Top 5 Reasons to Upgrade to Symantec DLP 15.5


Data Loss Prevention policies dynamically classify documents on the endpoint:

Rather than using ICT rules now we can use DLP policies to drive classification of Microsoft Office and Microsoft Outlook documents on the endpoint. End users recieve sugguested classifiacations tags,  this automation adds stronger information protection;


Ability to scan and tag existing data on endpoints :

Classification scan feature allow us to classify data stored in the endpoints. Once we configured the endpoint targets  for a scan, then DLP can apply appropriate tag as a response to a policy violation.

Support for Exact Match Data Identifier (EMDI) detection:

EMDI detection is a powerful detection technology that enables you  to detect structured dat, especially PII, with a high  degree of accuracy. EDMI adds an additional validation which  help to reduce and nearly eliminate false positives in your Data Loss Prevention environment.

Integration with Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP), Symantec Intensive Protection file reputation service and Information Centric Defense:

Symantec DLP can obtain application reputaion information from Symantec Endpoint Protection and create incidents when suspect applications are used to open files. This ability is exist even if you do not have a deployed SEP. If SEP deployed, DLP  can SEP  about the existence of sensitive files through a new response rule. This integration adds Information Centric Defense security capabilities to your organization
