ABBYY Recognition Server
for Symantec DLP

24/7 control over image and text content
to prevent data leaks.

Most types of data that have a high potential of data leaks – images and electronic files containing pictures – have always been difficult to monitor for organizations with moderate to high document flow. This becomes critical when we talk about sensitive data protection, but not now for Symantec customers. The integration of ABBYY Recognition Server with Symantec Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solves this problem.
