Complete Catalog of Sensitive Data Types for Immediate Time to Value
Adopting DLP can be challenging for most organizations as they aim to accurately classify data without creating false positives and impacting user productivity. Cato DLP provides security teams with a head start by including a catalog of more than 350 tested and validated pre-defined data types that can be used immediately. The catalog covers common use cases for protecting confidential data, PII, financial information, and achieving regulatory compliance across multiple geographies and enables fast and efficient DLP rollout.
Bring-your-own-Sensitivity Labels to Cato DLP
Enterprises use sensitivity labels to efficiently classify their data and improve data protection accuracy across multiple platforms. Cato DLP supports Microsoft Information Protection (MIP) and custom sensitivity labels. Through a simple configuration, the enterprise’s MIP labels can be recognized by Cato DLP and used in applicable data protection policies. Consistent usage sensitivity labels in DLP rules enables organizations to achieve enterprise-wide, unified data protection.
Customize and Validate Sensitive Data Types
DLP is not a one-size fits all solution and the ability to create custom data types is essential to making a data protection policy that works for your organization. Cato’s DLP allows administrators to build custom data types based on sensitivity labels, keywords, dictionaries, and regular expressions. To further reduce false positives, Cato DLP provides an instant validation tool allowing admins to test data protection policies against sample files before enforcing them in production. Enterprise-specific policy creation and fine tuning effort is minimized.
Inline and Out-of-Band Data Protection
Users access cloud applications both in the office and remotely, and from corporate devices and BYOD, requiring out-of-band and inline data protection. In addition to its inherent visibility and control of inline traffic, Cato DLP uses APIs for common SaaS applications for near real-time monitoring of data usage to prevent data leakage and data sharing misconfiguration. Thus, Cato DLP provides comprehensive and complete data protection across all application and data access scenarios.
One Dashboard for Enterprise Data Protection
Data protection is an ongoing responsibility that requires continuous enforcement, monitoring, and fine-tuning. Cato DLP provides a dedicated dashboard for efficient visibility into DLP events and related activities. Administrators gain instant insight into key DLP metrics such as sensitive data usage violations by users, violators, file types, and data profiles. When analyzed over time and across geographies, risk and compliance teams can identify necessary adjustments to corporate policies and processes.
360 Degrees Data Protection for All Traffic
The Cato DLP engine inspects all traffic going to private applications in on-premises and cloud datacenters, and SaaS applications. It identifies sensitive data usage and applies the data protection policies consistently, regardless of the traffic source or destination. As a cloud-delivered service, Cato DLP eliminates the need to backhaul traffic for inspection in specific locations to minimize the impact of DLP controls on application responsiveness and the user’s productivity.
