The next few years will be key for DLP – it will either become a security staple, or another niche tool.
London, ON (PRWEB) June 08, 2011
A recent Data Leakage Protection (DLP) Vendor Landscape report published by Info-Tech Research Group and titled, “Select an Enterprise Data Loss Prevention Solution,” ranked WebSense, RSA and McAfee as Champions in the DLP market.
“The DLP market is still in its infancy,” said James Quin, Lead Research Analyst for Info-Tech Research Group. “As big brand vendors work to incorporate acquisitions more cleanly into their portfolios, the few remaining independents scuffle to maintain relevance and viability in a slowly growing market. The next few years will be key for DLP – it will either become a security staple, or another niche tool.”
WebSense also received the “Best Overall Value Award.” Its hugely robust solution with exceptional international policy and multi-language support is priced well below that of the competition and is the most compelling option when value for money is taken into consideration.
For organizations with deeper pockets, the other two Champions in the space, RSA and McAfee, boast rich features at a rich price tag. But, if an organization has already implemented RSA and McAfee products in their environment, deploying their DLP solutions becomes faster and significantly more cost-effective.
