Exact Data Matching

Identify data unique to your organisation

Content Analysis

Deep Analysis and Fingerprinting

With Email DLP, you can accurately detect sensitive data within unstructured content. Over 300 file types can be scanned out of the box. Sensitive documents are fingerprinted—with both full and partial matching capabilities—even if the data resides in different file formats.


Automate Regulatory Compliance

Email DLP automatically looks for all standard forms of restricted content. And it quickly detects sensitive data with its pre-built dictionaries. With its detailed algorithmic checks that are built into smart identifiers, it minimises false positives for credit card numbers, identification numbers and a wide variety of sensitive information. With Email DLP, you can comply with PCI, SOX, GDPR, PII, HIPAA and more.


Get Complete Visibility into Your Data

Email DLP is integrated with Proofpoint Enterprise DLP. This allows you to find, track and safeguard data in email, cloud applications, endpoints, on-premises file shares and SharePoint. And you can easily apply common data detectors across channels. This helps save you time and eliminates administrative headache.
