I don't believe that we had a DLP in place prior to now. We had security, but two and a half years ago our agency set out to really step up its information security program. During that time we have made major investments, in process, like data classification, security concerns, risk assessments, risk management, etc. We do this for a living, so it is important to us. There were products out there for data loss prevention technology, but we didn't believe that they had yet achieved the maturity that they have today, so it would have been premature to pull something in sooner. The marketing in and of itself is growing, expanding, and changing. Wait until you get ready to do business intelligence and artificial intelligence and try to secure that when it can bypass you on its own. Give learning machines enough instructions and they will figure a way out. View full review »

Before Forcepoint, we used the McAfee solution for internet security. It had flaws and was lacking in terms of technological advancement. We still use McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator, but most of the time not for DLP. We use it for endpoint solutions such as malware detection. View full review »

From the DLP perspective, I have only used Forcepoint, but from the perspective of general edge firewall URL filtering, I've used Checkpoint. I've also used Sophos in the past. View full review »
