As more and more companies are encouraging their employees to work from anywhere, on any device, data loss prevention service (DLP) has evolved from an option to a requirement. In the past, DLP security has been associated with complicated deployments and pervading operational management issues, yet DLP security is not so much a product but a strategy—success depends on methodology and execution.Data loss prevention software detects potential data breaches/data ex-filtration transmissions and prevents them by monitoring, detecting and blocking sensitive data while in use (endpoint actions), in motion (network traffic), and at rest (data storage).

Exploring Data Loss, Data Leaks, and Related Terminology

The terms “data loss” and “data leak” are related and are often used interchangeably. Data loss incidents turn into data leak incidents in cases where media containing sensitive information is lost and subsequently acquired by an unauthorized party. However, a data leak is possible without losing the data on the originating side. 

Other terms associated with data leakage prevention are information leak detection and prevention (ILDP), information leak prevention (ILP), content monitoring and filtering (CMF),

information protection and control (IPC) and extrusion prevention system (EPS), as opposed to intrusion prevention system.
