Security Driven by the Human Point

Data security is a never-ending challenge. On one hand, IT organizations are required to keep up with regulations and protect intellectual property from targeted attacks and accidental exposure. On the other, they must adapt to macro IT movements, such as the adoption of cloud applications, hybrid cloud environments and BYOD trends, all of which increase the ways data can leave your organization.

This expanding attack surface poses the most significant challenge to protecting critical data. Data security teams take the seemingly logical approach to chase data: find it, catalogue it and control it. Yet this traditional approach to data loss prevention is no longer effective because it ignores the biggest variable in data security — your people.

Instead of focusing solely on data, security should begin and end with people. The key is to gain visibility into user interactions with data and applications. Once this is achieved, you can apply a level of control based on the specific user’s risk and the sensitivity or value of the data.

An organization’s data protection program must consider the human point — the intersection of users, data and networks. In addition, the enterprise must remain vigilant of data as it moves across the enterprise and highlight the people who create, touch and move data.

Data protection must:

  • Secure regulated data with a single point of control for all the applications your people use to create, store and move data.
  • Protect intellectual property with advanced DLP that analyzes how people use data, coaches your people to make good decisions with data and prioritizes incidents by risk.

DLP Data Loss Prevention

Forcepoint DLP addresses human-centric risk with visibility and control everywhere your people work and everywhere your data resides. Security teams apply user-risk scoring to focus on the events that matter most and to accelerate compliance with global data regulations.

Accelerate Compliance

The modern IT environment presents a daunting challenge for enterprises aiming to comply with dozens of global data security regulations, especially as they move toward cloud applications and mobile workforces. Many security solutions offer some form of integrated DLP, such as the type found within cloud applications. Yet security teams face unwanted complexity and added costs when deploying and managing separate and inconsistent policies across endpoints, cloud applications and networks.

Forcepoint DLP accelerates your compliance efforts by combining pre-packaged coverage of global regulations with central control across your IT environment. Forcepoint DLP efficiently secures sensitive customer information and regulated data so you can confidently prove ongoing compliance.

  • Regulatory coverage to quickly meet and maintain compliance with more than 370 policies applicable to the regulatory demands of 83 countries.
  • Locate and remediate regulated data with network, cloud and endpoint discovery.
  • Central control and consistent policies across the IT environment.

Empower people to protect data

DLP with only preventive controls frustrates users who will circumvent them with the sole intention of completing a task. Going around security results in unnecessary risk and inadvertent data exposure.

Forcepoint DLP recognizes your people as the front lines of today’s cyber threats.

  • Discover and control data everywhere it lives, whether in the cloud or on the network, via email and at the endpoint.
  • Coach employees to make smart decisions, using messages that guide user actions, educate employees on policy and validate user intent when interacting with critical data.
  • Securely collaborate with trusted partners using policy-based auto-encryption that protects data as it moves outside your organization.
  • Automate data labeling & classification by integrating with leading third-party data classification solutions (e.g., Microsoft Information Protection, Titus, Boldon James).

Advanced detection and controls that follow the data

Malicious and accidental data breaches are complex incidents, not single events. Forcepoint DLP is a proven solution that analyst firms including Gartner, Radicati and others recognize as a leader within the industry. Forcepoint’s DLP offerings are available in 2 versions: DLP for Compliance and DLP for IP Protection.

Forcepoint DLP for Compliance provides critical capability addressing compliance with features such as:

  • Optical Character Recognition (OCR) identifies data imbedded in images while at rest or in motion.
  • Robust identification for Personally Identifiable Information (PII) offers data validation checks, real name detection, proximity analysis and context identifiers.
  • Custom encryption identification exposes data hidden from discovery and applicable controls.
  • Cumulative analysis for drip DLP detection (i.e., data that leaks out slowly over time).
  • Integration with Microsoft Information Protection analyzes encrypted files and applies appropriate DLP controls to the data.

Forcepoint DLP for IP Protection includes the capabilities above, plus applies the most advanced detection and control of potential data loss with features such as:

  • Machine learning allows users to train the system to identify relevant, never-before-seen data. Users provide the engine with positive and negative examples to flag similar business documents, source code and more.
  • Fingerprinting of structured and unstructured data allows data owners to define data types and identify full and partial matches across business documents, design plans and databases, and then apply the right control or policy that matches the data.
  • Analytics identify changes in user behavior as it relates to data interaction such as increased use of personal email.

Respond and remediate risk

Traditional approaches to DLP overload users with false positives while missing data at risk. Forcepoint DLP applies advanced analytics to correlate seemingly unrelated DLP events into prioritized incidents. Incident Risk Ranking (IRR) provided with Forcepoint DLP fuses disparate DLP indicators into a framework of Bayesian belief networks to assess the likelihood of data risk scenarios, such as data theft and broken business processes.

  • Focus response teams on greatest risk with prioritized incidents that highlight the people responsible for risk, the critical data at risk and common patterns of behavior across users.
  • Investigate and respond with workflows that link disparate events, show context of data at risk and provide analysts with the information they need to take action.
  • Safeguard user privacy with anonymization options and access controls.
  • Add the context of data into broader user analytics through deep integrations with Forcepoint Insider Threat and Forcepoint UEBA.

Visibility everywhere your people work, control everywhere your data resides

Today’s enterprises are challenged with complicated environments, where data is everywhere and requires the protection of data in places that aren’t managed or owned by the enterprise. Forcepoint DLP for Cloud Applications extends analytics and DLP policies to critical cloud applications so your data is protected, wherever it resides.

  • Identify and protect data across cloud applications, network data stores, databases and managed endpoints.
  • Gain visibility to uploads and downloads as well as data sharing and stored data on the most popular cloud apps utilized by enterprises including Office 365, Google Apps, Box, Salesforce and more.
  • Unify policy enforcement via single console to define and apply data discovery policies across all channels - cloud, network and endpoints.
  • Forcepoint hosted solution that extends enterprise DLP features including fingerprinting and machine learning to cloud applications

Forcepoint DLP includes advanced analytics and regulatory policy templates from a single point of control with every deployment. Enterprises choose the deployment options for their IT environment.
