When DLP Just Isn’t Enough

In today’s flat and hyper-connected world, enterprises share confidential data with external collaborators (vendors, partners, distributors) as regular part of business processes. This sensitive information is being shared via third-party or public networks and accessed via mobile devices and personal laptops…all without document-centric security or controls. The opportunity for confidential data to be leaked and misused is continuing to grow.

DLP and Enterprise Digital Rights Management (EDRM) are highly complementary solutions. By combining the content-awareness of DLP with the persistent document-centric protection of rights management – information can be classified, protected, and tracked throughout its lifecycle – both within and outside your organization.

Seclore Rights Management for Symantec DLP

Seclore Rights Management for Symantec DLP enables you to extend your data security capabilities to wherever your information travels. With such persistent, file-centric controls, the scope of Symantec DLP can be extended to files travelling through public and partner networks, stored on the cloud or file-sharing services, or accessed on mobile devices.

Automated Discovery-based Protection

A Seclore EDRM policy can be mapped to a Symantec DLP policy. Confidential files discovered by Symantec DLP can be automatically protected with the corresponding file usage policy.


Reducing False Positives

DLP deployments often spend 1-3 years in ‘monitoring-only’ mode out of fear of blocking a legitimate document shared with a third party. However, this also means ignoring the security risks associated with third-party usage of propriety information. With EDRM integration, confidential files going outside the perimeter can be automatically (or manually) protected before being sent out. Further, files already protected can be treated as safe and need not trigger a DLP alert – since the recipients will not be able to misuse the information.

Integration with EDRM allows you to safely put your DLP in blocking mode without the risk of false positives.
