Symantec Data Loss Prevention Other Advice

My advice is that the DLP solution is the emerging platform in the world at the moment. First, we had to get some idea on how data works at the customers: data in motion, data in rest, data traveling, etc. Typically data travels through emails from the endpoint by USB, email and CD writing it to a CD or copying it to a network share or from a network share. Those are what you need to know before starting the day of implementation. How this data travels inside and outside the environment. I would rate this solution as nine out of ten, because they are a leader, competing with some other vendors, providing updates, releasing new versions, and providing technical improvements on their side. I would say it's fine. View full review »
