This is the main reason why GAT Labs has taken a different approach to DLP, rather than try to catch every share, our Shield product watches for every document open.
That way it does not matter if the document is shared out or in, when the document is open, we read it for sensitive content which we can flag immediately. We can’t block the share, because the document is owned by another domain, but we can at least alert the Sys Admin, the Security Officer and the user to the danger.
We also watch in real-time for what the user types or copies and pastes. This extends the power of our DLP beyond just Google Docs and even beyond G Suite itself. We are watching every browser page, from Facebook to fake bank sites looking for sensitive content as it is typed.
In addition once we detect sensitive content, in most cases we can close the tab before the data is even submitted, meaning this content never leaves the user device or the organization environment.
With GAT Shield we move your DLP coverage from 10% to 90% For the most comprehensive G Suite security we recommend a mix of tools, including GAT+, Chrome only browsers and GAT Shield. Real smart – real-time.
