7 Requirements of Data Loss Prevention

7 Requirements of Data Loss Prevention

Global organizations and government agencies require more than network security to guard their confidential data and sensitive information. They must protect the data itself.

Leading analyst firm Gartner estimates that insiders are responsible for 70 percent of security incidents that incur losses. With the average cost of a single internal data breach estimated at $14 million, companies are looking beyond protecting network perimeters from external threats. They are now implementing solutions that guard against the insider threat by delivering unified protection of data wherever it is stored or used.

This guide provides a clear overview of the capabilities a successful Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solution must deliver. It also incorporates insight and best practices from companies that implemented a DLP solution. If you are evaluating DLP solutions, use this report as a high-level guide for establishing your organization's requirements.
