McAfee DLP Prevent protects against data loss by ensuring that data only leaves the network when appropriate — whether through email, webmail, instant messenger, wikis, blogs, portals, HTTP/HTTPS, or FTP transfers. If a policy violation is detected, DLP Prevent can, at your choice, encrypt, redirect, quarantine, or even block the data transmission in question. This supports compliance with privacy regulations and reduces the likelihood of data breaches, while enabling legitimate data use.
Scan inbound/outbound network traffic — DLP Prevent delivers comprehensive scans of inbound and outbound network traffic across all ports, protocols, and content types.
Automatically identify over 300 content types — Using comprehensive data classification, DLP Prevent automatically identifies and protects more than 300 different content types (including complex computer aided design (CAD) files) in over 13 languages.
Gain visibility to security incidents — Customized views and incident reports provide summary and detailed views of security incidents and the mediation actions taken.
Protect more than 300 standard content types, including Microsoft Office documents, multimedia files, source code, design files, archives, encrypted files, built-in policies, and intellectual property, as well as sensitive information in exotic data formats through the use of customer filters.
Report all incidents to our centralized incident management console for access by any authorized user for follow-up, delegation, or inclusion in new or existing cases.
Filter and control sensitive information, and index and enforce fine-grained security policies for all content.
Facilitate a seamless integration with a broad range of commercial email and web gateway products (standards-based integration via simple mail transfer protocol (SMTP) and Internet content adaptation protocol (ICAP)).
Establish common, enterprise-wide policies to ensure that data protection is uniformly enforced out to the network boundary.
Use built-in policies and rules for common regulatory requirements, including PCI, GLBA, HIPAA, SOX, personally identifiable information, patient health information, SSN, CCN, stripe data, financial information, and more. Network DLP Prevent also provides built-in policies for intellectual property assets (e.g., source code, internal memos, product documents, and pricing information).
Get integrated case management with configurable notification messages for senders, recipients, content owners, and system administrators. You can enable traffic enforcement through ICAP integration with ICAP-compliant web proxies for mitigating content violations over IM, FTP, HTTP, HTTPS, and webmail. You can enable mail enforcement through SMTP integration with mail transfer agent (MTA) devices.
Customize summary and detail views of incident logs and search results with DLP Prevent’s powerful analytics engine. You can create reports with optional trending data on demand or schedule for regular delivery. The system comes with over 20 preconfigured, customizable reports to get you started.
McAfee DLP Manager, McAfee DLP Monitor, McAfee DLP Discover, and McAfee DLP Prevent are now supported on the McAfee DLP 4400 appliance. The DLP 4400 appliance is an Intel-based platform with dual six core CPUs, 24 GB of RAM and 8 TB of storage in a 2U form factor. DLP hardware appliance solutions are self-contained devices. There are no minimum software or hardware system requirements or additional database installations required.
With the release of McAfee Data Loss Prevention (DLP) 9.2, McAfee DLP Manager, McAfee DLP Monitor, McAfee DLP Discover, and McAfee DLP Prevent are also available as virtual appliances. McAfee DLP virtual appliances run on VMware ESX or VMware ESXi 4.1 servers.
System throughput: Up to 200 Mbps of full content analysis, indexing, and storage throughput per Network DLP Prevent appliance is available. For networks with higher throughput requirements, you can use multiple devices in a load-balanced configuration.
Network integration: DLP Prevent integrates passively into the network using either a Switched Port Analyzer (SPAN) port or a physically inline network tap (optional). It integrates into the network as an off-path appliance that is active within the data path using Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP)-compliant mail transfer agents (MTAs) and Internet content adaptation protocol (ICAP)-compliant web proxies.
Protocols supported: DLP Prevent supports HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, and instant messaging (IM) protocols via the ICAP to an ICAP-compliant proxy. Refer to your proxy vendor for protocols supported by your proxy. DLP Prevent also supports SMTP via integration with MTAs.
The Network DLP 1650 and Network DLP 3650 appliances have been discontinued. In accordance with McAfee’s End of Life policy, they are being supported until October 2016.
