Data Protection

A new way to keep data safe

With intuitive capabilities to discover and protect sensitive content, Material Data Protection is the modern approach to DLP that creates minimal operational hassle and keeps users productive.

Identify and track sensitive content

Get ahead of data loss, reputational damage, and compliance concerns. Material continuously detects sensitive data in mailboxes and gives powerful insights into who has it, where it went, and how to manage it.

We needed better visibility into sensitive content in the inbox: I had a guess at what was coming through. The data provided by Material proved my concerns were valid.

Case Study

Unprecedented protection.

Powered by a familiar workflow.

Leverage your existing identity or MFA provider to keep sensitive content safe. Material redacts sensitive content at rest—keeping it secure even if an account is compromised. Users can still retrieve messages whenever they need them after a simple verification step.



Material rewrites sensitive messages in user mailboxes to remove sensitive content and attachments.



Users request access to sensitive messages on-demand by authenticating with an existing identity provider or verification workflow.



After verification, Material restores messages directly to the user's mailbox. Unlocking works across all devices and mail apps without any per-user installs.

Move past legacy data security

Skip the security theater

Blocking emails doesn't stop someone from stealing data via other means. Unlike traditional DLP products, Material protects sensitive content at rest—so you don't have to worry about all the different ways someone could exfiltrate it.

Get unlimited retention without unlimited risk

You shouldn't have to choose between security and productivity. Material redacts archived sensitive content so you can set longer email retention policies without increasing the risk of data loss.

Reduce alert fatigue

Traditional DLP alerts are rarely actionable and create unnecessary busywork. Material replaces alerts with a secure end-user workflow powered by your existing identity provider.

Protecting accounts at organizations of all shapes and sizes
