Posted by | No Tags | Data Loss Prevention · DLP Industry · DLP Outlook · DLP Products · DLP Technologies · DLP Vendors · Gartner | No Comments on DLP Product Guide for RSA Conference Expo 2011

With Gartner estimating the Data Loss Prevention (DLP) market to reach $400 million in 2011[1] and with adoption of DLP technologies moving quickly down to the small to medium enterprise, DLP is no longer an unknown quantity.  In spite of this progress, DLP remains a market shrouded by confusion over everything from the definition of […]

DLP Myth #6: The “perfect” DLP solution exists

Posted by | No Tags | Analysts · Code Green Networks · Data Loss Prevention · DLP Industry · DLP Outlook · DLP Process · DLP Products · DLP Technologies · DLP Vendors · Fidelis · Gartner · GTB Technologies · RSA · Symantec | No Comments on DLP Myth #6: The “perfect” DLP solution exists

Again, I’ll take some heat from a number of vendors because of this post, but it’s something I’ve said before and DLP buyers need to be aware of it.  In the past, I’ve spoken of the “perfect” DLP solution, but it’s unfair of me to use that word.  So, I’ll retract the word “perfect” and […]

Employees Are More Apt to Take Company Data than a Stapler

Posted by | No Tags | Data Loss Prevention · DLP Industry | No Comments on Employees Are More Apt to Take Company Data than a Stapler

The title of this post is taken from the headline of a press release from SailPoint as reported in NetworkWorld.  While it is a great headline, more importantly it should tell us that no organization’s data is safe, especially for those laying off employees.  For me the takeaway from SailPoint’s survey is that companies should […]

Posted by | No Tags | DLP Industry · DLP Products · DLP Technologies · DLP Vendors · Pattern Matching · Regular Expression | No Comments on DLP Myth #2: DLP is Architecturally Complex

A common misconception is that DLP must always be architecturally complex.  This myth has roots in reality; traditional DLP technologies have been architecturally complex.  However, as DLP technologies evolve, there is a move toward greater architectural simplicity. To understand how we go to the architectural complexity, consider the origins of data loss prevention:  built for […]

DLP Myth #1: You can get DLP as an add-on to an existing solution.

Posted by | No Tags | DLP False Positives · DLP Industry · DLP Outlook · DLP Products · DLP Technologies · DLP Vendors · Pattern Matching · Regular Expression | No Comments on DLP Myth #1: You can get DLP as an add-on to an existing solution.

I read a blog post today from Midwest IT Professional entitled Myths of Data Loss Prevention (DLP).  The post didn’t really address the kind of thing I consider to be myths about DLP, but it did get my thought process going.  So, over the coming days, I’ll present a series of myths related to Data […]

Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Interest Increasing

Posted by | No Tags | DLP Industry · DLP Outlook · DLP Products · DLP Vendors | No Comments on Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Interest Increasing

I’ve been hearing about how data loss prevention (DLP) would someday explode on the security scene since I first heard a security analyst claim that 2007 would be the “year of DLP.”  Then I heard the same analyst claim that 2008 would be the “year of DLP.”  The economy single-handedly proved that wasn’t going to […]

Yet Another DLP Player

Posted by | No Tags | DLP Industry · DLP Products · DLP Vendors · Lumension · RSA | No Comments on Yet Another DLP Player

For a number of years, Lumension has skirted the DLP space with its device control capabilities.  In fact, it’s been a number of years since the company first started touting the “DLP” capabilities of its device control product (SecureWave acquisition).  Well, now Lumension is ready to really move into DLP with the recent announcement of […]

Where to Find Credible Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Information?

Posted by | No Tags | DLP Industry · DLP Vendors | No Comments on Where to Find Credible Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Information?

Do a simple Google search for “data loss prevention” and try to find information that’s not provided by DLP vendors themselves or the analysts on their payroll.  Besides a Wikipedia entry on the subject, you’ll be hard-pressed to find any open and unbiased discussions on the subject of DLP. This makes it very difficult to […]
