New Data Protection for Email is here

As more customers move to cloud-based solutions for email and web, flexible data protection capabilities become critical. To address this, Symantec has upgraded the Content Control add-on for Email to better protect confidential information and intellectual property.  This new service, Data Protection, launches August 11th, 2014.

Data Protection includes an improved policy configuration engine and compliance and regulatory-focused templates to easily create and enforce data protection policies. Enhanced reporting and content matching let administrators see when policies are violated.  Policy resources, such as content keyword and regular expression lists, can be shared with the Web Data Protection service to apply rules consistently across email and web.

Employee email is more productive with acceptable use policies that protect against data loss and protect employees from inappropriate content. Data Protection analyzes multiple email components, including the email body, subject, headers, and attachments. Content that matches Administrator created rules is then subject to a range of actions, while approved messages pass through to their intended recipients.

Data Protection is a free upgrade for existing Content Control customers and is part of the Email Safeguard bundle for Email To learn more about Email, visit
