Email DLP Notifications to Internal and External Users

You can send email DLP notifications to internal and external users using specific email templates. To enable this feature, contact Skyhigh Security Support.

The following DLP template types are supported for internal and external users. For details on each DLP email template, About Email Templates

Before you send DLP email notifications to internal and external users, make sure that you understand:

  • You are liable for sharing details with external users via email templates. Do not share sensitive information.
  • You can configure the policies and use a different email template for internal and external users:
    • For external users, define the DLP policy with the external domain emails and link it with the email notification template.
    • For internal users, define the DLP policy with the internal domain emails and link it with the email notification template.
  • You can also customize your email template based on your requirements.
