Data volumes are increasing exponentially day after day, which is leading to more and more data leak possibilities through accidental disclosures of sensitive data. Companies can address these issues by adopting DLP, i.e. data loss prevention, which will put a gate valve over the data, thus checking on such data leak attempts. By adopting DLP solutions, IT can identify/monitor/protect data that is in use or in motion over the network or the data which is at rest inside company’s data storage locations over various desktops, mobile devices, laptops, tablets etc.
