This issue has been solved. See solution.

One of our client is persistently asking me to give him the exact details of bandwidth requirement for DLP. I tried to explain to him that it depends upon the policies that they will develop, the number of incidents that are going to generate and wether they want retain attachments or not. But he is concerned that his network bandwidth might not get choked by DLP solution and as such has following questions before he is going to allow deployment of DLP

 

1) What is the heart beat interval of Endpoint Agents with Endpoint Prevent Server?

2) What is the size of the policy that is deployed on agents?

3) How much bandwidth is needed for the communication between Detection Servers with Enforce  Server?

4) How much bandwidth is needed for the communication between Endpoint Agents with Endpoint Prevent Server for reporting incidents?

 

I will really appreciate if someone can answer these queries or point me to Documentation where i can find it..

 This heartbeat is 4 bytes on top of the TCP header.
