Updating GTP’s DLP Coverage

by Ben Tomhave  |  November 12, 2014  |  Submit a Comment

It’s been a couple years since the last update of our DLP coverage. In the process of updating it this go-round, I’ll be taking the reins from Anton Chuvakin and picking up primary coverage of DLP for the SRMS team. In addition to revising the existing documents (Enterprise Content-Aware DLP Solution Comparison and Select Vendor Profiles and Enterprise Content-Aware DLP Architecture and Operational PracticesGTP subscription required), we’ll also be spinning off a foundational document that can be referenced when getting started with a project.

Overall, we have some very hard questions for the vendors to answer, such as whether or not DLP is viable and valuable going forward, or if it’s instead too expensive and difficult to maintain and operate. We’re also seeking out stories from our end-user clients (good or bad!) about DLP projects/implementations. If you have a success or failure story, then we’d love to hear about it (doesn’t need to be cited by name!). Feel free to leave a comment on this post, email me, or message me on twitter.

I’m looking forward to this research process and would love to hear about your experiences!
