Data Loss Prevention (DLP)

Data Loss Prevention (DLP) is a set of technologies and business policies to make sure end-users do not send sensitive or confidential data outside the organization without proper authorization. DLP enforces remediation with alerts, encryption, and other protective actions to prevent end users from accidentally or maliciously sharing data that could put the organization at risk. Sensitive information might include financial records, customer data, credit card data, or other protected information. The most common method that this data is leaked is via email.
