Data Loss Prevention for Manufacturing

Protect your competitive advantage, inventions, designs and customers' data

Control what files can leave the network
Setup DLP without affecting users' productivity
Comply with various laws and regulations

For manufacturing firms, one of their most valuable assets is IP - Intellectual Property. Businesses and innovators need easy, cost-effective ways to protect confidential data regarding their products and inventions, their designs, and their brands.

Depending on the industry, there are several rules and regulations to comply with. Therefore, besides losing the competitive advantage due to a data loss incident, there is also the issue of fines. On top of this, one must also consider downtime, as well as a decline in sales – due to a negative impact on the company’s image.

A manufacturing business can be any business that uses raw materials, components or parts to make finished goods – that can be used as they are or for making a different product. Therefore, such companies can be found in all industries: healthcare, pharmaceutical, automotive, utilities, energy, agriculture, construction, education, etc.

With data regarding patents, designs, ingredients, suppliers, customers and more, the threat of data loss, data theft or data leaks is ever-present. As manufacturing environments have various specific requirements, a Data Loss Prevention solution that can cover multiple needs and can be deployed in various ways (hardware appliance, virtual appliance or cloud-based) is essential.


In today's manufacturing organizations, data is saved in different locations, on different workstations (Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux) and a large mobile device fleet (Android and iOS) connects to the internal network. A solution that covers various aspects of Data Loss Prevention and extends to Mobile Device Management helps to safeguard data and to prevent data breaches.

Endpoint Protector DLP and MDM solutions protect highly sensitive data like patents, product sketches and inventions, maintaining the competitive advantage a manufacturing company may have. Efficient content scanning before documents are sent to untrusted e-mail addresses, devices or apps can stop unwanted events and data security incidents.
