Data protection solutions are finally evolving to the current state of data: distributed, cloud-centric and always-on. Data used to only exist within the corporate network on devices that never left the physical protection of the company.
Data loss prevention (DLP) has been the default solution for protecting data. It’s literally in the name. What countless organizations have determined is that DLP doesn’t stop breaches, but it does generate extremely high operational overhead. The same is true for other legacy solutions such as pretty good privacy (PGP) and information rights management (IRM).
