How eDiscovery Works?

Description

eDiscovery scans and identifies the confidential information in organizations’ endpoints and allows Administrators to take remediation actions like encrypting or deleting data at rest. It addresses both internal and external threats – unauthorized employees storing sensitive data on their computers and attackers which manage to bypass the network defense and try to get a hold of the company’s records

Hi! My name is Natalie, and I am here to present you the eDiscovery module of Endpoint Protector.

The eDiscovery module is used for scanning data at rest. You can scan the files residing on the computer for sensitive content. It works based on an eDiscovery policy, where you define what you want the Endpoint Protector client to scan for. Similar to a Content Aware Policy, the sensitive data can be defined based on file type or based on content. For instance, if you want to check if an employee has any files that contain Credit Card Numbers on their computer, you will have to create an eDiscovery policy with Credit Card Numbers defined as sensitive data, and apply the policy to that user’s computer. Then, you run the scan by selecting the “Start clean scan” action. After the scan has been 100% completed, you can inspect the found items, and take remediation actions, if necessary. You can either encrypt the detected file, or delete it entirely from that computer.

That was the eDiscovery module of Endpoint Protector.
Thank you for watching!

How Enforced Encryption Works?

Enforced Encryption allows IT Administrators to extend their Device Control policy and make sure all confidential data transferred to USB storage devices is automatically encrypted. The solution can be used on both macOS and Windows computers.

How Content Aware Protection Works?

Content-aware data loss prevention is a data loss-prevention measure that involves awareness of the context or content that is being protected. This module enables the dynamic application of policy based on the content and context at the time of an operation. These tools are used to address the risk of inadvertent or accidental leaks, or exposure of sensitive enterprise information outside authorised channels, using monitoring, filtering, blocking and remediation features.

How Device Control Works?

See how you can lockdown, control and monitor USB and peripheral ports to stop data theft and data loss. Our Device Control protects against data loss by monitoring and controlling data transfers from PCs to removable storage devices such as USB drives.

User Remediation - Endpoint Protector by CoSoSys

User Remediation is an important new feature that can be applied to your DLP policies in Endpoint Protector 5.4.0.0. If enabled, your users will be able to override the DLP policy, adding a justification for doing so.

Currently available for the Content Aware Protection module, this feature significantly improves the experience for your end-users and reduces the time your admin team spends responding to tickets and requests to bypass a policy restriction.
