DLP - Protection against data loss

Today, many companies are increasingly focuses on the protection of confidential information, however, there is not enough clarity and common understanding of what constitutes a complete DLP-system.

DLP - "Data Loss Prevention" used for products and systems to protect against leaks.

In our view, the term DLP has not become obsolete, and solutions for preventing data leakage will exist for quite some time, be combined with other types of products to secure data and integrated into a global system of this kind.

DLP we define as a system to protect against leaks of all critical information, and sometimes, if the customer or partner is not entirely clear sense of the term, we resort to simpler interpretations such as "Control System mail traffic, removable media" and the like, that does not change the basic problem DLP, - first of all, is the protection of data leaks.

DLP-systems aimed at minimizing the risk of internal security threats, or, in other words, to protect corporate information from insiders. Insiders are absolutely everyone in the company, because of leakage can occur not only with malicious intent, but by mistake or ignorance of the rules of employees security.

Losing control of sensitive information can lead to fines, damage to brand and reputation, loss of competitive advantage, and expensive breach notification costs. Organizations are turning to data loss prevention (DLP) solutions to locate sensitive information in order to prevent it from leaving their environments or to ensure it is protected.

Moreover, according to statistics, over 80% of reported incidents has imennona accidental leakage. However, this DLP-system provides all the scenarios and how to protect against accidental leakage and intentional data theft by employees.

There are many approaches to the classification of DLP-systems, but more or less established notions of the market point to several features that allow IT solutions to refer to a class of DLP.
