Why Choose Teramind DLP
Data Loss Prevention (DLP) is a strategy for ensuring your employees and vendors do not accidentally or intentionally share sensitive and company confidential data outside your organization. A data loss prevention solution utilizes content discovery, digital inspection techniques and contextual analysis to identify and categorize sensitive data and IP. Next, policies and rules are created for data usage scenarios. The DLP software then monitors user actions. The user actions are then validated against the data loss prevention rules. If the rule condition is triggered, appropriate action is taken. Actions could include stopping the action, blocking the user, alerting an administrator, requesting management override and more.
