While they both serve to meet the same goal – preventing sensitive data loss – endpoint DLP and network DLP are very different in terms of how they’re deployed and what levels of control they offer. As a result, both solutions also have different “sweet spots” in which they are more ideal than the other. Understanding these differences is critical to planning your DLP deployment and being able to correctly match DLP capabilities to your business’ data protection requirements.
To help in your DLP decision making process, we’ve developed a short video that covers the main differences between both approaches as well as what kinds of questions security teams should answer in order to choose the right solution:
