Data Loss Discovery Driven by Deep File Inspection (DFI®)

The purpose of this whitepaper is to describe the capabilities provided by the InQuest® platform related to identifying the exposure of sensitive information. With the recent explosion of data breach reports in the news, preventing the loss of sensitive data has become an area of focus for many organizations. If an attacker gains access to a protected network and begins exfiltrating sensitive information, the longer the breach goes undetected, the higher the damage to the organization. To evade detection of data exfiltration, hackers commonly obfuscate and embed stolen data within benign files and encrypted network flows. It is essential that data leakage is detected as soon as possible to minimize financial, reputational, intellectual property damage, and exposure.
