By offering the Data Leakage Protection solution DPA helps its customers to monitor, document, and prevent sensitive information from leaving the organization without authorization.
The characterization of "sensitive data" differs with every company but typically it includes personal and business information, credit-card, social-security, or bank account numbers as well as intellectual property and competitive information in most cases.
After identifying such data, Data-leak protection scans the "data in motion" - information that leaves the organization being copied to any removable data store or via e-mails as well as scanning the "data at rest" – the information found in data stores throughout the corporate network. This inevitably helps companies not only to identify the sensitive information that leaves the company but also to achieve an understanding of all the sensitive data they owe.
Once identified by these tools, the data then can be handled in many ways. Administrators can be warned that the important sensitive data is leaving the organization, or the action can either be blocked or quarantined. Meanwhile, the users (i.e. employees) are also informed that their actions with the data contradict the corporate policy yet giving them an option to enter the reason for their actions. In other words, Data Leakage Protection solution guides users through sensitive-data policies in order to help the company limiting the unintentional sharing of protected information.
