 Data leakage prevention

It’s often said that an organisation’s most important assets are its people and its corporate information. Yet circumstances can arise that place these two assets at odds. 

Without a data-centric approach to information security that prevents employees from: 
  • accessing information they shouldn’t
  • using information to which they are entitled against you
  • or simply absent-mindedly losing or misapplying corporate information … your organisation is at risk. 
​You need effective data leakage prevention (DLP) strategy to protect and control your data. ​


DLP isn't a technical issue. It's a business issue. In addition − because it focuses on data − DLP should form part of the larger compliance and privacy discussion in your organisation.

Dimension Data's Data Leakage Prevention Assessment provides a snapshot of the strengths and weaknesses of an information security programme. It involves:

  • a workshop-based session with key stakeholders.
  • a discovery exercise to assess the data footprint across the network and/or file repositories. 
  • the development of a data security roadmap strategy.

In addition, Dimension Data assists you with DLP-related services and technology offerings from our strategic vendor partners: RSA, McAfee , Cisco, Blue Coat and Check Point.

Take a data-centric approach to security … and make the most of your existing investments.
