Due to increasing privacy requirements, it is important for organizations to be able to monitor neglectful or malicious activity that can result in the loss of confidential data. The data leak or loss can occur at end points due to user actions, during transit, or while at rest. Data at rest leak prevention relies on encryption technologies and physical security of media, whereas endpoint leak prevention refers to the ability to prevent data leak from an application's end point (e.g. the recipient of a data transfer).

Data leak prevention (DLP) is a FileCloud feature that enables administrators to closely control the degree to which users can access, edit, download, and transfer their organization’s files and folders. While DLP can be useful for many different kinds of data, it can be especially critical for the secure handling of Personal Identification Information (PII), Personal Health Information (PHI), and Payment Card Information (PCI). DLP also offers greater security to organizations
that are required to operate in compliance with HIPAA 
or GDPR.

Smart Classification works in conjunction with DLP to streamline, automate, and strengthen data security.
