Symantec Data Loss Prevention Primary Use Case

SK
Associate at a insurance company with 10,001+ employees

I am an L2 engineer. I'm doing the part of the implementation and the agent upgrades. If any requirements come in for Oracle upgrading we go forward and make it happen. Apart from that, we are doing agent installation and troubleshooting. 

Moreover, we'll be in contact with the SCCM team, and give packages to them. They will push the package to all the machines for the SCCM. We can connect to the virtual team and do the other lines for server backups or upgrades.

We use this solution for exact and index data matching, vector machine learning and endpoint prevention. We can use USB, make the solution notify a block policy and make response rules. It allows us to add the directory indication, make the agent configuration from the DLP, and then enforce them.

We can also complete different types of single-tier, two-tier and three-tier installations. For single-tier installation, it can enforce or recommend detections servers on the same servers. For two-tier, it can enforce on the same server and the detection server. And for three-tier, Oracle enforced, and the detection server is on separate servers.

I use it in my own environment for data loss prevention.

I installed it for testing purposes. I've logged some of my data through different policies. However, I've only done this at the endpoint channel, not on, for example, email channels.

Where we are so far deployed is into the financial sector and in telecom, and they want to evaluate what kind of information users are usually trying to touch, which they're not supposed to be touched. They want to see that analysis. If there are any outflows, they want to mediate that as well - especially if there is any breach on the team.

IT Security Specialist at TT Systems LLC

We use Symantec Data Loss Prevention mostly for preventing and protecting against email threats. The tool tracks internal to external emails. Whatever attachment there is that's moving from internal to external is also tracked. If someone's sending a file, it would also be forwarded to the team lead or manager. The password for signing into the email should not be shared because when shared, it will be blocked. We have configured these policies in Symantec Data Loss Prevention. The tool also tracks whenever a user transfers data from one machine to another. These are our use cases for it.

We are managed service provider and system integrator. We have different deployment models and scenarios for different customers, but usually, we deploy Symantec Data Loss Prevention on-premise.

Our clients that are using Symantec Data Loss Prevention have massive use of documentation and they are supporting the digital signatures happening now everywhere. They wanted to secure this information with the solution.

We typically add another solution with Symantec Data Loss Prevention from Titus. It is used for data classification, allowing us to have the DLP and the data classification in one offering.
