Learn about how proximity keywords reduce false positives
on SaaS Security API.
Keywords reduce false positives and improve
detection accuracy on SaaS Security API. DLP (Data Loss Prevention)
can scan content based on the proximity of keywords that you specify
(proximity analysis) when you create a custom data
pattern. SaaS Security with Enterprise DLP Add–on supports
proximity analysis for both predefned data
patterns and custom data patterns.
With SaaS Security
DLP (Classic), proximity analysis is supported for predefined data
An asset is assigned a higher detection
accuracy probability when:
—Keyword is within a 200-byte distance
of the expression. If a document has a 16‑digit number immediately
, that's more likely to
be a credit card number. But if
title of the text and the 16-digit number is on the last page of the
22-page document, that's less likely to be a credit card number.
—More than one keyword in your keyword
group appears within 200‑bytes of the expression.
