Why All Businesses Should Adopt a Cloud Data Loss Prevent System

This article explores the importance of Data Loss Prevention (DLP) systems for businesses and introduces Alibaba Cloud's Sensitive Data Discovery and Protection (SDDP) service.

As a vital organizational asset, the cloud is a super flexible platform that offers many benefits such as scalability, lower IT costs, business continuity and security. While many organizations utilize an on-premises Data Loss Prevention (DLP) system to manage and protect their critical data, some overlook the need to mirror the same tool in the cloud.

What is a Data Loss Prevention (DLP) System?

A Data Loss Prevention (DLP) system helps an organization to detect and prevent critical data loss due to accidental or internal malpractice when data is at rest, in motion and in transit.

Forbes magazine reports that 83% of enterprise workloads will be in the cloud by 2020, so a Cloud DLP must be to prevent the loss of critical data. Cloud DLP products like SDDP (Sensitive Data Discovery and Protection) can be configured by rules and policies that define risky characteristics such as unintentional data leaks, internal data abuse or unauthorized exposure of critical data in the cloud.

About Sensitive Data Discovery and Protection (SDDP)

SDDP is an Alibaba Cloud security service that discovers, categorizes, and protects sensitive data on the cloud.

The service automatically analyzes sensitive data usage stored by customers within massive amounts of data, and provides early warning for suspicious data access, which helps users prevent data breaches, and meet compliance requirements such as GDPR.

Visualization

SDDP visualizes sensitive data identification results, so that corporate data security can be seen at a glance. SDDP provides dynamic data asset display, and supports one-click retrieval of sensitive data from massive data.

Intelligent

SDDP uses big data and machine learning to intelligently identify and monitor sensitive data and high-risk activities, such as abnormal data access and potential leakage risks. If detected, it provides repair recommendations via intelligent algorithms.

Cloud Native

SDDP takes full advantage of cloud-native advantages, endogenously integrates various data sources, and provides integrated data protection and defense mechanisms. It supports the most common cloud database and non-database data storage services: Public cloud versions include Object Storage Service (OSS), Relational Database Service (RDS), and Big Data Services (MaxCompute).
