Dlp Query for Data Security

Created: 24 May 2013 | 10 comments

Hello

If i remove the hard disk and make it another system as a secondary and take the information as a Backup. I think dlp can’t play role in this scenario, is it?

if the other system have DLP agent and policy configured it can stop sensitive data. if this is the requirement you can use the encryption on the disk.

not unless the other system is running DLP

you have to use different product for encrypting the data, Symantec  Encryption is the one you can look for.

EDIT##

@stumnro:  I meant to say Encryption from Symantec.

Pete,

Symantec Endpoint Encryption is the wrong choice.... this is the SEE product is going EOS this year.

Symantec Encryption powered by PGP is the new branding of PGP, is incorporates all the best of PGP and rumor is there is a path for removable mendia coming also since PGP portable is dead.

SEE runs on a windows server with IIS and sql DB, PGP is a soft appliance you build in vmware or use the approved hardware list.

technical..

 

DLP plays a role in the WHOLE REALM of security its not a silver bullet, lets talk about encryption, physical security, if you have people pulling drives out of machines and copying them you are having other issues and DLP is not your first concern. a simple kensingtonlock on the machine will prevent this.

 

and yes encryption is a answer like i mentioned above, this includes desktop and laptops.

Y ou are right technical specalist,

IF u run windows with othere hard disk and it has no DLP agent then you can do this or even if you run linux live , u can copy data as untill DLP installed windows not running it cant monitor the activity.

I hope this will suffice.
