Data Loss Prevention

Ten Years and Running, Symantec is Named the Leader in Data Loss Prevention by Gartner Magic Quadrant

DLP Moves Toward the Mainstream

The data loss prevention (DLP) market is poised for continued growth in 2017, due to businesses’ requirements to ensure regulatory compliance, protect intellectual property, and gain visibility into emerging data loss channels such as cloud apps, according to a new report from Gartner.


The DLP business is estimated to grow 9.8% year-over-year, from $894 million in 2016 to $1.3 billion in 2020, according to Gartner.


Symantec is Named a Leader in DLP

Evaluating 12 vendors across competitive buying criteria, Gartner named Symantec as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Data Loss Prevention.


Here are a few reasons why the world’s largest brands choose Symantec to protect their information:

  • We provide the broadest coverage of data loss channels: cloud and web apps, endpoints, data repositories, and network communications including encrypted SSL.
  • We offer the most comprehensive, content-aware detection technologies - from data fingerprinting to image analysis – so you can identify content containing PII, customer records, health information, intellectual property, and more.
  • We make it easy to manage and deploy DLP with a powerful management console and flexible deployment options ranging from on-premises and private clouds to hybrid and pubic clouds.


Next for Symantec: Cloud and Information-Centric Security 

Over the past year, we’ve built out our cloud security platform with new services like the DLP Cloud Service for Email, DLP Cloud Service for CASB, and DLP Cloud Service for Cloud Proxy – all of which give you added visibility into sensitive data moving in and out of cloud apps.


Our engineers are hard at work building the next generation of DLP. We believe the future of data security lies in bringing multiple disciplines together: data loss prevention, cloud security, identity management and encryption. By integrating these disjointed security technologies, we can deliver simplified cloud and information-centric security to our customers.


Thank You to Our Customers and Partners!

We’re honored to be recognized by Gartner for our continued leadership in DLP. It is a testament to our commitment to security innovation and to the loyalty of our customers and partners. Here’s to ten more years of continued success!

Congrats on the recognition award. I assume that the demand for DLP cloud will go up year-on-year. Most solutions are getting transferred to the cloud and it is imperative to ensure the data is protected, otherwise, there is a huge risk of loosing customer's confidence.

DLP is becoming increasingly important, especially in the financial sector or in industries that want to keep their projects secret. It's great that Symantec provide so many solutions to gain the goal to prevent data leaks. Wikileaks shows us how important it is to keep data safe!

Good to read that Symantec is still the market leader and that this has been recognised by Gartner. Congratualtions. Excelent from Symantec.

DLP is the undefeated champion today for 10 years.
Amazing news for Symantec.
Who says Symantec has lost vision, Symantec can never be defeated.
Very happy to see this achievement. DLP not only has proved it's worth but DLP has shown that there is nothing that can defeat for a long decade.
DLP is the future.

It's great to get the Gartner ratification.  Symantec's focus on data security is paying off. More and more companies are now moving to cloud-based services and it is products like DLP which mean that cloud services are no longer a lottery with regard to whether the data is safe and secure.

02-24-2017 04:54 AM

You have done it finally. This was something very much needed as clients mostly refers Gartner for their solution buying decisions. Great Achievement by Symantec and I congratulate them and wish for the best in the future.

02-24-2017 04:33 AM

Winning news for Symantec. Happy to know the achievement. Symantec is always leader and will remain the same. DLP is very complex and competitive area and its need a huge efforts to beat the rivals there. Great Going.

DLP in the enterprise is no joke and Symantec has it covered.

I have been assisting with DLP since version 11 in many ways and our company is definitely grateful for its features..

With Symantec consistantly adding and refining new features , theres no reason to not understatnd why they are where they are in the magic quadrant.


Thanks for your support.

02-23-2017 11:35 AM

Congratulations yet again! It's shaping up to be a good year for Symantec. Here's hoping you all keep up the great work!

02-23-2017 10:32 AM

Great to see yet another year leading the pack.  Maybe Gartner should just retire the quadrant for DLP as you guys keep winning it.


Looking forward to seeing what comes next as you guys continue to innovate and grow

02-23-2017 10:18 AM

Three cheers to Symantec...
Hip Hip Hurray!!!!
Way to go! Glad to see that your implementing it for cloud service, there's still no warm and fuzzy feeling putting your data in the cloud.

DLP de symantec es uno de los productos mejor valorados, sin lugar a duda su facil administracion e instalacion permite a los clientes optar por consumir este producto ante otro de la competencia. En los ultimos años se ha demostrado la capacidad de esta herramienta.



02-23-2017 09:25 AM

Congrats @Symantec on another year of being a leader for DLP solutions!

I don't manage the environment, however a colleague of mine does and he is very happy with the solution.  I look forward to seeing more great improvements and results with DLP 15 (including auto update)!

02-23-2017 07:54 AM

Our users have the remarkable ability to scatter data far-and-wide, on as many platforms as they can find. Anything that can help reign that in and keep it secure is invaluable. The trend of letting the users decide how they want to work is a risky one and I can't see it ending.

02-23-2017 03:17 AM

Its great to see Symantec continue to add to the features and not sit back on previous years achievements.

Looking forward to what it can bring in the future.

Congrats for another year.

02-23-2017 01:40 AM

No doubt that Symantec is great lead in the DLP products, its coeverage is from cloud to endpoint, cannot wait to see the next generation DLP, I believe the demand is stil high as more and more companies trying to protect their intelligency and meet the regulatory requirement.

02-22-2017 09:26 PM

Symantec continues to prove they are the leaders in the DLP space. They cover multiple areas with their products and the support behind it is grade A.

02-21-2017 03:32 PM

Specifically, what I like here is that DLP has the ability to move into the cloud app space, especially with so many different cloud apps that exist today. Combine that with the CASB and this looks to be very promising. I think will keep a much tighter control on sensitive data.
