According to the report, “Gartner defines content-aware DLP technologies as those that — as a core function — perform content inspection of data at rest or in motion, and can execute responses — ranging from simple notification to active blocking — based on policy settings. To be considered, products must support sophisticated detection techniques that extend beyond simple keyword matching and regular expressions.”
“We consider our positioning in the ‘Leaders’ quadrant by Gartner confirmation of our strategy and mission to bring content and context into the realm of data protection and identity and access management,” said Mike Denning, general manager, Security business at CA Technologies. “CA DLP is a critical element for our strategy to deliver identity and access management that is both content- and context-aware, providing unique intelligence about user identities and the content they access.
“Today’s competitive market requires organizations to control users, their identities and what they can do with information,” Denning continued. “We are the only vendor that delivers the integrated technologies to successfully address this need and advance how data is protected from inappropriate use or disclosure without hampering productivity.”
