Pros
Fortra
  • Email data leaks - DLP software must prevent certain actions to work well. Let's say you try to copy and paste an SS # to an email, or upload sensitive data to your personal email account. Guardian Edge can prevent that, and then alert administrators that it happened
  • Unauthorized file copies - Guardian Edge can also prevent users from copying files from a sensitive restricted area to somewhere else where they might be able to more easily exfiltrate it. A good example would be from a company file share to a less secure server or their own home drive
  • Alerting Administrators of suspicious activities - Any time a user uploads a file to an upload service or personal email, it is logged and reported as an event to be reviewed. If it found nothing in scanning the data, it will still notify you that it happened so you can review it yourself to confirm it wasn't a false negative.

DG is the only DLP platform I've used at my current employer. I used it at my previous employer as well, and we ended up abandoning future deployments of it due to many problems caused by it, especially with web browsers. This was in 2015, rather than the 2018 version I used with my current employer, but I feel it still warrants mentioning. DG works great...when it works. When it doesn't, it's a disaster.
