Choosing the right data loss prevention technology.

Data loss due to leaks can be a disaster for your organization, but the right data loss prevention technology can put an end to leaks once and for all.

Nearly all of your business-critical information today exists in digital form – which means it can be easily attached to an email and sent to contacts outside the organization. Whether the leak is inadvertent or malicious, the loss of sensitive material like customer lists, financial data and intellectual property can be devastating.

The right data loss prevention technology can stop leaks by blocking email from leaving the organization. But choosing the right data loss prevention (DLP) solution is paramount. To avoid adding additional resources and staff, your data loss prevention technology must be easy to deploy, use and maintain. To make sure you're preventing leaks at every level, your data leak prevention software must monitor email throughout the organization, in every geographic location and in every department. And to ensure accuracy and avoid false positives, your DLP solutions must provide granular control over data protection policies.

That's why, when choosing data loss prevention technology, more companies worldwide turn to email data security software from Mimecast.
