Re: Data Loss Prevention Companies

As I see it, there are three major challenges to any DLP solution:

1.  Does it address physical removal and transport of devices/media?  How?

2.  Does it address encrypted network transmissions?  How?

3.  How does it recognize our sensitive data -- without its own recognition
database becoming
the juiciest target in the enterprise?

  I submit that a product without good answers to these questions falls
short of being a
"solution".

We too at SNHU have recently initiated a process of evaluating the value of
DLP.  We are currently looking at Symantec's Vontu.  I would appreciate any
input on Data Loss Prevention companies as well.

Regards,
