The Importance of Testing

by Aaron Russo | 05.22.15

Data Loss Prevention Security Assessment

Create a Strategy to Protect Your Critical Information

What Is Data Loss Prevention (DLP)?

Data loss prevention refers to combination of technology, policy, and process that helps your organization monitor and control critical information, and develop a complete data security strategy. The technology monitors, detects, and blocks sensitive data exfiltration while data is in-use (endpoint actions), in-motion (network traffic), and at-rest (data storage).
