AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Forcepoint*, a global leader in empowering organizations to drive business forward through transformative security technologies, has been recognized by Gartner Inc. as a "Leader" (i) in the "Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Data Loss Prevention" (ii) for the eighth time.

Forcepoint's Data Loss Prevention (DLP) products, including TRITON AP-DATA Discover, TRITON AP-DATA Gateway and TRITON AP-ENDPOINT DLP, are a core part of the Forcepoint™ TRITON APX architecture delivering adaptive capabilities, real-time defenses and predictive and actionable threat intelligence across the entire threat lifecycle. 

"We're pleased to once again be acknowledged by Gartner as a Leader in enterprise DLP," said John McCormack, Forcepoint CEO. "Our solutions continue to be a model for comprehensive data protection because of our ability to respond to our customer's strategic security priorities, including the insider threat and cloud service adoption, and deliver innovative features to help address those challenges."

Forcepoint TRITON AP-DATA is used by global brands and organizations to protect intellectual property, customer data (personally identifiable information or PII) and address regulatory compliance requirements. The solution has a long history of DLP innovation and market firsts, including:

  • DLP for cloud collaboration platforms – discovery of sensitive content stored in Box, Microsoft Exchange Online and Microsoft SharePoint Online (part of Microsoft Office 365) using Native APIs.
  • Insider Threat detection – providing predefined DLP policies to identify insider threats and compromised endpoints using advanced content analysis and content awareness techniques.
  • IP protection for a mobile workforce – protecting both structured (database records) and unstructured (documents) data sets stored on corporate laptops that are away from corporate networks, e.g. in use in a hotel or a home office.
  • Full DLP policy enforcement on Microsoft Windows 10 and Apple OS X – preventing data loss via web browsers, email clients, removable storage devices, cloud storage services, IM clients and network printing.

Forcepoint's enterprise DLP technology is also integrated into both the TRITON AP-WEB (Secure Web Gateway) and TRITON AP-EMAIL (Secure Email Gateway) platforms. Integrated DLP enables businesses to take a phased approached to rolling out and implementing an enterprise DLP program.

Forcepoint has also recently rolled out integration between SureView ® Insider Threat, a user behavioral  analytics solution that identifies high risk employees based on their activities, and TRITON AP-DATA.

Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Data Loss Prevention evaluation follows similar recognition of Forcepoint* by Gartner, including being named for the sixth consecutive year as a Leader in Gartner's 2015 "Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateways" (iii) and being placed in the Visionaries Quadrant of its 2015 "Magic Quadrant for Secure Email Gateways" (iv).
