McAfee Total Protection for Data Loss Prevention

DLP for a dynamic world


McAfee Total Protection for Data Loss Prevention (DLP) safeguards intellectual property and ensures compliance by protecting sensitive data wherever it lives — on premise, in the cloud, or at the endpoints. McAfee DLP is delivered through low-maintenance appliances (physical or virtual) and McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) platform, for streamlined deployment, management, updates, and reports.

Time-to-value deployment — Unique, non-invasive Capture technology enables organizations to build and deploy DLP policies faster and more accurately without guesswork or trial and error.

Simplified policy management — Flexible file tagging helps organizations set up time-saving policies based on location and application types. Data Classification technology categorizes large amounts of data so only relevant files are examined and remediated.

Proactive data protection — The only DLP solution that keeps a record of all data leaving the network egress points — giving you visibility into how your sensitive information is being used. It enables you to identify and fix existing broken business processes therefore reducing risk of breach in the future.
