McAfee DLP Discover

Locate, classify, and protect your sensitive data with ease

Discover and protect sensitive data on premises and in the cloud

McAfee Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Discover helps find and remediate sensitive data that resides on your servers, network shares, databases, and in the cloud.

Simplified data protection

Cut the time and effort required to secure enterprise information. McAfee DLP Discover automatically scans all accessible resources to locate sensitive data, uncovers potential risks, and identifies the content owner.

Better data visibility

Unified policy creation, reporting, and management give you better visibility and control over your most vital data—whether it is on premises or in the cloud.

Remediation of data leaks

Easily review and repair violations, and prevent sensitive data from being proliferated outside of your environment. Learn the origin of content violations, register and generate signatures, and send alert notifications to protect documents.

Built-in incident workflow

In the case of a policy violation, integrated case management sends notifications to content owners and system administrators.

Prevent the loss of sensitive data

Identify business critical data

Classify both structured and unstructured data with exact data matching and over 300 content types.

Get powerful reporting

Customize summary and detail views of inventory logs and search results. Create reports on demand or schedule for regular delivery, and access over 20 preconfigured, customizable reports.

Deploy more easily

Available as a software-based agent, policies can be centrally deployed by McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator on multiple servers for scalability and a minimized footprint.
