SANTA CLARA, Calif., October 12, 2010 - McAfee, Inc., today announced that that it has been named a leader in the Data Leak Prevention Suites market (Forrester Research Inc.’s “The Forrester Wave™: Data Leak Prevention Suites, Q4, 2010, October 2010”). The report describes McAfee’s position as a leader in the Data Leak Prevention (DLP) suites market due to its strong technology and its significant technical breadth and depth, including the highest score for its endpoint DLP features.
According to the report, “McAfee DLP scored the highest for endpoint DLP features. The DLP suite also includes multiple features designed to reduce the overall hassle factor: tuning tools to quickly make exceptions to rules, it’s unique “capture database,” and features for employee self release and bypass. McAfee DLP’s strong feature set should appeal to most enterprises, especially those with existing installations of the company’s McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator, McAfee Total Protection, or Endpoint Encryption products.”
The DLP market is rapidly growing, fueled by ever increasing government and industry regulations and businesses emphasizing the importance of protecting valuable corporate data such as product plans, financial records and intellectual property. McAfee® Data Loss Prevention delivers the highest levels of protection for all types of sensitive data, while greatly reducing the cost and complexity of safeguarding business critical information. McAfee data protection is delivered through our low-maintenance appliance and the McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® platform, for streamlined deployment, management, updates and reports.
“McAfee is uniquely positioned to continue driving data loss protection technology into and across corporate security infrastructure, including agents, web, mail, and cloud offerings to ensure simplicity while increasing capability and scale for the enterprise. McAfee delivers cost-effective, intuitive data discovery, and features that not only protect the business, but enable it,” said Marc Olesen, senior vice president & general manager of Content Security at McAfee. “With McAfee Data Loss Prevention technology we enable the deployment of DLP that is cost effective and quick to value.”
