Creating DLP Rules

Top  Previous  Next

DLP rules are regular expressions that are used in identifying sensitive data at rest.  MFT Server has a number of built-in rules that may be used to identify sensitive data at rest such as credit card numbers (Visa, MasterCard, Amex, Discover) , U.S. social security numbers, UK national insurance numbers and IBAN account numbers.


To create a DLP rule go to the DLP module in MFT Server Manager.  Here you will find a list of currently available DLP rules.
