Gartner defines the data loss prevention (DLP) market as those technologies that, as a core function, perform both content inspection and contextual analysis of data at rest on-premises or in cloud applications and cloud storage, in motion over the network, or in use on a managed endpoint device. Enterprise DLP solutions incorporate sophisticated detection techniques to help organizations address their most critical data protection requirements. Solutions are packaged in agent software for desktops and servers, physical and virtual appliances for monitoring networks and agents, or soft appliances for data discovery. Leading characteristics of enterprise DLP solutions include a centralized management console, support for the advanced policy definition and event management workflow. Enterprise DLP functions as a comprehensive solution to discover sensitive data within an organization and mitigate the risk of its loss at the endpoints, in storage and over the network.
