GTB Gets the W-I-N for DLP in 2019
GTB Technologies was recently crowned the winner of Acquisition International’s cyber security award in the data loss prevention (DLP) category for its anti-malware and insider threat capabilities. AI noted specifically that, “[o]ver the past 14 years, GTB Technologies has delivered unparalleled innovations to the data protection and governance market,” which has culminated in a “data recognition platform that couples the power of proprietary intelligent processes with mathematical science.”
For these reasons, GTB is a top choice among those who take data protection seriously and is used by major players across industries, including finance, healthcare, defense contractors, and government.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking DLP is a quick-fix solution for data classification. DLP is only part of the story. It’s hard to know what data needs to be protected from loss if there is no scheme in place to determine data sensitivity, which is why classification is necessary and should ideally be done prior to implementing a DLP solution. Luckily, GTB Technologies offers solutions for both, meaning it might be worth a look for any organization currently completing a data classification guided implementation.

Digital Guardian has been a data loss prevention (DLP) leader for some time, so we’d all do well to listen when it says the future of DLP will focus on data, user behavior, and conditions of use.
Symantec recently announced new features for its Integrated Cyber Defense Platform aimed at boosting DLP strategies in the cloud via zero trust technologies from Luminate, which was acquired by Symantec back in February.
Using the cloud has become second nature for today’s organizations, and in most cases, cloud enthusiasts report an overall security improvement. However, DLP remains an issue.
Fake apps that look real have been on the rise lately as a means of stealing sensitive data. However, Symantec has sought to defend against this technique with its Threat Aware Data Protection DLP product.
On March 6, 2019 Virtru, a data loss prevention (DLP) vendor specializing in encryption, was awarded Federal Risk and Authorization Management (FedRAMP) approval – the barrier to entry for use by governmental organizations.
According to a recent survey by data backup and management company Commvault, IT departments are not ready to lead digital transformation. I think a major impediment is in how IT departments, especially infrastructure managers, view data.
