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.
