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.
