In this final post of the series about Data Loss Prevention, we examine some important characteristics of DLP Software Packages.
The DLP Software Packages
These come in three main categories:
1. Network based solutions:
These are typically installed at the endpoints of a network perimeter and can identify/block any malicious incoming traffic that can affect the datasets.
2. Endpoint based solutions:
These are deployed on all employee workstations, servers, and wireless devices.
They monitor all sorts of electronic communications, and if any are deemed to be suspicious in nature it will block access to the datasets of the employees in question.
These solutions can also monitor and block any physical device that has any kind of sensitive information/data on them.
3. Advanced based solutions:
These make use of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Neural Network mathematical algorithms to determine any anomalies or the most granular suspicious behavior when the datasets are being accessed.
