Gartner: ‘Market Guide for Enterprise Data Loss Prevention’
Industry Analyst Report
With the evolution of today’s workplace environment, the need for unified data protection covering all solution areas like endpoint, discovery, email, network and cloud has become more critical than ever. According to Gartner, the enterprise DLP market is mature, but the emergence of data security features native to cloud ecosystems and alternate behavioral detection approaches is changing its dynamics.
Download the report to discover findings such as:
- Data loss prevention (DLP) is foremost a well-defined security process that is bolstered by supporting technology.
- DLP projects that are not tied to specific initiatives or goals are indicative of immature data security governance. This results in inconsistent use cases and requirements, making the DLP technology selection process difficult and giving those projects poor odds.
- Organizations requiring a basic set of DLP functionality or focusing on one specific use case, such as DLP for email for regulatory compliance, are adopting integrated DLP including cloud-service-provider-native DLP.
- Organizations looking to deploy DLP capabilities to more than one use case, such as endpoint, email and cloud, are deploying enterprise DLP solutions because of the advantages of centralized and reusable policies, simplified management and advanced reporting.
- Small to midsize organizations often struggle to implement and operate enterprise DLP tools and to yield tangible results. Consulting and managed DLP services can offer a path to value, but can cannot replace the internal data knowledge and ownership of risk by business units.
