Why should businesses have Google Chrome Extension DLP?

Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solutions are tools that are designed to detect potential data breach or exfiltration transmissions, and prevent them by monitoring, detecting, and blocking sensitive data while it is in-use (endpoint actions), in-motion (network traffic), and at-rest (data storage). With regards to browser extensions, they primarily help in the in-use and in-motion aspects.

Here are some key reasons why businesses should have a DLP solution on their browsers:

  1. Monitor and Control Web-Based Data Transfer: A lot of data exchange today happens via web-based applications like email, cloud storage, or collaboration platforms. A DLP browser extension can monitor these exchanges and prevent unauthorized transfer of sensitive information.
  2. Ensure Compliance: For businesses operating in regulated industries such as healthcare, finance, and others, ensuring compliance with data protection laws is paramount. DLP solutions can help maintain compliance by enforcing data security policies across all web browsing activities.
  3. Prevent Accidental Data Leaks: Even well-intentioned employees can make mistakes and accidentally send sensitive data to the wrong recipient. With a DLP browser extension, rules can be set to scan for such sensitive data and prevent it from being sent.
  4. Protect Against Insider Threats: Not all data leaks are accidental. Sometimes, they can be the result of a malicious insider trying to steal data. A DLP solution can help detect unusual patterns of data access or transfer, and stop them.
  5. Visibility and Reporting: DLP solutions often provide reporting features, allowing businesses to monitor all data transactions, identify trends, and even pinpoint potential areas of vulnerability.
  6. Uniform Policy Application: A DLP solution can ensure that policies related to data usage and transfer are uniformly applied across all the devices in an organization, regardless of the location of the user.
  7. Browser-Based Threat Protection: With the increasing number of browser-based threats, such as phishing and malware, a DLP solution can also provide an additional layer of security.

How Strac Chrome Extension DLP protects businesses from security and compliance risks?

  1. Website Monitoring: Strac oversees activities on specified websites where the extension is activated. It continuously monitors these platforms to ensure that the information exchange remains secure and within company policy.
  2. Shadow IT: Strac can detect which unsanctioned SaaS apps the user is visiting, how much are they using, what information is being submitted to those SaaS apps
  3. Prevent Transmission of Sensitive Data: Strac safeguards against unauthorized sharing or leakage of sensitive data. Strac identifies and blocks the transmission of sensitive information types like Personally Identifiable Information (PII), Payment Card Industry (PCI) data, and Protected Health Information (PHI) when users attempt to submit such data over website forms or similar communication methods.
  4. Awareness for End Users: Strac has WARN and AUDIT modes which educate end users if they are submitting sensitive data over email or other websites like ChatGPT, Google Gemini, Jira, Zendesk etc.
  5. Insightful Reporting for Administrators: Strac provides an in-depth audit trail, along with timely alerts to system administrators. This feature ensures that admins are kept in the loop regarding any attempted data transmissions involving sensitive information. This reporting mechanism includes details on what sensitive data was involved, who attempted to transmit it, and the context of the interaction. This comprehensive visibility aids in enforcing security controls more effectively and contributes to the overall cybersecurity posture of the organization.
