Symantec announces extensive new cloud offering
Posted on 6-Jun-2015 11:56 | Tags Filed under: News



Available now, (Symantec’s new Data Loss Prevention 14 will give CIOs greater confidence that employees can take advantage of storing information in the cloud without worrying about data loss or theft.

“Symantec Data Loss Prevention is a content-aware security technology that helps companies understand where their sensitive corporate information is being stored, how it’s being used and how to protect it against loss and theft,” said Amit Jasuja, senior vice president, product development at Symantec. “With the latest release, we are extending DLP to cloud email and storage to provide our customers the control and visibility they need to secure their sensitive information as they take full advantage of the cloud. We’ve also announced a new, robust integration with Box, as it’s one of the top requests we’ve seen from our DLP customers.”
  • DLP for Cloud Email: Symantec DLP 14 now supports Microsoft Office 365 for companies who are using it for cloud-based email. For current Symantec DLP customers this means they can now apply the same information protection policies they use on-prem or in the cloud.
  • DLP for Cloud Storage: Symantec DLP for Box gives deep visibility into the sensitive files that businesses collaborate on in Box. Symantec DLP for Box seamlessly integrates with the Box platform to monitor employee accounts, offering deep analysis into what information is considered sensitive, how this information is being used and with whom it’s being shared. Additionally, when sensitive files are detected, Symantec DLP for Box places visual tags on the content and allows users to self-remediate the files directly within Box.

“One of our biggest priorities at Box is keeping our customers' information safe and secure,” said Justin Somaini, chief trust officer, Box. “We worked closely with Symantec, a founding member of our Box Trust ecosystem, to develop Symantec DLP for Box and are happy to bring Symantec’s reliable products to our customers.”

Protection for Personal Cloud File Sync & Share: Symantec DLP 14’s endpoint agent also enables the protection of sensitive information for users of personal Cloud File Sync & Share. Symantec DLP can monitor and prevent users from syncing sensitive work files from their desktop to their personal accounts from cloud services like Box, Microsoft OneDrive, iCloud, Google Drive and Dropbox, and even email services such as Gmail.
