As regulations and corporate standards place increasing demands on IT to ensure safe data handling, deploying necessary protective solutions can seem daunting. Some data loss prevention (DLP) products require substantial effort to deploy and typically have large ongoing consulting costs. These products leave it up to IT to know about all the data that needs to be protected. But it’s impossible for IT to identify all of the sensitive data, interpret the regulations, and translate them into effective policies. When faced with this dilemma, many companies simply fall back to “good enough” solutions that don’t provide basic protection and offer little insight into ongoing data-related risk.
McAfee Data Loss Prevention Solution Components Provide Everything You Need.
McAfee DLP Discover
Helps you find your data on-premise or in the cloud.
Understanding where sensitive data resides is the first step to securing it. McAfee DLP Discover simplifies the discovery with a simple three-step process—inventory, categorisation, and remediation. Unlike other solutions that expect you to know exactly what content you want to protect and the locations where it’s likely to be stored, McAfee DLP Discover does the heavy lifting by rapidly categorising large amounts of unclassified data—so that only relevant files are being examined and remediated.
The three steps are:
Inventory – Creates an inventory of assets across the organization and performs analytics on the metadata only for speed.
Categorisation – Classifies content into buckets and performs analytics on the classified content.
Remediation – Scans the classified data for policy violations, remediates, and registers information.
With the new data classification capabilities in McAfee DLP Discover, you now have a scalable and rapid way to classify your data, scan your data, and automate remediation tasks.
McAfee DLP Prevent
Enforces policies for information leaving the network through email, webmail, instant messaging (IM), wikis, blogs, portals, and Web 2.0 technologies.
Ensure the security of the information you know you must protect—Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, and financial data—and the information you want to protect, such as highly valuable intellectual property. McAfee DLP Prevent allows you to take a variety of remediation actions, including encrypting, redirecting, quarantining, and blocking—so you can ensure compliance with regulations governing the privacy of sensitive information and reduce the data risk to your business.
McAfee DLP Prevent offers standards-based integration with network gateways:
Enforces policies for information leaving the network through email, webmail, IM, wikis, blogs, portals, HTTP/HTTPS, and FTP transfers Integration with email gateways is done via SMTP, while web traffic is inspected using the internet content adaptation protocol (ICAP).
McAfee DLP Monitor
McAfee DLP Monitor performs real-time scanning and analysis of network traffic.
Through detailed classification, indexing, and storage of all network traffic—not just information that violates its real-time policies—the McAfee DLP Monitor appliance allows you to quickly leverage historical information to understand what data is sensitive, how it is being used, who is using it, and where it is going. This gives you the ability to build effective and accurate policies the first time and allows you to anticipate how changes in your environment might impact the security of the sensitive data it contains. Additionally, you can perform rapid investigations based on the historical data to ensure that you leave no stone unturned:
Scan and analyse information in real time – Integrated into the network using a switched port analyser (SPAN) or tap
port, the McAfee DLP Monitor appliance performs real-time scanning and analysis of network traffic at line speeds.
Discover unknown risks – Through detailed classification, indexing, and storage of all network traffic, not just information that matches
existing rules, the McAfee DLP Monitor appliance allows you to quickly build a deep understanding of where data is, how it is being used, who is using it, and where it is going, helping you anticipate new risks as the environment changes.
