Described Content Matching looks for matches on regular expressions or patterns, e.g., “block if we see a credit card pattern”

Exact Data Matching identifies sensitive data directly in your database, e.g., “block exfiltration of any customer name and their associated bank account number”

Indexed Document Matching applies a “full file fingerprint” to identify confidential information in unstructured data including Microsoft Office documents; PDF files; as well as binary files such as JPEGs, CAD designs, and multimedia files

Vector Machine Learning automatically learns and identifies the layout of sensitive document types such as financial documents, source code, etc.
