Enable Optical Character Recognition for Enterprise DLP

Enable optical character recognition (OCR) to scan images for sensitive information with
Enterprise data loss prevention (DLP)
Strengthen your security posture to prevent accidental data misuse, loss, or theft by enabling optical character recognition (OCR) for
Enterprise data loss prevention (DLP)
on the Panorama™ management server for Panorama and Prisma Access (Panorama Managed). Enabling OCR allows the DLP cloud service to scan files with images containing sensitive information that match your
Enterprise DLP
data profiles.
The DLP cloud service supports scanning the following image file types:
  • .jpg, .jpeg, .png, .tif, .tiff
The DLP cloud service supports scanning of images present in the following file types for OCR.
  • PDF, PPT(X), DOC(X)
OCR isn’t supported for Microsoft Visio XML drawing (.vdx) files that need to be rendered in order to display. For example, OCR can’t inspect a .vdx file if the XML is the drawing representation.
  1. If you haven’t already, Configure Enterprise DLP.
  2. Log in to the DLP app on the hub.
    If you don’t already have access to the DLP app on the hub, see the hub Getting Started Guide. Only Superusers can access the hub.
    Access to evidence storage settings and files on the hub is allowed only for an account administrator or app administrator roles with a valid
    Enterprise DLP
    license associated with that support account. This is to ensure that only the appropriate users have access to report data and evidence.
  3. Select
    Detection Methods
    Optical Character Recognition
    and enable
    Optical Character Recognition
    OCR is disabled by default. Manually enable OCR in order for the DLP cloud service to scan images and documents containing images for sensitive information.
