CompTIA Security+ Question G-59

Which of the following assets is MOST likely considered for DLP?

A. Application server content
B. USB mass storage devices
C. Reverse proxy
D. Print server

Answer: B

Data loss prevention (DLP) systems monitor the contents of systems (workstations, servers, and networks) to make sure that key content is not deleted or removed. They also monitor who is using the data (looking for unauthorized access) and transmitting the data. A USB presents the most likely device to be used to steal data because of its physical size.
