Frequently Asked Questions
Although the open-source software operating system is known to be secure by design, as its adoption continues to soar, there is an increased risk for both external and internal threats. Most Linux distros come with some advanced security tools, but security incidents have proved that these are not enough anymore to prevent data breaches.
Besides external threats, internal ones are both common and extremely harmful, regardless of the used operating system. For organisations, it is crucial to make a difference between the security of an operating system and the security of the data created, which is edited and handled by people and saved on the operating system. Human error and insider threats are some of the main reasons for data loss and data theft, which can and do still occur even in a “secure” environment.
With a Data Loss Prevention program, you can set-up policies on Linux endpoints, control exit points, and detect and block sensitive data in your organization.
DLP can help you protect confidential business information and employees’ records against data breaches on Linux machines (various distributions like Ubuntu, RedHat, CentOS, OpenSUSE), taking you step by step through the policies building. Stop users from uploading, sending, and copying/pasting confidential data from Linux workstations to the cloud, to online applications and to portable storage devices.
Data Loss Prevention (DLP) tools have become an indispensable part of risk assessments. They support the identification stage by discovering and monitoring sensitive data in motion and at rest within the company environment. Solutions such as Endpoint Protector use Personally Identifiable Information (PII) scanners to search for, remediate, and monitor over 100 file types for sensitive data. Even more conveniently, some of its policies are already predefined for data protection requirements for regulations such as GDPR, PCI-DSS, or HIPAA.
DLP monitoring allows companies to identify not only where data is stored within their network, but also how it is being processed and used by its employees. This is an important aspect of risk assessment as many times the way an organisation’s workforce handles data is a major source of vulnerabilities.
Endpoint Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solutions help organizations protect their sensitive data stored on laptops, workstations, and other portable storage devices. These solutions safeguard data regardless of an endpoint’s physical location, offer content discovery capabilities as well as different remediation actions. With endpoint DLP, it is possible to choose different levels of trust for devices based on specific criteria.
