Data Loss Prevention:
What Works, What Doesn't, And How to Make the Most of DLP
An InformationWeek Webcast
Duration: One Hour
With Web 2.0 apps, IM, file sharing, smartphones, Facebook, Twitter and other as-yet-to-be-invented communication channels, employees have ample opportunity to lose-or steal-data. IT professionals understand this and realize that security is evolving from network protection to safeguarding information.
Data loss prevention (DLP) tools are a key technology component of an information-centric security strategy. DLP software can be deployed on the network to watch outbound communications streams, and on PCs and laptops to ensure sensitive files don't leak out when users are off the corporate LAN.
Of course, while DLP can go a long way to preventing a devastating data loss, the technology has limitations and should not be considered as the only mechanism for protecting information. This Webcast will drill down into the pros and cons of DLP technology, both on the network and on endpoints. We'll share key insights gleaned from our lab tests of leading DLP products as well as our original research. Attendees will come away with a clear understanding of the benefits-and limits-of DLP, key features of the technology, how to incorporate DLP into a broader security strategy, and real-world analysis of the operational requirements and challenges of DLP.
