Identify sensitive information across many locations.
For example, you can identify any document containing a credit card number that’s stored in any Business site, or you can monitor just the sites of specific people.
Prevent the accidental sharing of sensitive information.
For example, you can identify any document or email containing a health record that’s shared with people outside your organization, and then automatically block access to that document or block the email from being sent.
Help users learn how to stay compliant without interrupting their workflow.
You can educate your users about DLP policies and help them remain compliant without blocking their work. For example, if a user tries to share a document containing sensitive information, a DLP policy can both send them an email notification and show them a policy tip in the context of the document library that allows them to override the policy if they have a business justification.
