CA DLP Tuesday Tip by Andrew Devine, Snr. Support Engineer for 13 September 2011

The Content Registration feature in CA DLP, also known as fingerprinting, enables you to take 'fingerprints' of sensitive documents that you want to protect. In effect, you can register the content of these documents so that they can be quickly recognized if a user tries to copy or send them or when CA DLP runs a file scan. CA DLP can then apply appropriate policy controls.

These fingerprints represent unique document signatures and are made available to CA DLP policy engines and endpoint agents. When CA DLP analyzes a file, it can quickly determine whether the file matches a known fingerprint and apply policy controls to that file. For example, it can block a fingerprinted document from being sent as an email attachment or copied to a USB device. It can even detect if a document or email contains sections of text copied from a protected file.

For more information on Content Registration please refer to the Content Registration section of the CA DLP r12.5 Deployment Guide
