Gartner MQ for Content-Aware Data Loss Prevention

Earlier this month Gartner released its 2010 Magic Quadrant for Content-Aware Data Loss Prevention, and we are extremely pleased that the analysts recognize the value and strength of Code Green Network’s easy-to-use, low-cost, content-aware network data loss prevention solution.

“It is very easy to deploy and use for up to 50,000 users, making the overall offering attractive to price sensitive enterprise buyers.

We believe that Gartner and other analysts’ recommendations can be very helpful in sorting through the myriad of products on the market. We suggest taking the Magic Quadrant and the associated analysis into consideration based on your organization’s size, needs and infrastructure.

A key theme emerged in this year’s report: ease-of-use, or as we think about it, simplicity. While data loss prevention (DLP) solutions have existed for some time, they typically have been complex to deploy and manage, and in many cases, engineered as “bolt on” products added to other solutions in the vendor’s product line. Since DLP is our only business, we have focused on simplicity: easy-to-set up, easy-to-deploy, and easy-to-manage. In most cases, our customers get a complete DLP solution in a single appliance, while the same functionality can require up to seven appliances from other vendors. More complex solutions often require a full-time person just to manage them. In contrast, most TrueDLP users spend as little as an hour each week managing DLP:
