1. Do you have Symantec DLP?

2.  Is it installed?

If you answered yes to the two questions above I would reach out to your symantec sales representative to help you answer these questions as they pertain to your environment.  

Discover - scans your network (windows file shares for example) for confidential data that is specified in a policy

Monitor - monitors confidential data or whatever data you specify in a policy

Protect - monitors, blocks, notifies whenever confidential data is being removed from your environment.
