Symantec Data Loss Prevention Valuable Features

They have a feature on the management side called the document indexer. If you have a unique document with many near-identical versions, which have one or several values that change, while the rest of the content stays the same. You can collect 50 of those documents and put them into this feature of the Symantec DLP system. It will compress them and create a profile specifically for that document. For example, if you are getting a daily performance report for your company, each report will be completely the same, except some of the numerical values may change. I can collect 50 documents from the last 50 days and put them into the system to compress the documents and create a profile. I can then put this in a policy that will monitor only those documents. If an employee tries to send those documents outside without authorization, the system will block the documents. I have found the data indexer in Symantec, but I didn't find it in McAfee.

I'm able to track everyone who is trying to send information outside the environment and to know if they are not supposed to be sending it. I'm also able to see the people who are accessing or maybe try to access the information they are not supposed to be accessing based on their level of classification. It gives me overall control of who has got access to what and at what point and who can do what with specific information. View full review »

In DLP one of the most valuable features is that you can check attachments. In addition, it gives me the data such that, if someone is using a browser and email, I'm able to figure out who is sending the data. View full review »
