The EdgeWave Messaging Security Suite includes a content analysis and policy engine that uses proprietary technology to protect private information transmitted via outgoing email. This data protection technology analyzes information being sent out of your network, to detect private content in data in motion and prevent sensitive and confidential data from leaving your network. EdgeWave DLP gives you the powerful tools you need to comply with government regulations, such as HIPAA and GLBA, and prevents the outbound communication of all types of private or objectionable data,
Implementation is easy
Just route your SMTP email to the EdgeWave Email Security solution and configure the policies for DLP. The EdgeWave solution then analyzes the email leaving your organization for violations of any content analysis types that are enabled. You can also specify what action to take when a content analysis violation is found: hold in quarantine until further review or block. You may define rules that apply to all users or only to specified sender email addresses or content analysis types.
Credit card matching
Major credit card companies use standard numbering sequences that are unique to each brand of card, such as Visa, MasterCard, or Discover. EdgeWave DLP catches any credit card numbers that might be leaving your organization with matching technology that recognizes the identifiable patterns of numbers all major credit card companies use. In addition, they employ the LUHN algorithm to validate the number, which virtually eliminates the possibility that messages will be incorrectly identified as policy violations.
Social security numbers
EdgeWave DLP has a built-in extended regular expression that identifies U. S. Social Security numbers contained in data and files being transferred from your network. With identity theft still a critical, global problem, keeping this information from leaving your organization is vitally important.
Personal healthcare and financial information
A lexicon is an xml file that contains a list of specialized vocabulary and phrases unique to a specific subject. EdgeWave DLP includes built-in lexicons for the financial and healthcare industries that prevent accidental or malicious exposure of personal health or financial information - a critical factor in complying with regulatory requirements. The solution uses these and other lexicons to examine the contents of data and files, identifying specific words and phrases unique to the financial and healthcare industries. This feature also requires a match on information that would identify the person, helping prevent false positives.
