Cons

"Since being acquired by Broadcom, the support has really degraded for small and medium enterprises.""The solution could offer improved more informative documentation.""Technical support is pathetic.""Symantec could improve by being more creative and simplifying the functions.

    Overview

    Safetica is a cost-effective, easy-to-use Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solution. It performs security audits, prevents sensitive data from leaving your company and sheds light on what is going on in your organization. Safetica can be installed in a matter of hours — it secures your information quickly and easily.

    Keeping sensitive corporate information safe and compliant has never been easy. But today, you’re faced with a totally new set of data protection challenges. Sensitive information is leaving the safety of your corporate network as more employees share files over consumer cloud storage services and access those files on their own mobile devices. The number of targeted cyber attacks continues to grow, as cybercriminals develop effective new methods for defeating traditional security measures and stealing corporate information. And as all of these factors converge, it becomes increasingly difficult to manage corporate information and protect it against loss and theft. 

    Symantec Data Loss Prevention (DLP) provides a comprehensive approach to information protection that embraces today’s cloud- and mobile-centered realities. With DLP, you can:

    • Discover where data is stored across all of your cloud, mobile, network, endpoint, and storage systems

    • Monitor how data is being used, whether your employees are on or off the network

    • Protect data from being leaked or stolen—no matter where it’s stored or how it’s used
