Too many data-loss prevention tools become shelfware, says analyst

Ellen Messmer | June 22, 2010
The good, the bad and the ugly of data-loss prevention tools and technologies got a solid once over from Gartner analyst Eric Ouellet, who spared no punches during his presentation on the topic during the first day of Gartner's Security & Risk Management Summit.

The "international" category is where a lot of work remains to be done, Ouellet said, because there's not a lot of multi-lingual support and "the management console is typically English-langauge only."

DLP customers should also be aware that their choices contain some elements of lock-in. "Right now DLP policies are individualized by vendors," Ouellet said. "You can't take a policy and apply it to another vendor's products." But that may change over the next few years if a push towards standardization in XML-based formats gains steam.
