Data Loss Prevention

Wanstor’s Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solution helps business and not for profit organisations to keep sensitive corporate information safe and compliant against an ever changing data protection landscape. Wanstor’s DLP solution gives IT teams the ability to extend security and compliance policies beyond the borders of their own network.

In today’s world of increasing data loss events, organisations have little choice but to take action to protect sensitive data. Confidential employee and customer data, legal documents, and intellectual property are being exposed.

At Wanstor we understand that organisations of all sizes are challenged with effectively addressing this without hindering employee productivity or overloading IT staff. Technology is evolving, but ultimately ineffective in understanding user intentions. Even more difficult is trying to protect sensitive data without the long deployments, painful administration and high costs often associated with traditional DLP products.

Wanstor’s DLP solution helps IT teams overcome the barriers of data safety. We do this by providing them with a data loss prevention solution they can trust. The main features of Wanstor’s DLP solution includes:

Inspection across a variety of data sources: Wanstor’s innovative data classification engine combines users, content and process into accurate decisions. Our DLP tools deliver exceptionally high accuracy in identifying sensitive data including personally identifiable information (PII), compliance-related data (HIPAA, SOX, PCI data, etc.), and confidential business data. This is achieved through our unique IT security and data classification technology.

Fingerprint Sensitive Files: DLP scans file repositories of sensitive files and match when a file from this repository (or part of it) leaves the organisation. With files matching, sensitive files are prevented from leaving the organisation.

Network wide protection: Wanstor’s DLP solution is based on an in-line network-based software blade which runs on any existing gateway. The Wanstor DLP solution is an advancedsolution which protects data transmitted over networks with wide coverage of traffic transport types (SMTP, HTTP, HTTPS, TLS, FTP) with deep application awareness protecting data in-motion. DLP policies are created to define what to prevent and how to prevent, per policy, per network segment, per gateway and per user-group.

Complete data security: The DLP solution Wanstor offers is part of a complete data security solution to secure data at rest, data in use and data in transit. Most corporate laptops and PCs store proprietary data on their hard drives, and many users regularly work outside of a secure corporate environment. A data breach from a lost, stolen or compromised laptop can result in costly fines, lawsuits and lost revenue. Our Endpoint Full Disk Encryption secures the entire hard drive. Endpoint Media Encryption and Port Control secure removable media. Capsule Docs enables organizations to seamlessly protect documents, ensuring access for authorized users only.

Central management: The DLP solution is managed centrally with Wanstor through a user-friendly interface. Centralised management offers unmatched leverage and control of security policies, and enables organisations to use a single repository for user and group definitions, network objects, access rights, and security policies across their entire security infrastructure. Unified access policies are enforced automatically throughout the distributed environment, empowering them to securely provision access from anywhere.
