DLP ‘important for cloud systems’

Data loss prevention (DLP) protocols must be successfully integrated into the use of cloud network infrastructure, a sector expert has claimed.

Willy Leichter, senior director at CipherCloud, told CBR Online: “Every organisation has data it needs to protect … When using cloud technology, you need to take control of it through an effective cloud DLP solution.”

These include automated policy-based enforcement for swift data recovery in the event of an emergency.

This technique requires widespread integration of data protection protocols in cloud servers and means that businesses are less likely to expose files to a risk of accidental publication or for unauthorised individuals to gain access to them.

Automation and taking the responsibility for accreditation for access out of human hands as much as possible should be the goal here, as this ensures data breaches can be kept to a minimum as a result of individual error.

Effective integration of cloud and data protection policies is therefore required if businesses wish to safeguard their sensitive information in the modern cloud network.

When looking for data recovery services, look for one with a track record of success. Ontrack Data Recovery services has 40,000 data recovery stories to tell every year.
