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 […]

Single Channel DLP “Excluded” from Gartner DLP MQ?

Posted by | No Tags | DLP Products · DLP Vendors · Gartner · Safend | No Comments on Single Channel DLP “Excluded” from Gartner DLP MQ?

There is some chatter in and out of DLP circles about “single channel DLP” solutions.  The question is, should these solutions be included in that exclusive fraternity of solutions known as DLP or should the definition of DLP be altered to allow their inclusion?  By way of definition, single channel DLP would be solutions that […]

Posted by | No Tags | Analysts · Code Green Networks · DLP Products · DLP Vendors · Fidelis · McAfee · Symantec · Websense | No Comments on Gartner Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Magic Quadrant – SMB DLP?

I was waiting to digest the recent DLP MQ before I posted my thoughts and comments, but just read the Network World article reporting on Gartner analyst Eric Ouellet’s presentation at the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit this week.  (My full response to the new MQ will be forthcoming.)  There was one section that […]

Do Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Architectures Matter?

Posted by | No Tags | DLP Products · DLP Vendors | No Comments on Do Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Architectures Matter?

I just found a post in another DLP group asking users for installation graphics in order to understand a particular vendor’s deployment methodology.  The resulting comments included things like, “why study the installation of the technologies instead of just the capabilities?” I found that response to be nearly idiotic.  I don’t usually respond in these […]

False Positive “Rates” of Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Solutions

Posted by | No Tags | DLP False Positives · DLP Products · DLP Vendors | No Comments on False Positive “Rates” of Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Solutions

Download the White Paper   I saw an interesting request posted in a DLP discussion group today asking for the false positive rates for some of the top DLP products in the marketplace.  (Just the question itself, I think, goes to prove that the DLP space is still misunderstood by a lot of would-be DLP […]

Speaking of DLP Vendors You’ve Never Heard Of…

Posted by | No Tags | DLP Products · DLP Vendors | No Comments on Speaking of DLP Vendors You’ve Never Heard Of…

Well, I’ve actually heard of CoSoSys in my research, but have never encountered them in a production environment.  They have a funny YouTube video referencing their “Data Leakage” offering, which is an endpoint device control solution.  I don’t see anything on their site about the solution being content-aware (IMHO a critical requirement for endpoint protection […]

*  I just re-read this post that goes back two-plus years.  It’s interesting to see how things have changed–and what remains the same.  I’ll post later this week with my thoughts on ending the data loss prevention debate.

More DLP Vendors You’ve Never Heard Of

Posted by | No Tags | DLP Products · DLP Vendors | No Comments on More DLP Vendors You’ve Never Heard Of

As always, there are “DLP” vendors who come and go.  Or maybe more accurately, vendors who determine over time that their offering is not really data loss prevention.  This will be a running post of vendors I come across who claim to offer DLP.  The question is, of course, which definition of DLP are they […]

McAfee Retools Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Offering

Posted by | No Tags | DLP Products · DLP Vendors · McAfee | No Comments on McAfee Retools Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Offering

It’s been a long time coming, but McAfee has finally announced a more complete integration of its data loss prevention offering.  This lack of integration had caused many DLP buyers to exclude McAfee from competition.  The concern?  DLP is complex enough without having to manage the endpoint and gateway coverage in multiple interfaces. McAfee’s DLP […]
