We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The data matching features are the most valuable due to the easy policy setup and implementation.The most valuable feature of this solution is endpoint security.I'm able to track everyone who is trying to send information outside the environment and to know if they are not supposed to be sending it. I'm also able to see the people who are accessing or maybe try to access the information they are not supposed to be accessing based on their level of classification. It gives me overall control of who has got access to what and at what point. And who can do what with specific information.The features I like most about this solution is the endpoint modules because it gives us the protection we need.They have a feature on the management side called the document indexer. Let's say you have a unique document with many near identical versions, which have one or several values that change, while the rest of the content stays the same. You can collect 50 of those documents and put them into this feature of the Symantec DLP system. It will compress them and create a profile specifically for that document.The product is very stable.The synchronize application detection policies have been very good.We are able to contain our confidential data in our environment.

Cons
The enforce service is difficult to understand, and free courses made available on the internet would be useful.This product is very powerful but it is very complex, so making it simpler to use would be an improvement.In a majority of cases, most of the companies are using DLP for endpoint sessions, where you have a user that might be communicating information outside of the company. However, they forget there are actual interfaces that can directly communicate with either the database or other files within the data center that uses end-to-end encryption. In those cases, you might need things like your DLP to be able to monitor and block some of that. The solution needs to catch information communicated through the data center on the server-side.I do have a problem with the database.That fine tuning has to be done for the customer as well as the vendor. So if I take Symantec DLP, we have to have some final fine tuning but we may need some time developing this depending on the customer. This is an area where something can be done to improve the product.Virtualization is not currently supported.We want a more proactive reporting structure.They could improve the predefined reports because they don't have much information. We would like detailed reports.

Being able to specify an agent list, or client list, to allow support from outside of the organization, would be of benefit to this solution.Trend Micro could be priced better, currently, it's a bit high. And there needs to be better after the sale, technical support.I would like to provide improved network direction in order to regulate all of the user agents. We only use Trend Micro Data Loss Prevention to manage various threats and malicious user agents currently.Needs a remote login option.

Pricing and Cost Advice
In terms of pricing, Symantec DLP works with Oracle Database. Oracle Database licensing is much more expensive than other databases. That might be a drawback for customers. The pricing is on a yearly subscription basis.We are happy with the pricing and licencing.The pricing is competitive and not pricey. We also receive corporate discounts.The pricing and licensing are based on per user endpoints.From what I know the pricing is good, it's not too expensive. If you negotiate you can get a good price.

Overview

Keeping sensitive corporate information safe and compliant has never been easy. But today, you’re faced with a totally new set of data protection challenges. Sensitive information is leaving the safety of your corporate network as more employees share files over consumer cloud storage services and access those files on their own mobile devices. The number of targeted cyber attacks continues to grow, as cybercriminals develop effective new methods for defeating traditional security measures and stealing corporate information. And as all of these factors converge, it becomes increasingly difficult to manage corporate information and protect it against loss and theft. 

Symantec Data Loss Prevention (DLP) provides a comprehensive approach to information protection that embraces today’s cloud- and mobile-centered realities. With DLP, you can:

• Discover where data is stored across all of your cloud, mobile, network, endpoint, and storage systems

• Monitor how data is being used, whether your employees are on or off the network

• Protect data from being leaked or stolen—no matter where it’s stored or how it’s used

Trend Micro Integrated DLP minimizes the complexity and cost of data security by integrating DLP functionality directly into your existing Trend Micro solutions and management consoles.
