According to a recent Info-Tech study, content filtering and data leakage protection (DLP) are not implemented by all small enterprises. Content filtering is important since it bars inappropriate material from entering an enterprise network. Conversely, DLP prevents unauthorized sensitive information from leaving the enterprise network. There are significant differences in these technologies and the rate at which they are currently adopted.
This research note discusses:
- Definitions of content filtering and DLP.
- Content filtering versus DLP adoption rates.
- Company size versus adoption rates of content filtering and DLP.
Content filtering and DLP technologies offer significant risk mitigation opportunities. Understand the factors driving these technologies before making an investment decision.
