Overview

Data loss occurs when confidential or private information leaves the enterprise as a result of unauthorized communication through channels such as applications, physical devices, or network protocols.

McAfee® Data Loss Prevention (McAfee DLP) is a suite of products that protects against data loss by identifying and securing data within your network and offline. McAfee DLP policies help you understand the types of data on your network, how the data is accessed and transmitted, and if the data contains sensitive or confidential information. Use McAfee DLP to build and implement effective protection policies while reducing the need for extensive trial and error.

Each of this McAfee DLP product protects different types of data in your network.

  • McAfee® Data Loss Prevention Endpoint for Mac (McAfee DLP Endpoint for Mac) — Offers similar protection for Macintosh computers running macOS operating systems.
