Anchor vs Data Loss Prevention

Choose protection that doesn’t get in the way of doing business

Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Is Broken

This is why - and how to fix it

Attack surfaces are growing exponentially, and cyber attacks are more frequent. Data loss prevention (DLP) tries to overcome this exposure by locking down networks, devices, and people to restrict access to sensitive data fIles. But DLP is complex, doesn’t protect all fIle types, and once fIles are moved, shared, or stolen, they are no longer protected. Plus, DLP security controls get in the way of work, fueling user complaints and workarounds that force IT to dial back protection.

So…is DLP really working?

There is an (easier) answer. The Anchor SaaS Platform is a more secure, frictionless way to safeguard all of your data – regardless of file type.

Flip the Script on DLP Challenges

Fast and Simple to Implement
Complex and costly, DLP programs also take a long time to implement. Anchor reduces months and years to minutes. No complex processes, no integrations, and no monitoring required. Choose what to protect, pick who gets access, and select how it’s accessed.
Transparent and Frictionless for Users

Training is required for DLP users since the security policies that protect the data change how users access,
interact with, and share it. Anchor is invisible to users (like antivirus software) and protects all file types. Users can access and share files freely and securely. No training needed.

Super Affordable, Super Scalable

Outsourced or in-house, DLP project cost and resource
requirements can be significant before and after
implementation. With Anchor, cost, time, and resource commitments are minimal. Protection scales easily as needs change. And files stay protected, even as your business and infrastructure change.

Protects All Data File Types in All States

Until DLP acts on it, data is unprotected and vulnerable. And if DLP fails, data is leaked as plaintext, not ciphertext. Anchor’s persistent, transparent encryption protects all data file types in transit, in use, and at rest. Continuous multi-factor access controls ensure only authorized use and enable instant revocation.

Why Choose Anchor Over DLP

Don’t Just Take Our Word For It

35% of large DLP implementations fail. It's time for a change.

Conventional DLP aren’t really working to protect data efficiently and effectively. They focus on locking down networks, devices, and people. Once files are moved, shared, or stolen, the data is no longer protected.
