Data Loss Prevention

The Evolution of DLP

The concept of data loss prevention (DLP) has evolved and grown at an unprecedented pace over the last decade. In the beginning, cyber security pioneers began developing technology to help organizations understand what information was leaving their network. Though well-intentioned, customers and providers soon realized that this would not be a simple challenge to solve. Existing traditional DLP solutions inabilities to effectively deliver on-demand stunted the growth of the domain, and it slipped off of the radar of relevance within the cyber security industry. Though companies consistently continued to spend money on the latest technology, it became a fad that seemed to deliver more noise and false positives than value to organizations. Originally built on the premise that perimeter security can resolve most security issues, the technology further fell behind as Insider Threats, Ransomware, and additional risks spanning beyond data leakage continued to rise.
