The easy road to pervasive DLP

Sponsored Post The coronavirus pandemic appears to have changed the employment landscape forever, with estimates suggesting that up to a quarter of staff still spend some of their working week outside of the office compared to just 6 percent prior to 2020.

That continues to make life challenging for IT security teams tasked with protecting the sensitive data being accessed and processed by a diverse mix of different end users and devices from multiple locations.

To protect that data, you need to know where it is of course, have visibility over the endpoint and the application in question. Being able to monitor and control the data coming into your network, either through staff mail boxes, file downloads or website uploads is an important part of the defensive mechanism too. And those practical measures will be much more effective when supplemented by strategic policies around data security posture and automated management tools.

It’s those capabilities that the Forcepoint Data Security Everywhere platform is designed to provide by automating the enforcement of data loss protection (DLP) on both managed and unmanaged devices to save security staff having to manually implement policies across multiple domains. It applies new or existing DLP policies to endpoints, data and applications wherever they happen to be, whether that’s behind the corporate firewall, in the cloud or an end users’ remote laptop, PC, table or smartphone.

Forcepoint Data Security Everywhere uses an artificial intelligence (AI) engine to scan those locations for both structured and unstructured data. It categorizes what it finds in over 70 different fields and more than 50 different file types, identifies access permissions and automatically adapts policies to stop any risky or unwanted exfiltration of critical information that could fall the wrong side of privacy regulation and compliance requirements.

And with up to 1,700 pre-defined DLP classifiers, policies and templates supplied out of the box, there should be no need for organizations to expend precious IT skills and resources configuring their own – they can just choose to implement suitable frameworks which are already in the library.
