Five Reasons to Modernize Your Data Loss Prevention Program
- February 21, 2023
There are two realities shaping how IT and security teams think about data protection today: Corporate data is increasingly being housed in the cloud versus on-premise and the modern workforce is becoming more mobile. As such, the need for protecting sensitive data in the cloud from any location has grown exponentially.
In addition to the complexities of cloud-based work and a distributed workforce, organizations must also consider the risks of insider threat and data loss, both of which continue to grow year after year.
Consider some of these sobering statistics:
Many organizations are exploring a Zero Trust architecture to help mitigate the risks listed above. But what solution in your ecosystem is protecting your organization’s sensitive data against unauthorized access, loss or misuse?
That’s where modern Data Loss Prevention (DLP) can help. DLP is a set of technologies and techniques that enable sophisticated data classification, policy creation and user behavior risk assessment to help safeguard data and assets in complex environments. They also offer tailored data loss prevention policy and reporting to ensure compliance with industry regulatory standards, such as HIPAA and PCI-DSS. And finally, DLP solutions offer the ability to monitor and respond to data loss incidences more quickly and effectively.
With that overview, let’s look at the top five reasons why it may be time to consider Security Service Edge (SSE) solutions to modernize your data loss prevention program.
When you deploy a Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), you can spot shadow IT and see where all sensitive data resides and how it is moving across the corporate environment. With this deeper visibility, IT gains greater insight to develop and evolve the policy program that protects against data loss.
So, as organizations (re)evaluate their DLP programs, consider an SSE solution to modernize. Through our SafeData portfolio, Dell offers several data loss prevention SSE solutions to protect across every network, cloud, endpoint, email and user, including a Next Gen Secure Web Gateway, powered by our partner Netskope. Dell also recently introduced a new endpoint DLP solution that enables full visibility and policy enforcement on data-in-motion between endpoint and external USB storage devices.
Protecting your data from advanced threats is a complex challenge. Through Dell SafeData, customers can reduce the risk of potential data breaches with a variety of SSE solutions.
