What if everyone has an access to any company’s data? Its value will be lost as well as your monopoly on it. Everyone could use it in order to enhance their product. Moreover, some bits of information could damage company’s reputation. Every CEO understands that data have to be safeguarded. Leaks happen both accidently and purposely, that is why there has to be a way to prevent them. One of such ways is to set up DLP-system (Data Leak Prevention).
How much profit do you lose on the fact that your employees divulge confidential information about your company? How many of them store sensitive documents in cloud storage or on insecure USB sticks? No one is safe from errors, but DLP systems exist to prevent them.
