I am curious if it is possible to use IDP to block outbound traffic containing sensitive information? For example, can I block someone from sending out a file that has a specific type of information contained within it? Like a string of numbers? I know its supposed to do deep packet inspection (DPI) but I was wondering if this more granular method was possible.
Thank you for your reply Suraj. So for my purposes if I wanted to block a string of numbers like an IP address or a social security number, something that by itself is very unique, how would I go about doing that since the IP address or ssn would be unique while my match criteria would have to be a bit more general?
For example, an SSN looks like this - 123-45-6789 - could I just match on something that looks for these types of numbers separated by dashes in this fashion? Could my match criteria be "xxx-xx-xxxx" ?
