Every day, data is leaking out of your network. You may not know it; you may even pretend to ignore it. But doing so carries high risk: a batch of stolen credit card numbers can be instantly published on a hacking Web site, and more targeted attacks can compromise your employees’ banking information or other identity thefts.
Luckily, there are more than ten different data loss prevention (DLP) products that are available, some from the major security vendors, including McAfee, Symantec, and Trend Micro. You can read more about this and get links for these and other DLP products in an article I wrote for eSecurityPlanet.com here.
