Data Leak Prevention (DLP)

What is Data Leak Prevention?

Data leak prevention (DLP) is a strategy for making sure that end users do not send or view any sensitive or critical information they are not meant to see. The term is also used to describe software products that help a network administrator control what data end users can access and transfer.

What is ActivTrak DLP?

ActivTrak’s DLP offering involves a host of features that allow users to not only prevent sensitive data from leaving your office, but also to keep sensitive information captured by ActivTrak safe from prying eyes.

Our DLP offering is currently made up of the following pieces with more on the way:

1. USB Detection
2. File Transfer Detection
3. Complete Activity Log
4. Screenshot Image Redaction

USB Detection:
The ActivTrak Agent will sense when a USB is inserted, removed, and when files are being copied. This allows ActivTrak users to set alarms and capture screenshots based on the system event recorded.

File Transfer Detection:
Know when files are being transferred by creating a screenshot setting that can capture continuous screenshots throughout the transfer of any files.

Custom Alarms
Once you being using ActivTrak, you’ll notice some people that appear to be moving through their workstation in a different manner than others. By this we mean, you’ll notice a not-so-friendly website, maybe someone is accessing files they shouldn’t, or anything else you deem suspicious.

Complete Activity Log:
See who did who has done what within your ActivTrak account. Our Audit Log will show you every change to your account, and who was responsible for it.

Using alarms, you can target a track insider threats with ease, and terminate any application within 20 seconds of opening the program or file.

ActivTrak DLP is an Add-on service. If you’re interested in adding DLP to your account, contact your account representative today.
