INDIA: RSA, the Security Division of EMC, announced that it is positioned in the Leaders quadrant within Gartner's 2008 Magic Quadrant for Content Monitoring and Filtering and Data Loss Prevention.


This designation was based on the RSA Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Suite's completeness of vision and ability to execute, and appears in the June 2008 report by Eric Ouellet and Paul Proctor entitled "Magic Quadrant for Content Monitoring and Filtering and Data Loss Prevention."

Gartner defines Data Loss Prevention tools as those "used to prevent inadvertent or accidental loss or exposure of sensitive enterprise information using content inspection technologies." The report also states, "We have long believed that integrated network, endpoint and discovery capabilities - with a centralized management console capable of distributing a consistent set of policies and providing usable back-end workflow for alerting on and remediating violations - the ultimate goal and destination of this market."

"We believe that our position in the leaders' quadrant of the Data Loss Prevention Magic Quadrant reflects the completeness of our vision and validates that we are positioned to provide solutions that address the overall process of helping to secure data in a holistic manner," said Dennis Hoffman, Vice President and General Manager, Data Security Group, and Chief Strategy Officer at RSA, The Security Division of EMC.

"We continue to be vigilant in enhancing our DLP offerings, bringing significant enhancements to market with our 6.0 release which was announced last month, starting integration on all our data security products, and collaborating with industry leaders like Cisco so that customers can discover, monitor, and enforce the use of sensitive data directly into the infrastructure - no matter where it moves, how it moves or where it is."

The RSA DLP Suite is engineered to provide unified, seamless data policy orchestration across the enterprise, allowing customers to discover and monitor sensitive data and apply the appropriate enforcement mechanisms to secure sensitive data across the IT stack. The DLP Suite includes RSA DLP Endpoint, RSA DLP Network, and RSA DLP Datacenter, with overall management of the Suite provided by the RSA DLP Enterprise Manager.
