A common cause of data leakage is the use of CC rather than BCC in email, exposing hundreds of email addresses that should have been kept confidential. Djigzo DLP can block these types of email messages with one simple rule.

Djigzo Email Encryption Gateway is a standards based, centrally managed open source email encryption server that encrypts and decrypts incoming and outgoing email at the gateway level. Djigzo Email Encryption Gateway is compatible with any existing email infrastructure like Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Notes and has support for S/MIME and PDF encryption.
The new Data Leak Prevention (DLP) module allows organizations to automatically scan all outgoing email for sensitive data. Typically, this includes credit card numbers, bank account numbers, excessive amounts of email addresses and other personal information. If sensitive data is detected, the DLP module can take specific actions depending on the user settings: the email can be blocked or quarantined, or encryption can be enforced.
DLP can be configured at three levels: gateway level, domain level and individual user level. The latter is useful in specific cases in which some users should be able to send out information via email that other users cannot.
A DLP management interface enables proper handling of quarantined messages. Via the DLP management interface, rules can be set for what data needs to be intercepted. Example rules are available for download from the Djigzo web site.
Martijn Brinkers, CEO of Djigzo: “A common cause of data leakage is the use of CC rather than BCC in email, exposing hundreds of email addresses that should have been kept confidential. Djigzo DLP can block these types of email messages with one simple rule. Similarly, simple Djigzo DLP rules can block many types of accidental data leakage.”
Djigzo, based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, provides open source products which allow companies to automatically protect their email against unauthorized access both in transit and at rest. Djigzo Email Encryption Gateway is a centrally managed email server that encrypts and decrypts incoming and outgoing email at the gateway level.
