Hi Team,

Can any one let me know the practical purpose of Endpoint Discover module. How can I use it in my organization (BFSI sector).

Regards,

use the module which is agent-based scans of endpoints including laptops,desktops, and workstations at remote offices to expose confidential data.

yes, also there is Network Discover (Network Discover) scans storage locations to expose confidential data. These includes MS SQL, Sharepoint, Exchange.

Thanks Pete. Just one more help. Could you refer me to a Symantec doc that talks about how to configure a policy for scanning using discover module.

Just want to jump in here... If you set a policy up it will apply to all areas the policy group is applied to.  So if you setup a policy and apply it to the Default Policy Group, all servers (Endpoint, Discover, Network Monitor, etc) that have that policy  group would get the policy.

Does that make sense?

 

If I wanted to limit a policy to just an endpoint, then i would have to create a policy group (Endpoint Policy Group) and then apply that group just to my Endpoint server.

 

Drop me a note if that doesn't make sense

DLP admin guide is the one that should be read.
