Data Loss Prevention (DLP)

Data security nowadays has become quite critical and the companies come forward with their acquired security strategies. Hence, tools which are used to provide data security, should be considered and investigated in the resulting table for making a difference and creating a more secure environment. DLP is a technology that prevents data loss in a controlled manner and observes how sensitive data replacement is made inside the company.

What is data loss prevention?

DLP is a type of security and content awareness technology that consists three basic sensitive question about your company’s valuable data. Where this data will be stored? How this data will be used? How can I protect myself from loss and theft condition? In a general definition, DLP is a technology that prevents data loss in a controlled manner and observes how sensitive data replacement is made inside company.



Data Loss Prevention (DLP)

If we observe and analyze Symantec DLP to deal with a data breach which insists on leadership at Gartner, the general is as follows:


  • Widest protection layer is provided on the topic of information security with Symantec DLP.
  • It creates really sensitive structure for false positive.
  • It provides major convenience on the point of policy managment, incident response, reporting ve administration with a single console.
  • It can touch all communication channels (cloud, email, web, endpoint and storage) and manages data security on these points with the written policies.
  • DLP which has a wide range of production about integration, offers data classification on the quite easy managed platform that KVKK required. It makes it with the integration of Symantec Information Centric Security which is one of the most popular topics.
  •  Also, it offers easy integration about encryption, data classification, rights managment tools of and 3rd party.

At this point, Symantec DLP stays at a very critic position to provide high level protection and prevent data breaches.

4 headings can be considered to carry security into highest level.

- Endpoint

- Network

- Cloud

- Storage


At this point, actions to be taken are going to be like below.

- Discover

- Monitor

- Protect

When we mention the word “Endpoint”, which of the followings will be involved in it?  Where are we moving when we've been carrying Data security to the summit, which actions are we taking?​

Removable storage, desktop e-mail, web apps and virtual desktops can be points that we can show as an endpoint. We can take actions like discovering, monitoring and preventing.

When we mention the word “Network”, which of the followings will be involved in it?  Where are we moving when we carry Data security to the summit, which actions are we taking?​

Email, Web, FTP, IM and IPv6 can be the points that we can identify as an endpoint. We can take preventing and monitoring actions with the modules like monitor, prevention for web and prevention for e-mail.

When we mention the word “storage”, which of the followings will be involved in it?  Where are we moving when we we carry data security to the summit, which actions are we taking?​

File servers, databases, Exchange, sharepoint, Nas filers are the focus points when we are searching stable data. At this point; we can pick up discovering and protecting actions. Also, it offers a really strong protection and action mechanism because of supporting Flex Response.

When we mention the word “cloud”, which of the followings will be involved in it?  Where are we moving when we carry data security to the summit, which actions are we taking?​

Cloud Apps, O365 Exchange, Gmail, Box are the points that we struggle with them as a cloud. At these points we provide data’s security with the modules like detection service and Cloud Service for e-mail.


Critical point, which is very important to emphasize, is that Symantec DLP has been successfully minimizing number of its false positive by means of advanced machine learning, image recognition, fingerprinting and describing technologies.


It is possible to add dimension to the DLP with various integrations during data protection. Because when sensitive data are shared with second contacts, it emerges out of the managed environment and walk around in cloud, it is being unprotected. Therefore, we need concepts that can extend the security. The solutions that Symantec offers to extend this concept are like below.

- Cloud Access Security Broker: Symantec CloudSOC (CASB)

- Data Classification:  Information Centric Tagging (ICT)

- Encryption: Information Centric Encryption (ICE)

- User and Entity Behavior Analytics: Symantec Information Centric Analytics (ICA)

- Web Gateways and Proxies User Authentication: Symantec ProxySG and Web Security Service (BlueCoat)

- User Authentication: Symantec VIP


 When we say “Then, why Symantec DLP?” we have many answers. We think that each company must evaluate and incorporate this software which is located at the center of KVKK. We are going to be happy to stand by yourside you at this process.
