DLP - Data Leakage Prevention

DLP is perhaps the second most over-used IT term (after cloud) and means many different things to different people. 

DLP  started out as a specific technology that classified (or fingerprinted) information within an organization and then used that fingerprint to enforce policy on how that information may be used or transmitted.  Within these controls would include the ability to enable or disable:  printing, emailing, offloading to USB, or sharing.  

Today’s more generic reference to DLP includes many technologies that simply enable some form of control over data “leaking” out of the organization.  As you can imagine this can include many technologies including:  web URL filtering, email encryption, content filtering solutions, USB encryption devices, etc. etc.

Escalade IT offers solutions in both the traditional Enterprise DLP protection and the Point Solution DLP protection.
