Data Loss Prevention Market at the Peak of its Game as BYOD and Cloud Make the Solution Imperative

London, ON (PRWEB) August 01, 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 technologys life has created a fork in the road. DLPs 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. Its 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. RSAs 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.
