About DeviceLock®

The data you are striving to protect behind firewalls and passwords is likely still slipping through your fingers. Data leaks can be initiated by either unwitting employees or users with malicious intent copying proprietary or sensitive information from their PCs to flash memory sticks, smartphones, cameras, PDA’s, DVD/CDROMs, or other convenient forms of portable storage. Or, leaks may spring from user emails, instant messages, web forms, social network exchanges or telnet sessions. Wireless endpoint interfaces like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Infrared as well as device synchronization channels provide additional avenues for data loss. Likewise, endpoint PCs can be infected with vicious malware that harvest user keystrokes and send the stolen data over SMTP or FTP channels into criminal hands. While these vulnerabilities can evade both network security solutions and native Windows controls, the DeviceLock® Endpoint Data Leak Prevention (DLP) Suite addresses them. It enforces data protection policies with awareness of both the context and content of data flows across endpoint channels.

Data leakage prevention starts with contextual control — that is, blocking or allowing data flows by recognizing the user, the data types, the interface, the device or network protocol, the flow direction, the state of encryption, the date and time, etc. Some scenarios call for a deeper level of awareness than context alone can provide; for example, when the data being handled contains personally identifiable information, when the input/output channel is conventionally open and uncontrolled, and when the users involved have situations or backgrounds considered high risk. Security administrators can gain greater peace of mind by passing data flows that fall into any of these categories through an additional content analysis and filtering step before allowing the data transfer to complete.
