Code42 Product Spotlight: Identify Risk to Data Using Advanced Exfiltration Detection

Product Spotlight: Identify Risk to Data Using Advanced Exfiltration Detection

When it comes to data loss protection, there are fundamental security questions that every organization needs to answer. These include, “Who has access to what files?” and “When and how are those files leaving my organization?”

Code42 Next-Gen Data Loss Protection helps you get answers to these questions in seconds by monitoring and investigating file activity across endpoints and cloud services. And now, Code42 has expanded its investigation capabilities to provide greater visibility into removable media, personal cloud and web browser usage by allowing security analysts to search file activity such as:

  • Files synced to personal cloud services. Code42 monitors files that exist in a folder used for syncing with cloud services, including iCloud, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive.
  • Use of removable media. Code42 monitors file activity on external devices, such as an external drive or memory card.
  • Files read by browsers and apps. Code42 monitors files opened in an app that is commonly used for uploading files, such as a web browser, Slack, FTP client or curl.

Advanced Exfiltration Detection can be applied to proactively monitor risky user activity — such as the use of USBs across an organization — as well as to eliminate blind spots during security investigations. For example, imagine you’ve just learned that a confidential roadmap presentation was accidentally sent to the wrong email distribution list. Sure, it can later be deleted from the email server. But did anyone download it? Has anyone shared it? By using Code42 to perform a quick search of the file name, you can answer those questions in seconds. You’ll not only see which users have downloaded the attachment, but also that one has since saved the file to a personal Dropbox account. With this information in hand, you can quickly take action against this risky data exposure.
