Five Tips for Protecting Your Data

Read White Paper

Securing your data through stronger policy enforcement

McAfee Data Loss Prevention (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 data protection policy violation is detected, McAfee DLP Prevent can encrypt, redirect, quarantine, or block the data transmission in question. This supports compliance with privacy regulations and reduces the likelihood of data breaches, while enabling legitimate data use.

Enforce data security policies

Integrate with web proxies and message transfer agents (MTAs)

Facilitate a seamless integration with a broad range of commercial email and web gateway products by using simple mail transfer protocol (SMTP) and Internet content adaptation protocol (ICAP).

Ensure consistent policy enforcement

Establish common, enterprise-wide data security policies to ensure that data protection is uniformly enforced out to the network boundary.

Leverage built-in policies

Use policies and rules for common regulatory requirements for data protection, including PCI, GLBA, HIPAA, SOX, personally identifiable information, patient health information, SSN, CCN, stripe data, financial information, and more.

Integrate case management and streamline remediation

Configure notifications for senders, recipients, content owners, and system administrators. Enable traffic enforcement through ICAP-compliant web proxies for mitigating content violations over IM, FTP, HTTP, HTTPS, and webmail. Enable mail enforcement through SMTP integration with MTAs.
