What is DLP and how can I get value from it?

Data loss prevention (DLP) is a set of tools and processes used to ensure that sensitive data is not lost, misused, or accessed by unauthorized users.  DLP has 3 main uses:

Personal Information Protection – protecting personally identifiable data (PII), health information, or payment information is subject to compliance regulations, such as HIPAA, GDPR, etc. In addition to providing your organization with trust, this type of DLP protects against regulatory fines and criminal liability.

Intellectual property protection – preventing the misuse or theft of intellectual property can save millions of dollars and protect your organization from long-term repercussions.

Data visibility – see how your data moves around the organization, who accesses what data, and what each user does with the data.

How does DLP improve my security?

Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solutions protect your organization from accidental or intentional sharing of sensitive data through a set of steps and protocols. Once a solution is set up, there are inspection techniques and contextual analysis that help the system understand data use. Then, policies and rules are created for scenarios and data sharing capabilities. Once the software monitors user behavior, it is compared to data loss prevention rules and when something is triggered, appropriate playbooks may fire (depending on the configurations).

This holistic approach creates an end-to-end process for managing sensitive information among small organizations and large enterprises alike.


  • Users accidentally email sensitive information to their personal email
  • Malicious actors search through many folders looking for information they are not privy to
  • An abnormal number of users searches for similar documents
  • IP documents are absolutely top-secret, but the threat of sharing these documents remains high
  • The right DLP tool blocks that activity and fire an alert.
  • The system will mark this as an anomaly and trigger an alert to the responsible IT team for further investigation
  • The system will flag this activity to understand if it’s an external threat
  • Tagging ultrasensitive documents with special restrictions, passwords, and monitoring allows for tight regulation and optimal protection against accidental, or international, sharing
