Keep Your Data Safe from Malicious and Dirty Apps. Add Threat-Aware Data Protection

Combat data theft with unparalleled threat awareness – now integrated with the broadest DLP

Our industry-leading data loss prevention is now integrated with the most complete endpoint protection and informed by the world’s largest civilian threat intelligence network so you can:

  • Surveil behaviors within suspicious user-installed apps and stop data theft
  • Identify and stop dirty apps from furtively exfiltrating sensitive data such as trade secrets and customer records
  • Restrict non-compliant data transfers and verifiably protecting personal data

Keep Data Secure and Private for GDPR

Implement DLP at the core of your Data Protection plan

Data privacy regulations, such as GDPR require you to ensure sensitive data is properly managed. Symantec DLP is configured to identify sensitive data (including that defined by GDPR) and uses a variety of advanced data detection techniques to identify data in many forms.

  • Confidently identify regulated data, track its use, and location
  • Protection policies allow you to regulate the flow of sensitive data
  • Integrate with encryption and CASB technologies to protect email, removable media, individual files and data in the cloud

Protect Data Outside Your Managed Perimeter

Secure data by wrapping automatic protection around it

When data leaves your organization and is shared widely, all is not lost. Symantec DLP will identify sensitive data and enable advanced protection, allowing you to:

  • Control who can use data, even from unmanaged locations or devices
  • Define what level of access a user has using persistent encryption and digital rights
  • Monitor user access to sensitive data to identify risky behavior or security compromise
  • Revoke access to users, effectively digitally shredding a document

The Broadest Protection With a Single Solution

Single console and unified policy management for every channel – cloud, endpoints, storage, email and web

Business communication happens over an exhausting number of apps, devices and platforms. As companies look for ways to increase productivity and collaboration, they also increase the number of channels over which employees can leak or steal corporate data.

Symantec DLP can discover, monitor and protect sensitive data wherever it’s used – in the office, on the road, or in the cloud. It gives you complete visibility and control across the broadest range of data loss channels: cloud apps, endpoints, data repositories, emails and web communications.

  • Easily manage data loss policies and incidents across every channel – all from one powerful management console
  • Offers flexible deployment options for any type of environment: on-premises, private cloud, hybrid cloud or public cloud

Comprehensive Technology, Fewer False Positives

From data fingerprinting to machine learning, Symantec DLP accurately finds sensitive data in whatever guise it takes

Symantec DLP utilizes a combination of advanced technologies to accurately detect confidential data —whether it’s at rest or in motion – and includes a variety of out-of-the-box policies (HIPAA, GDPR, PCI DSS, etc.) to help enable compliance with lower effort.

  • Vector Machine Learning (VML) learns and identifies intellectual property and other unstructured data that may difficult to describe such as financial documents, source code, etc.
  • Sensitive Image Recognition (SIR) detects sensitive data embedded in forms and other images (scanned documents, screenshots and pictures) with built-in Optical Character Recognition (OCR)
  • Exact Data Matching (EDM) identifies sensitive data by fingerprinting structured databases, e.g., “any customer name and their bank account number”
  • Indexed Document Matching (IDM) applies fingerprinting to documents to detect sensitive content that may be partially reused elsewhere, e.g., in an email message
  • Described Content Matching (DCM) looks for matches on regular expressions or patterns such as Social Security Number and credit card
  • Data Classification enables users to classify sensitive files and allows to protect them based on sensitivity by leveraging Symantec Information Centric Tagging (ICT)
