Best data loss/leakage prevention

Winner: Websense for Websense Data Security Suite

Many organizations rank data loss prevention (DLP) as today's greatest security challenge. Identifying confidential data, where it is stored, whether or not it's secure, and who is using it and how are just some of the hurdles that Websense Data Security Suite helps organizations overcome. Websense Data Security Suite is one of the leading DLP solution on the market, cited as a leader by multiple, independent analyst firms including Gartner and Forrester. It discovers, monitors and protects data at rest, in use and in motion. It is deployed in organizations large and small around the globe to protect their most sensitive data, including data regulated by such mandates as HIPAA, PCI, SOX and others. The solution identifies what data is confidential, where it's stored, who's using it and how, and automatically secures that data. Websense's approach  is unique, delivering accuracy, solid coverage and a thorough  policy framework.

Covering both the network and endpoint, Websense Data Security Suite combines accurate understanding of the data with contextual awareness around how it's being used and by whom. This intelligence enables organizations to build policies to manage who can send what data, where and how – policies that map to their business processes. For example, a user may be allowed to visit a website, but is blocked from posting data, based on who the user is, what data they're attempting to post, what website they're trying to post to, and how. Websense Data Security Suite includes digital fingerprinting technology, proven to be the most accurate at detecting confidential data. On the other hand, many competitive solutions rely on regular expressions, which offer only a description of the data.

Customers benefit from the granular visibility into their information and the reporting of business processes provided by the Websense Data Security Suite. With the solution, organizations can prevent data loss and secure a competitive advantage by protecting against the consequences of a data leak, including damage to brand and the loss of corporate secrets.
