Data Loss Prevention for Linux
Monitor, Control and Lockdown USB and peripheral ports, as well as confidential data leaving Linux machines.
Ever since its early days, Linux has always been part of the corporate networks due to its reputation for security, flexibility, reliability, and high performance. Although it was mainly running on servers or on computers in IT departments, things have definitely changed. Linux adoption and popularity continues to grow, and in today’s cross-platform work environment, regular users can be found sitting behind Ubuntu, openSUSE, RedHat or other Linux machines.
Similar to Macs increased popularity, Linux’s success has made it one of the main targets for both outsider and insider attacks and malicious intent. With more people looking to exploit the Linux operating systems and various distributions, it is inevitable that vulnerabilities have grown. However, the main threat is not directly linked to the vulnerabilities - as they are constantly being fixed and the Linux community is also fast to help develop patches. The main threat is due to more and more confidential data being stored on Linux machines that have no solutions to monitor how data is being used or to provide visibility into applications and users’ activity.
With most of the data breaches caused by malicious insiders or human error, deploying a cross-platform Data Loss Preventions solution that works on the main Linux distributions becomes essential.
