DLP Solution Implementation itself creates new challenges:

· There is a flood of incidents, sometimes, which can end up causing unusual fatigue for a security team, no matter its size.

· Strict SLAs for incident response and closure made even more complicated when collaborating with business stakeholders.

· The disruption is caused to critical business processes or activities as the DLP solution blocks urgent emails.

· Providing due diligence and documentation evidence to ensure compliance and avoid fines from regulators can be a Herculean task.

· Delivering various reports at varying cadences to management and stakeholders can take enormous time/effort from the InfoSec Team.

· It is difficult for stakeholders to recommend edits to DLP policies that affect the business adversely.

These challenges get even more compounded when you have implemented multiple DLPs simultaneously. Multiple DLP’s cause confusion and dissimilar approaches to policy implementation, and organisation response to security incidents is weak


· Automatically prioritises and routes incidents,

· Guides incident review and risk assessment, including reminders and escalations,

· Provides workflow for review/release of quarantined emails,

· Keeps records and files updates in DLP and post-incident reports automatically,

· Provides automatic dashboards and reports, and

· Provides an interface for stakeholder inputs on policy edits,

And it can do so across multiple DLP Solutions simultaneously.

What is more, your users do NOT have to learn to use a single DLP Solution.

Your DLP Implementation is incomplete without DashMagiq™
