Data Loss Prevention Network Monitor

Issue/Introduction

No incidents are detected when a keyword that is present in a web page.

Resolution

Network Monitor does capture the HTTP GET request itself, which contains the URL that the browser is loading, however, it does not capture the response, which contains the content of the Web page. 

This means that the DLP Network Monitor will not detect content that is present in an external Web page when it is loaded by the browser. This would normally be accomplished with a web content filtering solution not a data loss prevention product.
