2011 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Content-Aware Data Loss Prevention
Since “gartner dlp” is one of the leading search terms at DLP Experts, we’ve decided to provide links to sources for downloading the 2011 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Content-Aware Data Loss Prevention. Please be sure your copy is the most recent given the document was revised to correct some vendor information (for more details see the Gartner Corrections page and the section dated 13 September 2011).
We’ve included more than a single source for access to this report. In fact, we’ve listed each of the Gartner leaders in the 2011 Magic Quadrant for Content-Aware DLP.
Surprisingly, we were unable to find a link from RSA to the Gartner MQ on DLP. We found links to other Gartner Magic Quadrant reports for Web Fraud Detection and SIEM, but nothing but the 2009 and 2010 MQ for DLP.
McAfee provides a brief introduction to the report highlighting the positive feedback from Gartner, just to get your techno-juices flowing. This introduction is followed by a download link where the user must register by completing a brief web form with first/last name, company name, job role and email address.
Verdasys offers access to the Gartner MQ from their Analyst Papers page. From there, either of the two links takes you to a web form which requires first/last name, title, company, phone and email.
Symantec and CA
Both Symantec and CA provide the same direct link to the report (no annoying forms to complete). Since this link goes directly to the Gartner reprint of the article, you can be sure that this version is the most recent.
