We work in the banking field. We deploy data loss prevention. Our branch protects our clients' data, credit card numbers, account numbers, and other confidential and sensitive data.

The solution is primarily used for the prevention of data leakage mostly from email and external drives or thumb drives. It's also used for setting certain policies.

Our primary use case for this solution is to protect data from being stolen from the company. It protects and monitors data that moves out without us knowing about it.

The primary use case is for handling confidential data, such as customer data, employee data, and IT confidential information. We used this solution in some contracting work. We classify the data by assigning each division user their own classification, e.g., confidential, restricted, internal, or public. According to the data we get from the customer, we find fairly unique keywords and common words from the data and we put it on the Symantec DLP engine as a use case or policy. If, for example, the content or classified files cannot leave the organization, I can turn the use case into a policy as keywords mentioning specific data and unique keywords in the documents. This restricts documents from leaving the organization. That's how I create a policy based on the use case.

We are only using the security part of it. We are solution providers. We suggest this solution to our clients for data loss prevention. It also can prevent Trojan and virus attacks on data centers.

The primary use case is to protect the content our data, e.g., if a document is marked as a confidential, it should not suddenly be sent into the Internet via email. I have been the product for two years.
