Data Loss Prevention in Dr.Web Security Space 12.0 enhanced

December 3, 2018

Doctor Web has expanded the list of trusted applications for its Data Loss Prevention module in Dr.Web Security Space 12.0. Specific application versions have been removed from the list.

You may recall that Dr.Web Security Space 12.0 uses a brand-new approach to data protection. Targeted attacks on corporate and home computers usually involve malware that anti-viruses can't recognise yet. In situations like that, the Data Loss Prevention module may become instrumental in keeping valuable information safe. It controls access to information assets on its protection list. The list is fully customizable. Users can also define the applications that will have full or restricted access to the data being protected.

Please note that the data safety features are powered by Dr.Web's self-protection functionality, which thwarts attackers' attempts to render the anti-virus non-operational.

You can view the list of trusted applications here.

Important! The Data Loss Prevention component is not available on Dr.Web Anti-virus 12.0 for Windows. Because of that, users who still use Windows XP on their computers can't take advantage of this feature. Microsoft discontinued support for that operating system back in 2014.

A reminder from Doctor Web: today an anti-virus alone is not enough to protect a PC. Dr.Web Security Space includes all protection components to keep your Windows safe.
