Exchange 2013 data loss prevention (Exchange 2013 DLP)

Exchange 2013 data loss prevention is a  feature in Exchange Server 2013 that allows administrators to manually enforce message content rules within their Exchange 2013 organization.

Exchange 2013 DLP uses message templates to block or filter sensitive data that is found in most enterprise IT environments. By controlling what flows in and out of an Exchange 2013 organization, an administrator can meet business rules for privacy and compliance.

Administrators can use existing DLP message policy templates, build on top of existing templates and create templates from scratch with tools in the Exchange Administration Center. Templates may be tested without being placed into production to test policy templates without affecting mail flow.
