Enterprise Data Loss Prevention, Revisited

Digital transformation initiatives have impacted not only IT processes, but also cybersecurity and corporate compliance programs. Central to this transformation is the need to support and secure the use of a diverse portfolio of cloud applications. Enterprises with branch offices have been revisiting network infrastructure to support direct-to-cloud workflows, amplified by the increase in remote work. As employees work from distributed locations, access to a diverse range of applications data flows through egress points and through the edge direct to cloud stores. To protect data assets both in motion and at rest a modern approach to data loss prevention (DLP) designed for today’s digital enterprise is required. This paper explores the challenges associated with protecting data in the cloud era, the requirements of a contemporary solution, and how Palo Alto Network’s Enterprise DLP offering meets these requirements with a cloud-native implementation.
