The intent and purpose of the File fingerprinting feature is to identify potentially sensitive information in the form of files within the organization and collect fingerprints on them that will help in detecting data leakage violations during content analysis.

An example for partial text fingerprint detection would include the cases of identifying portions of sensitive information that is interspersed within an email leaving an organization and an example for binary fingerprint detection would include detecting someone who tries to publicize an organization’s next generation design diagram or an executable to the outside world.
