Symantec launches DLP 10

Symantec unveils the industry's first open data loss prevention (DLP) platform

Symantec has announced Symantec Data Loss Prevention 10, the industry's first open data loss prevention (DLP) platform, which aims to give customers more options to find and fix data loss problems. As organizations strive to center their security strategies around information, DLP becomes essential.

To help customers better protect sensitive data, Symantec claims that its open DLP platform will help organizations effectively leverage content-awareness across security deployments enterprise-wide and take actions that secure data and prevent its loss. Symantec Data Loss Prevention 10 will allow companies to apply encryption and enterprise rights management (ERM) based on content and will integrate with additional Symantec solutions, the company said.

"By opening our DLP platform, we give customers more choices and flexibility to better protect the sensitive information in their unique IT environments," said Vishal Dhupar, Managing Director, Symantec India. "We're a step closer to realizing the vision of true information-centric security by extending content-awareness into many layers of security, he said."

According to Symantec, this would enable customers to achieve measureable success from DLP deployments and gain the knowledge and experience needed to continually optimize the solution over time. By combining advisory consulting services and data loss prevention technologies, Symantec claims to provide customers with a detailed analysis of their exposure to internal and external data breaches, and a quantitative assessment of actual data loss across networks, web applications storage and endpoints.

Symantec Data Loss Prevention 10 will have policy and detection support for 25 languages and will add full product localization for Japanese, Simplified Chinese and French languages so that native speakers can create policies, manage and respond to incidents, and perform full system management, the company informed.

Symantec Data Loss Prevention 10 is expected to be available in December 2009.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)
