching, published lexicons, conceptual definitions, and keywords.
Data Loss Prevention software Solution is a comprehensive, content-aware solution that discovers, monitors, and protects confidential data wherever it is stored or used – across network, storage and endpoint systems.
