Configuring copy prevention policies
DataSecurity Plus offers copy prevention policies that can be applied to individual workstations or groups. Copy prevention policies are active responses that can help stop data leaks or prevent any other unauthorized activities. DataSecurity Plus' file copy prevention policy prevents users from copying sensitive or business-critical files.
Steps to create a new file copy prevention policy:
- From the top pane, select Endpoint and go to Configuration.
- Choose File Copy Policy from the Prevention Policies drop-down menu.
- Click + Create File Copy policy on the top-right corner.
- In the Add New Policy page that opens, provide a suitable policy name and description.
- Choose the type of response suitable for Local Copy and Network Copy files. The following responses are supported:
- Allow: The copy action is allowed.
- Block: The copy action is not allowed. A custom message, such as a notification to inform the user that the action has been blocked, can be entered in the textbox provided.
- Prompt User: This response is used to educate the user about the copy action. A custom message can be displayed to the user, and the user can choose to continue or cancel the copy action.
- Local Copy: Files that are copied from the local system or any external storage devices connected to it.
- Network Copy: Files copy actions that take place within the network.
- If you wish to audit file copy events, choose Enable. If not, choose Disable from the Auditing drop-down menu.
- Click Save to create the prevention policy.
Best practice: We recommend first enabling auditing to monitor the amount of file copy actions carried out in your organization before choosing Block as your response strategy.
