Companies are complex entities that create, modify, store, and move vast amounts of data every day. Data leakage, including data loss and theft, has emerged as one of the biggest hurdles in the enterprise today.
This paper will discuss the issues surrounding the protection of key corporate assets such as intellectual property, protected trade secrets, customer information, and regulated content. There are four major threat vectors: theft by outsiders, malicious sabotage by insiders, inadvertent misuse by authorized users, and mistakes created by substandard policies. We will demonstrate how a comprehensive gateway security infrastructure will help enterprises prevent data leakage from all four threats.
