Data Loss Prevention

Whereas Cyber threats and the associated media hype address the risk to the organisation from the outside, one of the often forgotten risks are those from within. The disgruntled member of staff, the temp, the contractor, or the accidental disclosure from a well-meaning user.

Some of the most costly data breaches have arisen due to direct insider knowledge and staff abusing privileges. It’s not uncommon for the value of an organisations data to be higher than any physical asset. As perimeters dissolve with inter-connected systems, supply chain data sharing and third party access, there is a need to do more to keep data confidential.

How would you know if an employee leaked confidential information?

CST offers a data and people centric solution to critical information protection. Unlike other solutions, it’s non-disruptive and supports continuous collaboration, avoids business interruption and mitigates the risk of financial or reputational damage caused by the unauthorised disclosure of sensitive data wherever it lives – at the endpoint, on premise, or in the cloud.

We have selected two solutions to address DLP. The solutions appeal to different customers based on their complexity versus function preferences. Clearswift offers a simple to implement solution with some clever mitigation functions, and Symantec a more complex but more powerful solution.

DLP – what’s right for you?

We can contrast the two DLP solutions with your specific requirements and help you to understand how each option may be applicable to preventing data leaks and detecting information breaches, please contact us to arrange an informal review.
