Symantec Data Loss Prevention Benefits

Another unique feature which I have found is a solution that we needed for one of our customers. They provided laptops at one of their facilities. Their users had administrator access, but the company cannot control those laptops. They are things, moving outside and inside for technical work. They noticed that their users have personal email accounts through Gmail and they installed Google Drive on their laptops. The problem is when Google Drive synchronizes, most of these company documents have a few admins that sync back up to these personal laptops. After deploying Symantec, we created a policy for data loads. We found some confidential files had been backed up to the cloud from their personal laptops. The company documents back up through employees' personal Google Drive. They found it and informed the company, who restricted the application purpose for those employees. The customer was happy about the solution. View full review »

Previously, what was happening was that anyone could send any data outside. We now know who is sending what data and where. We can then question them: "Why have you sent that data?" View full review »
