Managed File Transfer: When Data Loss Prevention is Not Enough Moving Beyond Stopping Leaks and Protecting Email
Data Loss Prevention (DLP) monitoring products have greatly reduced the tidal wave of sensitive information flowing out of organizations. They inspect data-in-motion and identify network traffic that needs protection. With a little incremental effort, they can integrate with secure email tools to protect email messages and attachments containing sensitive information. If user have a DLP implementation in place or are considering one shortly, their data-in-motion should be safe, right? Not exactly.

Their content-aware DLP product can inspect and filter the flood of outbound traffic that their employees generate every day.
