This article explains how to monitor if sensitive data is being uploaded to cloud storage services, such as DropBox, using Endpoint Security and Control.
Typically, online storage solutions provide a Windows client application and web based applications for uploading and downloading files to and from their service. By blocking the client application with Application Control and using Data Control to monitor files uploaded, you can monitor sensitive data being transferred to online storage solutions.
Applies to the following Sophos product(s) and version(s) Sophos Endpoint Security and Control 10.0
When users upload files with their web browser, the files will be cross referenced with the data control rules. This will ensure any files uploaded to authorized cloud storage solutions will be checked for sensitive data and/or file types.
