Why Use Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Software?
Technical safeguards are required by data security and privacy frameworks such as GDPR, HIPAA, SOX, ITAR, and PIPEDA.
A DLP solution is a critical data security measure to protect sensitive data such as PII, PHI, EHRs, and intellectual property from being shared outside the corporate network.
With DLP software insider threat risks can be mitigated by enforcing data security policies that restrict sensitive data from being exfiltrated from the network.
Over 64% of financial services companies have 1,000+ sensitive files open to every employee.1
Without data loss prevention measures 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
Data loss prevention tools offer the insider threat protection features you need to prevent data theft.

DLP Software Frequently Asked Questions
Can I Use Your Data Loss Prevention Software With Remote Workers?
Yes. CurrentWare’s data loss prevention software solutions support a variety of deployment options that allow you to control USB devices, block websites, and monitor user activity no matter where they are.
To learn more about using data loss prevention with remote workers, visit this article:
Are There Any Limits to the Free Trial?
The free trial of our data loss prevention software is fully functional. You can deploy it on up to 10 computers for 14 days. If you need more time or more computers to properly evaluate the best data loss prevention software for your organization, reach out to our support team.
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 cannot access your employee’s computer monitoring data. CurrentWare’s software does not send your user’s computer usage data to CurrentWare. They are installed and managed by your organization.
With CurrentWare’s on-premises & self-managed cloud deployment options, you’re in complete control of your data.
- Sensitive employee data stays secured to your standards rather than being sent to a third party.
- Maintain data localization and residency compliance requirements by keeping employee data exactly where it needs to be.
- Retain auditable records of user activity for as long as you need
For more information please refer to our Terms of Service.
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 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 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 DLP Solution?
CurrentWare has a global client base across a variety of industries including government, healthcare, finance, nonprofit, and manufacturing.
CurrentWare’s customers use our computer monitoring, web filtering, and data loss prevention solutions to protect their business against time theft, data leakage, and web-based threats by monitoring and controlling computer usage.
