In Pakistan, this solution is used mainly in the banking sector for protecting the credit card payment industry. Our clients are generally small businesses. We are partners with Symantec and I'm the manager of information security.

I am an L2 engineer. I'm doing the part of the implementation and the agent upgrades. If any requirements come in for Oracle upgrading we go forward and make it happen. Apart from that, we are doing agent installation and troubleshooting. Moreover, we'll be in contact with the SCCM team, and give packages to them. They will push the package to all the machines for the SCCM. We can connect to the virtual team and do the other lines for server backups or upgrades.

I use it in my own environment for data loss prevention. I installed it for testing purposes. I've logged some of my data through different policies. However, I've only done this at the endpoint channel, not on, for example, email channels.

The primary use case of this solution is for data loss prevention and confidential classification for internal public architecture. We are trying to prevent the data loss of sensitive files that are confidential, and not let them out of the organization's control.

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.

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.
