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.
