Over half of all data losses occur internally, often unintentionally. The transfer of unauthorised data can cause a large amount of damage in this context. Furthermore, data protection laws and industry-specific regulations require that companies safeguard the confidentiality of customer data.
Data Loss Prevention is a service brought to you by the Swisscom I-MARS security concept. It selectively monitors interactions between your employees and suppliers, by email, on the web and on file storage and end devices. It checks the contents of these channels for sensitive data and compares them with a proven set of standard rules. If a breach is detected, a security incident is processed and initiated.
You can select the incident and approval process that best matches your needs. You are provided with a dedicated remediation tool for processing the incident.
The proofs you require are also generated periodically. This gives you the necessary transparency for ensuring compliance with the various regulations and verifying this.
Put a stop to the unauthorised transfer of sensitive data such as intellectual property, and prevent damage to your company's reputation.

Swisscom has developed the I-MARS security concept to supplement basic IT security with the aim of providing transparency, measurability and comprehensive control when it comes to protecting sensitive data.
I-MARS stands for Initialise, Monitor, Alert, Report and Secure:
Identify and make an inventory of objects you want to protect
Log user activities (who, when, what, where) Log data is archived in a central log repository
Analyse, document and report breaches of the defined standard
Prepare reports and evaluations
Log the flow of data; assign defined actions
The I-MARS security concept is deployed using our Audit Guard and Data Loss Prevention services. We also use these services at Swisscom to handle our sensitive data.
