Why Use Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Software?
Data loss prevention software protects sensitive data such as PII, PHI, EHRs, and intellectual property from being shared outside the corporate network.
Without DLP software an organization risks losing the sensitive data of their customers to a trusted insider transferring their information to a USB flash drive. With DLP software these risks can be mitigated by enforcing security policies that restrict sensitive data from being exfiltrated from the network.
Technical safeguards are required by data security and privacy frameworks such as GDPR, HIPAA, SOX, ITAR, and PIPEDA. DLP software provides critical security controls to help meet regulatory compliance requirements.
Over 64% of financial services companies have 1,000+ sensitive files open to every employee.1
Without data loss prevention measure in place, stealing these sensitive files is as simple as a transfer to a USB flash drive.
70% of consumers believe that businesses aren’t doing enough to secure their personal information.2
DLP software protects sensitive personal information by preventing data leakage to key egress points.
63% of employees have brought data from their previous employer to their current employer.3
The best data loss prevention software protects intellectual property against insider data theft.
USB Activity Reports

Will My Employees Know They Are Being Monitored?
As with any CurrentWare Suite product, your organization is in control of how visible the data loss prevention software is.
The CurrentWare software client operates in stealth mode by default.
In stealth mode, the CurrentWare software client is not visible in the system tray or control panel of the user’s computer. Your users will not be able to uninstall the program or stop it without administrator privileges.
If you would like your users to be aware that they are being monitored, you can choose to show the CurrentWare software client in their system tray by enabling it in the client software settings.
AccessPatrol does not disclose when its USB activity monitoring feature is active. When your employees attempt to use an unauthorized USB device they can be presented with an optional warning message.
When BrowseControl blocks a website you can choose to show a warning message, redirect to another website, or simply have the connection fail.
When monitoring user activity with BrowseReporter you can choose to enable the End-User Reports feature to provide users with access to their activity data. You can also display optional notifications that periodically remind them that they are being monitored.
Does CurrentWare Have Access to Employee Data?
No. CurrentWare’s user activity monitoring and data loss prevention solutions do not send your user’s computer usage data to CurrentWare. They are installed and managed by your organization.
All of the data collected by CurrentWare’s software is stored on a database that is installed in your organization’s network or on a virtual machine provided by a cloud service provider of your choice.

What is Data Loss Prevention (DLP)?
Data loss prevention (DLP) is a set of tools and processes that prevent confidential data from being leaked, deleted, or misused.
DLP tools work to detect and prevent sensitive data from leaving the network. To protect the confidentiality and security of data, DLP software stops employees and other end-users from copying sensitive data to unauthorized USB drives.
The security policies defined by DLP software helps to prevent end users from accidentally or maliciously sharing data that could put the organization at risk.
Can I Set Unique Device Restrictions for Different Computers or Users?
Yes. You can assign unique security policies for each computer, user, department, or other organizational unit (OU) in your company.
To do this, CurrentWare’s data loss prevention software allows you to create group folders with separate policies. This feature is perfect for restricting users while providing greater access for trusted administrators.
In terms of device control, you can also use the access code generator to temporarily grant access to all peripherals or use the device scheduler to automatically allow/block devices at specific times.
Can I Block Specific File Types from Being Transferred?
Yes. CurrentWare’s device control and data loss prevention software AccessPatrol has the ability to prevent your end-users from copying specific files to their storage devices. These file transfer restrictions can be configured based on the file name or file extension.
The file transfer blocking feature can also be used on devices that are on the Allowed List. This lets you provide access to company-authorized USB devices while still protecting the sensitive data in your network against exfiltration to portable storage hardware.
Who Uses This Data Loss Prevention Software?
CurrentWare has a global client base across a variety of industries including government, healthcare, finance, nonprofit, and manufacturing.
