Data Loss Prevention Software Overview
What is Data Loss Prevention?
Data Loss Protection and Prevention software aids the enterprise's DLP strategy through policy controls and detection of potential data breaches, blocking sensitive data or preventing unauthorized access to it through various methods (e.g. automatic encryption) during breaches or infiltration of the corporate network and protocol.

- Monitoring of Internet, e-mail, and instant messaging protocols
