The servers deploy a comprehensive security framework provided by SkyConnect. This ensures that nobody can access the data (configuration or mail data) without authentication and authorization and only through access protocols. The weak link in the data access is the password, which can be kept strong and current with password policies in SkyConnect (Minimum password length, password complexity, and password expiry).

Other aspects are inadvertent data leakage like
- Sending confidential information to personal email ids.
- This can be prevented by deploying strong mail policies and disallowing transmission to specific email ids or domains
- Human error while composing mail and typing the wrong id (auto complete without reviewing the email id before sending, is a common cause of this error)
- Abuse of System access and privileges
For effective DLP (Data Loss Prevention), a healthy combination of technology, process and policy must be in place.
