How would you describe the growth of the DLP Solutions in the covid period? As you also deal in the health sector.

Due to the pandemic, industries such as health that have stricter data protection requirements have long opposed remote work. However, due to recent developments, many have to rethink their previous stance and allow their employees to work from home. The healthcare sector is among the worst affected by data breaches globally. Healthcare institutions are often prime targets for cyber attacks by collecting extremely sensitive – and therefore very valuable – data and storing it on at times outdated systems. It is essential for healthcare institutions to ensure that health data will be protected even when it is taken outside the security of company networks. DLP solutions implemented at the computer level continue to work whether a computer is connected to a healthcare institution’s network or the internet. In this way, healthcare data protection is uninterrupted.
