Use Data Filtering profiles to prevent sensitive,
confidential, and proprietary information from leaving your network. Predefined
patterns, built-in settings, and customizable options make it easy for you to protect
files that contain certain file properties (such as a document title or author), credit
card numbers, regulated information from different countries (like social security
numbers), and third-party data loss prevention (DLP) labels.
Predefined Data Filtering Patterns
Predefined data filtering patterns serve as predefined sets of rules
and signatures designed to identify and categorize various types of data based
on patterns, content, or metadata. These patterns encompass a wide range of
data, including personally identifiable information (PII), financial data,
healthcare records, intellectual property, and more. By applying these patterns,
your configuration can enforce specific security policy rules based on the
identified data categories.
You can leverage data filtering patterns to meet your unique compliance
requirements and organizational needs.
To comply with standards such as HIPAA, GDPR, and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act,
predefined data patterns are available. You can use these patterns to prevent
common types of sensitive information, like credit cards and social security
numbers, from leaving your network.
