Zecurion Offers Flexible Rules and Data Discovery Tool to Boost DLP Outcomes

Zecurion DLP offers a robust set of features, including optical-character and voice analysis (for images and recordings, respectively), but equally attention-grabbing is the level of granularity that can be applied to Zecurion’s rules configuration.

The Zecurion platform comes preloaded with the kinds of things you expect like predefined setups to assist with compliance-related DLP needs – such as HIPAA, PCI DSS, and GDPR – and a flexible rules creation/customization process, which allows you to account for any exceptions or special cases where the standard rule won’t do.

Zecurion also has some features you might not expect, like a data discovery tool to help you find sensitive data that has been improperly stored and block its transmission. The combination of this discovery tool with the rules flexibility is something seems to set Zecurion apart from other DLP solutions.

This is because this combination of sensitive data discovery and transmission block, and flexible rules, helps users with one of the biggest challenges for getting a successful DLP program up and running: data classification.

Zecurion does not eliminate the need for data classification, but it does give users an edge. The ability to find misplaced sensitive data and then have flexible rules for how to deal with it could be used as a stopgap solution while a proper (and manual) data classification initiative is still in the works.

Our Take

Data classification should be the bedrock of any data loss-prevention program because it provides a simple and effective basis for creating data handling rules. That is, metatag applied to the data indicates what can and cannot be done with it, so the rules-creation process simply captures what was already decided during classification.

However, Zecurion’s rules-creation flexibility and data discovery capabilities could help organizations that do not yet have a full classification process in place. In most cases, this would entail creating rules around individual data types rather than classification levels, meaning that such rules may become rather complicated.

Yet this is certainly better than no rules at all, making Zecurion is a worthwhile option for organizations that need to implement a DLP solution immediately.
