DLP Vendor Landscape 2012

DLP is becoming more important than ever due to the rise of cloud and BYOD, according to Info-Tech Research Group. A Data Loss Prevention Vendor Landscape report, published by Info-Tech Research Group, ranked Trend Micro, Websense, McAfee and RSA as Champions in a market in the spotlight and under scrutiny to stay ahead of the curve.

“DLP is at a critical stage right now as mobile devices and cloud servers are unowned and, to a degree, unmanaged. This means the restrictions that are in place about what data makes its way to these different environments are very important,” said James Quin, Research Director for Info-Tech Research Group. “The pressure being put on the industry to uphold standards during such an important period in the technology’s life has created a fork in the road. DLP’s future will either see large footprint-dedicated solutions reign free or sink into core security tools, like Unified Threat Management (UTM) or anti-malware.”

Trend Micro ranks as a Champion and wins the Best Value Award, offering a wide breadth of features at a competitive price. A provider of both consumer and enterprise products, Trend Micro has grown to become a respected player in the security space.

Ranking as a Champion, Websense also walked away with the Trend Setter award. It’s feature-rich and highly integrated DLP product is recommended for organizations looking for international policy and multi-language support.

Continuing to be a leader, McAfee earned a spot in the Champion quadrant with their DLP solution. The highly integrated product is backed by a vendor with strong support and viability in the market.

The security division of EMC, RSA is seen as an extremely robust and long-term player in the security space. RSA’s DLP ranks as a Champion in the report and boasts an agentless mobile device support to protect sensitive data flow on a wide range of mobile platforms.
