Email Data Loss Prevention

Email Data Loss Prevention

What is email data loss prevention?

The power of email is its flexibility. It is a universal business tool that allows communication within organisations and between them. The ability to send large amounts of data in any format as an attachment or in free text gives it its strength, but this ability also brings threats. It requires staff to have knowledge of what they can and cannot send and then to adhere to those policies as well as being experts in identifying phishing attempts and also not to make a mistake.

For the first quarter of 2020, the Information Commissioner’s Office (the ICO) published figures for non cyber related breaches show that 25% are related to email being sent to the wrong recipient or incorrect use of BCC.

We have partnered with Egress to bring you the best email data prevention loss solution. The contextual machine learning in Egress Prevent stops human error on email. It quickly learns whether data is suitable for a recipient and can either query the user or park the email for approval depending on business requirements.

Egress have created a discovery tool so that you can understand your current risks. The best part is that it is free. We connect that to your existing mail infrastructure, run it for a period of time to monitor behaviours and it will analyse email traffic and highlights potentially risky activities. This enables you to make an informed decision whether you should address the risk or not.

Additionally, Egress offers end-to-end encryption, large file sharing and a wealth of other features; some of which are used by the ICO themselves.
