Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Is Not a Plug-and-Play Solution, Claims infoLock Technologies

ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwire - Jul 28, 2011) - With high profile data breaches capturing headlines almost every week and data loss costs at an all time high, information-driven organizations are shifting focus from securing their devices and networks to securing the data itself. Data Loss Prevention (DLP) has emerged as the leading solution for content-aware data identification, monitoring, and protection. However, while installing DLP software can be a straightforward process, it is not a plug-and-play solution, claims infoLock Technologies (ILT).

DLP's success is based largely on its ability to integrate with existing infrastructure, support and enhance business processes, and promote organizational security goals. Therefore, creating a robust DLP program requires a clear understanding of data security objectives and regulatory requirements, the creation of information security policies that support organizational processes, and well-defined incident response and remediation workflow procedures.

"DLP is a powerful tool for companies who want to secure confidential corporate or customer data," said Sean Steele, ILT Principal and DLP practice lead. "However, you cannot just download the software, click 'install,' and expect it to start capturing incidents. The detection tools need to be fine tuned, policies created, and remediation procedures established before you can take advantage of the solution's full capabilities."

With more than twenty-five years of combined information security consulting experience and a mature DLP services practice, infoLock Technologies has helped organizations in both the private and public sector implement sophisticated DLP programs that optimize application functionality, reduce risk profile, manage new threats, and enhance business operations.
