Data Loss Prevention
Does pfsense support Data Loss Prevention …??
if yes, how do i make it operate on my pfsense. Is there a way to integrate this feature in pfsense?
my pfsense version is 1.2.3. help..!!
It depends on what you mean by Data Loss Prevention.
By data loss prevention i mean
- Fetching data in to a removable drive or optical media.
- Any information sent via email should be restricted.
- Data should be encrypted before transferring through internet.
- Web Filtering: Managing which websites users can access.
Also does pfsense support anti-virus and anti-spam?
So you're talking more about preventing information disclosure, not backups.
"1" In that list isn't really supported. It is possible to have the config located on removable media, but no other data (yet, might change in 2.1 or later, really depends on what "data" you mean)
2 is up to your own firewall rules and MTA. pfSense doesn't touch e-mail contents, it just passes packets.
3 is again really up to you and how your network is designed. No router can just encrypt info before sending it out to the internet. The other end also has to accept an encrypted connection of a given protocol (or have a VPN setup between endpoints). If you want to deny http and only allow https, you can do that with firewall rules. Same goes for other unencrypted versions of protocols (block pop3, allow pop3s, block imap, pass imaps, etc, etc).
- Can be done with the squid and squidguard packages. Search the forums for howtos.
Thanks for replying to my queries.
I experimented with squid and squidgaurd its working a little bit, but need to be configured well for proper functioning.
