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 […]

DLP Myth #5: DLD is the same thing as DLP

Posted by | No Tags | Analysts · DLP False Positives · DLP Products · DLP Technologies · DLP Vendors · Fidelis · GTB Technologies | No Comments on DLP Myth #5: DLD is the same thing as DLP

It may surprise you to find that many DLP enforcement technology implementations are not even DLP–they’re DLD, data loss detection.  Too many companies forget that the “P” stands for prevention.  Blocking.  Frankly, it’s not really the end user’s fault, rather the responsibility of the vendors.  There are a couple critical elements at play in this […]

DLP Myth #4: DLP is Expensive

Posted by | No Tags | DLP Products · DLP Technologies | No Comments on DLP Myth #4: DLP is Expensive

The topic of Data Loss Prevention enforcement technology expense is a difficult one to address.  DLP technologies have long been considered very expensive and in fact, many still are.  But the idea of DLP technologies can be sliced and mixed and mashed in so many ways, it is possible to purchase DLP enforcement technologies without […]

DLP Myth #3: You can “buy” DLP

Posted by | No Tags | DLP Process · DLP Products · DLP Technologies | No Comments on DLP Myth #3: You can “buy” DLP

Many organizations considering data loss prevention focus on technology to address the need.  While you can “buy” DLP enforcement technologies, data loss prevention is more than a product.  Data loss prevention is a process and one step in that process is the purchase and deployment of technologies to enforce an organization’s data protection strategy. Some […]

DLP Myth #2: DLP is Architecturally Complex

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 […]
