Data Loss Prevention (DLP)


Prevent threat actors. Control organisational information distribution

A Data Loss Prevention (DLP) system continually scans the corporate environment (endpoints, network file shares, databases, and other data repositories) for sensitive and confidentiality classifications to give complete visibility and control over organisationally owned data, regardless of where it is stored. DLP gives you total visibility and control over your information.

A DLP system is designed, not only, to prevent threat actors from exfiltrating sensitive data from the corporate sphere, but also controls the distribution of an organisations information.

How does Data Loss Prevention (DLP) work?

DLP stops sensitive data from being leaked or stolen by enforcing a single-set of policies and workflows which can be managed through a unified web-based console. DLP also prevents accidental exposure by inexperienced cloud users and configuration errors across the business cloud infrastructure.

For organisations who regulatory commitments the platform helps to assess and manage compliance risks with powerful data discovery, monitoring, and protection for a variety of regulations, including GDPR, PCI, HIPAA, and SOX.

The platform does this by scanning endpoints, network file shares, databases, and other data repositories for sensitive information to give you complete visibility and control over your information.

DLP leverages content-aware detection technologies which make it possible to reduce both false positives and false negatives, minimise the impact of your DLP efforts on end-users and find confidential information stored virtually in any location and in any file format.

How can BOM IT Solutions help?

Many organisations only review their cyber security capabilities when a breach has already occurred. Importantly, the cost of a breach can often run into the hundreds of thousands-far outweighing the cost of proactively assessing your level of cyber security.
