Data Loss Prevention

Keep Your Confidential Data Private

Data breaches pose a serious threat to organizations of all sizes, as the number of incidents and associated costs are on the rise.

Protect the Data You Care About Most

With WatchGuard DLP, you get automatic inspection and protection of your data in motion, whether it is transferred via email, web, or FTP. WatchGuard DLP includes a predefined library of more than 200 rules for 18 countries, protecting your personally identifiable information (PII), financial data, healthcare information, and other confidential data.

Data Protection and Compliance Made Easy

From an intuitive management console, easily and quickly apply rule sets and choose to block or log flagged transmissions, as well as quarantine them for further review. You can also create custom rule sets, set exceptions for specific users and groups, and decide the action taken when data cannot be scanned, such as corrupted or password protected files. Set alarms for when a transmission is flagged to instantly stay on top of potential threats.

See Your Data in Motion

Use WatchGuard Dimension to view how many total connections were scanned and the number of violations were identified, including allowed, denied, and quarantined. You can also view specific details for each violation, including the rule that was triggered, the source destination for IP addresses, and sender and recipients for emails.

How it Works

DLP examines outbound traffic using pattern matching to identify the exfiltration of sensitive information.
If sensitive information is identified, the connection is blocked or quarantined and the administrator is notified.
