Secure Implementation Guidance

Data Leakage Prevention Consulting

For many years the information security market focused on protecting organisations’ networks from internet born attacks. A lot of emphasis was placed on scanning and limiting incoming traffic to the enterprise network. Whilst this activity has some merit, a contrasting approach was applied to outgoing data which was usually left untracked. Companies believed that if they could protect themselves from incoming threats, none of the outgoing data was at risk. An increased trend of high profile compromises in the past few years has shown that there has to be a shift in defending critical data against sophisticated and targeted threats.

Cyber actors have long had the ability to take existing malicious functionality and obfuscate it to evade security solutions. This presents a large problem. If one attack is successful, and obfuscates itself within the network, it could spread undetected throughout the network and target critical data. A technological shift that focuses on protecting the data can prove crucial to subvert advanced threats, as often the major objective of malicious actors is to steal information, the data which is targeted by these cyber actors for theft, has to leave the network, which is when it can be detected.

A DLP solution can expose sensitive data in transit. By tracking the data in rest or intercepting data in motion, its originating source and its destination, the organisation can use this type of visibility to detect and stop advanced threats that reside on its network which may stem from external adversaries, but may also be attempted by malicious insiders to steal data. Performanta’s DLP experts have an unparalleled reputation in the DLP market, testimony to this is that Performanta has the highest number of Websense gladiators globally, ensuring that you are served by the best of breed in the DLP market place; we offer consultation and implementation for DLP solutions, to assist organisations with the following objectives:
