According to Gartner, it bases its Peer Insights Customers’ Choice on customer feedback and ratings, taking into account both the number of reviews and the overall user ratings of verified end-users. Gartner maintains rigorous criteria for recognizing vendors with a high customer satisfaction rate.     

Gartner defines data loss as the following: “Enterprise data loss prevention (EDLP) comprises offerings that provide visibility into data usage across an organization for a broad set of use cases and the dynamic application of policies based on the content and context at the time of an operation.” 

“EDLP seeks to address data-related threats including the risks of inadvertent or accidental data loss, and the exposure of sensitive data using monitoring, filtering, blocking, and other remediation features.”

The three vendors selected for the Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Enterprise Data Loss Prevention include Symantec DLP (now acquired by Broadcom), McAfee DLP, and Forcepoint DLP.

IT decision-makers seek out enterprise data loss prevention to help stop leakages or other data exposures from occurring. This includes preventing uploading sensitive information to unauthorized public cloud databases or portable devices like USBs. Modern endpoint security depends on data loss prevention to help them maintain a strong digital perimeter and monitor the movements of data. 

With the necessity of modern work-from-home policies in the wake of the coronavirus, making sensitive data stays within approved digital locations is even more important.
