Data Loss Prevention (DLP)

Overview

  • Quantify your exposure to data leakage with a tailored and accurate assessment
  • Identify key areas at risk of data loss; broken business processes and employee awareness opportunities
  • Produce an actionable list of recommendations to support an effective information security strategy

Background

Data loss, and the legal and competitive exposure threatened by a data breach event, is now the most prominent issue facing enterprise IT security executives. The threat is compounded as more technologies enter the enterprise, which makes it easy for sensitive data to become lost or leaked.

Progress Distribution’s risk assessment service is built using industry best practices and has been developed from real-world data loss prevention (DLP) implementations. It allows you rapidly assess the risk of data loss and to understand what to do next.
