Securing data has become a labor-intensive task due to tremendous increases in volume and the far-reaching vectors it traverses. Only recently have compliance standards and frameworks cracked down on information security practices and most organizations still do not sufficiently monitor their data or control its accessibility. The aggressive changes in security protocols and tightened compliance standards affirm the importance of data loss prevention solutions, which control access and monitor behavior to prevent the improper handling or transfer of data.

Including tools like machine-learning-based behavior analysis and relationship graphs to advanced monitoring techniques, these products narrow the gap between actual and adequate data security practices. Unlike other product groups, the data loss prevention group does not necessarily appeal to a specific industry or organization. All organizations, regardless of size, need to incorporate data loss prevention into their security posture, and we are confident that at least one of these tools will suit most business needs.

Some organizations may even choose to deploy more than one option for bolstered data security. For security professionals that value their data (that should be all of you), we strongly endorse these products and recommend integrating them into your environments. All organizations should now consider data loss prevention tools to be security staples since their importance will only increase in the foreseeable future.
