Configure Data Patterns (Basic DLP)

Learn about the three types of data patterns available on Prisma SaaS—predefined, custom, and file property.
Prisma SaaS offers the following data pattern types:
  • data patterns—the service automatically activates after a scan to match on keywords, which you can modify, and pre-tested strings.
    Prisma SaaS includes several predefined data patterns that automatically begin scanning content and detecting incidents as soon as you Add Cloud Apps to Prisma SaaS. Predefined data patterns are grouped into six categories by content type:

  • data patterns—you create from scratch to match on keywords and strings of text, such as particular characters, words, or patterns of characters and make it possible to find all instances of text that match a certain pattern, or return a value if the pattern is not found.
  • data patterns—you create from scratch to match on file metadata.
    If you assign classification tags or labels as metadata to files, with the file property data pattern you can specify any custom or extended file property as a name-value pair to match in policy rules.
After you’re familiar with the predefined data patterns and how they work, you can modify the predefined data patterns as desired or define your own new data pattern. You can then view and filter incidents to determine if the matched content to your configured data patterns poses a risk to your organization.
