The Risks of Your Cloud Collaborations

New tools are creating new, unexpected risks. DLP can help.

The use of cloud-based tools in software development continues to increase.  So do the risks of data leakage from these tools.  API keys, passwords and digital certificates have all been lost.  And each new tool that is introduced to software development creates new forms of risk. The use of ChatGPT in software development is just one example.  

 The adoption of these tools will, and no doubt should grow. But it's crucial to acknowledge that the problem will persist and to address it.  In response to these evolving threats, Symantec DLP emerges as a robust solution for protection. 

Be Smart - Protect code against collaboration mishaps

With Symantec DLP, customers can access available protection against accidental data loss of source code and access tokens. DLP enhanced existing capabilities and added new out-of-the-box data identifiers to detect SaaS / IaaS application API keys and secrets, access tokens, database connection strings, and private keys for certificates. 

We are committed to the constant addition of  protection capabilities to identify PII and Source code.  One example of how Symantec is able to quickly bring meaningful innovation in the DLP space is DLP Innovation Labs. Through this we can give customers access to pre-released detection capabilities in order to test it against real world scenarios.

This is one of the main features available in DLP 16.0.1 (RU).  For more information, refer to What's New in DLP 16.0.1
