The Challenge

Samsung R&D Institute Bangladesh searched for a DLP solution that helps manage insider threats and monitors employee activity related to data transfers.

They needed a tool that supports the compliance requirements of different data protection regulations, such as the GDPR. The company was also keen to add an additional layer of security to prevent data loss and data leaks.

The ideal product for Samsung R&D Institute Bangladesh is easy-to-use and comes with a user-friendly interface.

The Solution

Samsung R&D Institute Bangladesh is using Endpoint Protector’s Device Control and Content Aware Protection modules.

The Device Control module helps SRBD monitor and control USB drives, smartphones, devices connecting through Bluetooth and serial ports, etc. For allowed devices, the company uses Endpoint Protector’s File tracing feature to track data transfers to and from devices.
