Discover how easy it is to get started with Symantec Data Loss Prevention.

Symantec has a proven methodology for successfully deploying a Data Loss Prevention program:
  • Visibility: The first step is to understand where your data is stored and how it is being used across your enterprise.
  • Remediation: Once you’ve identified broken business processes and high-risk users, then you can start fixing incidents and cleaning up data spills.
  • Notification: Next, turn on automated email and onscreen pop-up notifications to educate users about data loss policies — this dramatically cuts down repeat offenses.
  • Prevention: And lastly, stop users from accidentally or maliciously leaking information by quarantining, encrypting and blocking outbound communications.
