  • Downloading of Documents: DLP in the cloud solution allows to set policy on downloading of the document. It means whenever someone tries to download a document stored on Google Drive, and it can easily be tracked or controlled. 
  • Deletion of Document: If someone deletes any document stored on Google Drive, then this policy keeps a complete record of it. For example, who has deleted the document and which document is deleted. 
  • Sharing Outside the Organization: Sharing of any document outside the organization can easily be handled by setting such policies. Moreover, the DLP solution by cloudcodes is capable of revoking the external access also. 
  • Taking Screenshots: An organization can set a policy also to restrict users from taking screenshots. No one is allowed to take a screenshot of the work going on in a particular system. 

It also permits the organization to define actions, which is to be taken when such type of violations are detected. For ex , if it is found that a document is shared outside the organization, the IT can define policies to revoke the external access.
