Data loss prevention – Part 3
In this final piece about Data Loss Prevention, we examine some important characteristics of DLP Software Packages, and some of the leading ones that you should consider acquiring for your business or corporation.
DLP software packages come in three main categories:
- Network based solutions
These are typically installed at the endpoints of a network perimeter and can identify/block any malicious incoming traffic that can affect the datasets.
- Endpoint based solutions
These are deployed on all employee workstations, servers and wireless devices. They monitor all sorts of electronic communications, and if any are deemed to be suspicious in nature it will block access to the datasets of the employees in question. These solutions can also monitor and block any physical device that has any kind of sensitive information/data on it.
- Advanced based solutions
These make use of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Neural Network mathematical algorithms to determine any anomalies or the most granular suspicious behavior when the datasets are being accessed.
The following are the top ranked DLP software packages you can try for your company:
Symantec Data Loss Prevention
Trustwave Data Loss Prevention
