Office 365 Data Loss Prevention and Protection

Office 365 Data Loss Prevention and Protection

Office 365 is DLP Lite - very lite

Organizations that have deployed Microsoft Office 365 or looking to deploy Office 365 know that it is equipped with very basic DLP lite capabilities, which only provides a basic set of DLP features and is designed to provide a minimal compliance check box for SMB customers who currently have no DLP controls in place.  

Unfortunately, there are other ways to lose sensitive data which is your responsibility to protect!

Office 365 lacks image analysis (OCR), advanced data fingerprinting and watermarking.  There is significant implantation, on-going management, detection efficacy, technical support and data loss channel coverage limitations making its DLP an ineffective replacement for an Enterprise DLP solution – even if the only channel you care to monitor is outbound email.

If you have the need for accurate detection, in real-time or your organization has complex requirements such as industry and government data protection regulations, looking to protect trade secrets or confidential data then a more robust solution is available.
