Common causes of information breaches
Even though data leaks caused by malicious attacks, hacking, etc. occur, the main cause of data loss is still negligence. That is, it is not normally a hacker who causes a data leak, but rather, it is sometimes the company's best employees who make unfortunate mistakes.
In addition, when employees leave the company either because they are moving to another firm or because they were dismissed, sensitive information also leaves the company. Normally, when an employee leaves a company, this means documents leaving in digital format. This can be via email, flash drive, Dropbox, etc.
How does SealPath prevent data leaks?
Create a culture of information protection
SealPath makes it easier to protect information and when you share protected documents with other people, you will be helping to make them aware that this information must be protected. Create protection policies and share them with other users to keep sensitive information protected.
Know the level of exposure of sensitive information
With SealPath you can see what documents are accessible to a given person, both within and outside the organization. Regardless of where this information is, you will know who the potential users are, including former associates and employees.
Restrict access to information, wherever it is
If an employee leaves the company or you stop working with a partner, with just a few clicks, you can prevent them from having access to this information. You can also transfer permissions or ownership of the documents from one person to another.
Get the most out of DLP technologies
Sometimes the most complicated part of a DLP (data leak prevention) system is knowing what can leave the organization and what cannot, or who can remove it. This makes configuration much more complicated. However, SealPath makes it much easier to configure and for example, determine that only documents protected by SealPath can leave the company, whether they are public or restricted.
