Predefined Data Filtering Patterns

Use predefined data patterns to keep sensitive information secure.
To comply with standards such as HIPAA, GDPR, and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, the firewall provides predefined data patterns. You can use these patterns to prevent common types of sensitive information, like credit cards and social security numbers, from leaving your network.
You can find predefined data patterns by selecting
Objects > Custom Objects > Data Patterns
and clicking
Add
a new object. Then, set the
Pattern Type
to
Predefined Pattern
and
Add
a new rule to the data pattern object. Select a data pattern from the list that appears under
