Saw this linked from Kevin Rowney, from Symantec, head of the DLP product and wanted to respond.
The article, “Nine out of 10 firms use data leakage prevention tools" and I wanted to respond “Oh Really?” What exactly is their definition of data leakage tools? A lot of the companies I work with and talk have no data loss prevention tools and in fact most of them don’t have anything budgeted in regards to these types of tools
A DLP purchase is often times not a budgeted purchase, but something that is driven by a business need and not an IT need.
Interested in DLP, drop me a note
