Want the Real Scoop on DLP and Data Protection Technologies?

We’re talking about the nitty-gritty details some people don’t want you to know. Please don’t misunderstand. We love our data protection technology vendors and have worked with them every day for the past 15 years. But our ultimate commitment is to our customer, the user. (Yes, that would be you.)

Critical information on data protection technologies is out there, but it’s closely-guarded. Our goal is to share everything about every data protection technology available. This is the only way you can find the right solution. We created the DLP Truth and Consequences white paper to share some of that critical information:

  • What are the differences between Enterprise DLP solutions and Integrated DLP (Channel DLP)?
  • What are common weaknesses of DLP?
  • How these weaknesses can hurt your org?
  • What critical role does data visibility play in data protection?
  • How you can validate your data protection program? (Whether you have DLP or not)


    Download the DLP Truth and Consequences for detailed
    information on how critical data visibility is and
    how you can gain this visibility with a simple,
    low-cost service.

    Is DLP Really What You Need – or is it Another Technology?


    DLP has been the go-to technology for data protection for well over a decade. But lately customers tell us they’re looking for something more – or something different. For example, many companies now want visibility into data use activity before attempts to egress data. DLP can’t provide this visibility, but there are solutions that can. Other companies have requirements to protect data in the cloud or even after data has left the building – neither of these requirements can fully be addressed by DLP alone, so other technologies are needed. Often times, what’s really needed is a combination of technologies integrated and focused on data protection. Here’s some food for thought on this subject:

    If your company is considering DLP technologies to help safeguard your critical data, there’s a lot you can learn from DLP Experts’ DLP Buyer’s Guide. In addition to more detail on each leading DLP vendor, we also provide explanations of the major DLP approaches – and which approach may be right for your organization. We address DLP solution complexity – does DLP have to be so hard to deploy and manage? Spoiler alert: the answer is NO! (and the Buyer’s Guide explains why). What about your existing technologies? How will proposed DLP solutions impact your network infrastructure? Will you have to purchase other technologies to go along with your DLP investment? Another spoiler alert: depending on the DLP solution, YES – you may have to buy another technology to get the most from your DLP solution. And there’s a lot more where that came from!

    No one knows DLP technologies like DLP Experts. No other company has our level of knowledge and experience across leading DLP vendors. And what others may know, they aren’t likely to share. Don’t take it from us. Here’s what some of our recent customers had to say about DLP Experts:

    DLP Experts coordinated meetings and discussions with multiple DLP solutions and went to bat for us multiple times during negotiations and while scoping project and deliverables. They provided a great service being able to remain product neutral and factual when discussing options. DLP Experts was the number one reason for our project succeeding. They were above board and honest when discussing every solution. Their knowledge of the DLP space is unparalleled and if I had another DLP project to fulfill I would certainly seek out their assistance once again.
    The thing that we most appreciated about DLP Experts is their familiarity with many DLP products. We did not have time or resources to perform a full RFQ/Evaluation, and the time that DLPX spent with us finding out our needs really got us to the point where we were able to more rapidly select a product. We believe they were vendor neutral in this process and were truly interested in helping us find the product that best fit our needs.
    DLP Experts interfaced with the assessment vendor and took care of much of what we normally have to handle ourselves, saving us a lot of time. As we considered multiple vendors, DLP Experts helped us in our due diligence process, providing product information, personal experience and vendor pricing.
    DLP Experts knows all the available products and what’s the best fit. They helped us fix issues after choosing another vendor on our own. They were very helpful and their honesty and integrity was never in question.
