Data Loss Prevention Use Case

Achieve data loss prevention with data loss detection

Get the visibility you need to protect your data and align to compliance requirements

Traditional data loss prevention (DLP) technology is often mistaken for a data loss prevention strategy; DLP technology is used by enterprises as a tool to protect company data and prevent it from getting lost or stolen. On the other hand, DLP strategy focuses on a broader approach and frameworks that include policies and procedures, network controls and more technical pieces like tools and technology.

the challenge

DLP strategy gaps can lead to increased data protection and privacy risks

Companies use a combination of DLP strategy and DLP technology to mitigate data loss. Larger enterprises with a high level of security maturity are able to institute layers of policies and procedures, controls, technology, and dedicated in-house expertise to run it all. Smaller businesses lack the same level of security maturity and budget that their larger peers have, and often turn to large cloud service providers who offer some level of DLP controls as part of all-in-one licensing agreements. Yet without a DLP strategy, knowing how to implement those controls can be confusing, so teams won’t use the controls at all – or worse, assume that their service providers are operating them on their behalf.

Risks of Data Loss Prevention Strategy and Technology Gaps:

Breach liability

Data loss

Incomplete data inventory

Increased cyber risk

Increased operational risks

Poorly protected data

Regulatory non-compliance

Reputational damage

the solution

Get Better Visibility Into Your Data

A data loss prevention strategy starts with knowing what data exists on every endpoint across the network. With full visibility, businesses can establish a comprehensive data inventory, and better identify the tools they need to encrypt and protect sensitive company data, all by data type. From an auditing perspective, an up-to-date data map helps businesses demonstrate alignment to data security, privacy policies and data protection controls.
