Get data loss prevention that protects all your users, all the time

Policies follow users on and off the network to close gaps in your protection

Data loss prevention has become more difficult

Your data is exposed to more risks than ever

Between a lack of awareness, unintentional user actions, system glitches, and increasingly sophisticated malicious activities, you run the risk of your sensitive data being exposed—and that can cause a range of problems, from fines to customer loss, legal ramifications, and damage to your company’s brand.

Cloud Apps have affected your visibility

Applications have moved to the cloud and users have left your network, connecting direct-to-cloud. That creates a significant blind spot, as users bypass gateway security controls, allowing sensitive information to flow out of your network—or when that data is hidden in SSL traffic that you can’t fully inspect.

You are mandated by compliance requirements

Various data protection regulations—PCI, HIPAA, and GDPR—require you to put measures in place that protect sensitive information on your network and prevent it from being exposed to unauthorized parties.

Zscaler Cloud DLP benefits

Identical protection on-network or off

Provide the same level of security to all your users by moving your data security to the cloud. Zscaler sits between your users and the applications they are connecting to. Cloud DLP policy follows users where they work—on- or off-network—and provides the same level of protection to all users at all times.

Full SSL inspection of all traffic

Don’t settle for partial inspection of your traffic. Around 70% of outbound traffic is encrypted and thus not subject to inspection by traditional DLP solutions. With Zscaler, there are no capacity constraints for enabling SSL interception at scale. Zscaler is a proxy by design, performing SSL inspection on all traffic, without the inspection limitations of appliances.

Elastic scale with inline enforcement

Make prevention, not remediation, your number-one priority. Zscaler is architected to sit inline, so it can block sensitive information before it leaves your network—instead of being limited to damage control after data has been compromised. The Zscaler security architecture was built in the cloud from the ground up and the service is user-based, not capacity-based, allowing your Cloud DLP inspection to scale elastically with performance guaranteed by SLAs.

Fully integrated platform service

Roll out DLP in minutes, not months. No architectural changes are needed to implement Cloud DLP because it is part of the Zscaler Security Platform, a fully integrated security stack as a service. Zscaler eliminates redundancies of managing various appliances, reducing the resources needed to stand up and maintain point products.

Zscaler DLP provides target specific users, groups, locations, destinations, and content types with multi-criteria policies

Ensure compliance with granular policy controls

Maximize your data protection even as you maintain compliance with industry mandates, such as HIPAA, as well as data privacy regulations like GDPR. Leveraging an extensive feature set, including EDM, machine learning, file type control, and granular policy that follows the user, Cloud DLP simplifies compliance with regional regulations.

Zscaler real-time reporting drill down into possible DLP incidents

Investigate data loss incidents in real time

Zscaler Cloud DLP allows you to instantly analyze violations and create reports to highlight compliance concerns. With visibility into each DLP violation, you can customize your notification workflow and reporting. Zscaler Nanolog™️ Streaming Service (NSS) allows you to forward logs to a SIEM to integrate with your GRC workflows. You can forward DLP evidence data to third-party DLP solutions via ICAP, send evidence and session metadata to your incident receiver, or forward to an admin email. 

Improve detection accuracy with Exact Data Match (EDM)

Improve detection accuracy with Exact Data Match (EDM)

With Zscaler EDM, you can easily find and control any occurrence of specific data. From employee records to important customer information, EDM lets you fingerprint sensitive data and improve detection accuracy while reducing DLP false positives.

Protect sensitive documents with Zscaler Indexed Document Matching (IDM)

Protect sensitive documents with Indexed Document Matching (IDM)

With Zscaler IDM, you can secure high-value documents that typically carry sensitive data. Fingerprint tax, medical, manufacturing, or other important forms and detect documents that use them across all of your cloud data channels.
