DLP software allows a company to monitor all data movements in the company and ensure that “sensitive” data (i.e. intellectual property, financial information, etc.) does not go out of the company. Reconnex and Websense have been named as the two top leaders in this space by Forrester.
Forrester employed approximately 74 criteria in the categories of current offering, strategy, and market presence to evaluate participating vendors on a scale from 0 (weak) to 5 (strong).
- Reconnex received a perfect score of 5.0 in the sub-categories of data-in-motion (i.e., the network piece of DLP), unified management, and administration
- Reconnex tied for the top scores in the sub-categories of data-at-rest (i.e., discovery) and forensics
“Reconnex offers best-in-class product functionality through its automated classification and analysis engine, which allows customers to sift through the actual data that the engine monitors to learn what is important to protect,” according to the Forrester Wave: Data Leak Prevention, Q2 2008 Report. “This solution stands out because it is the only one that automatically discovers and classifies sensitive data without prior knowledge of what needs to be protected.”
