With intellectual property and data now forming a substantial part of company value, losing control of this information can seriously impact share price and brand reputation. However, with the combination of remote mass working and the increasing embrace of cloud applications, data leakage is often only a few clicks away.
Sapphire provides best-of-breed Data Loss Prevention (DLP) tools that help organisations ensure critical data control and compliance. Applied across endpoints and networks, it ensures controls on the distribution of information against a set of agreed policies to track insider threats and malicious actions.
Alert: Reduce the risk from social engineering and malware attacks exfiltrating data in targeted attacks

Data leakage is the unauthorised exfiltration of information from within a network to an external recipient.
To understand how data leakage can be prevented, it is crucial to understand the different data leakage types. These include:
Data loss prevention (DLP) ensures a tight set of rules and policies around data use, and particularly extraction, in an organisation. These policies are then enforced by specialised software.
Best practice for minimising data leakage on your network includes:
i. Classify data according to value and the sensitivity
Know which data can be shared and who should access the data you store and use this to form policies
ii. Proactively identify and mitigate using DLP solutions
Proactively identify and mitigate risks effectively by automating progressive DLP solutions
