BEDFORD, Mass., June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- RSA, The Security Division of EMC (NYSE: EMC), today announced that it is positioned in the Leaders quadrant within Gartner's 2010 Magic Quadrant for Content-Aware Data Loss Prevention (DLP). The positioning is based on completeness of vision and ability to execute and evaluates its RSA® Data Loss Prevention Suite. It appears in the June 2, 2010 report by Paul Proctor and Eric Ouellet entitled, "Magic Quadrant for Content-Aware Data Loss Prevention."
According to Gartner, content-aware DLP technologies are "those that -- as a core function -- perform content inspection of data at rest or in motion, and can execute responses, ranging from simple notification to active blocking, based on policy settings. To be considered, products must support sophisticated detection techniques that extend beyond simple keyword matching and regular expressions."
The RSA Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Suite is engineered to help organizations understand business risk from sensitive data and help systematically reduce it. This is achieved by discovering sensitive data, monitoring user actions, educating end users and security analysts on risk and finally enforcing controls to help prevent data leakage. The RSA DLP Suite is designed to help mitigate risks regardless of whether the data is at rest in a datacenter, moving as traffic in the network, or used by an end user at an endpoint.
The DLP Suite is comprised of three modules -- RSA® DLP Datacenter, RSA® DLP Network, and RSA® DLP Endpoint -- and a central management console, RSA® DLP Enterprise Manager. The solution is one of the most comprehensive DLP solutions in the market and offers expert built-in policies for various regulations, an incident workflow methodology and a robust data classification framework.
"We are extremely proud that the report from Gartner positioned RSA in the Leaders quadrant," said Christopher Young, Senior Vice President, Products, Technologies and Markets, RSA, The Security Division of EMC. "Our built-in approach to information protection helps provide our customers with one of the most complete DLP solutions to discover and secure sensitive information as it moves through the IT environment."
