Configuring Data Leakage Prevention

Note
Data Leakage Prevention is not supported for Endpoint Web Control.

The Configuration > Global Policy > Data Leakage Prevention page allows appliance administrators to enable or disable posting capabilities for their users on select webmail sites, and on sites categorized as Blogs & Forums.

When your users attempt to send a webmail message or post a message to a blog, and you have data leakage prevention enabled, they could very likely see an error message generated by the webmail or blogging site rather than a notification page from the Web Appliance itself.
