What makes the SoftwareReviews Data Quadrant different?   
The study involves gathering intelligence on user satisfaction with both product features and the experience with the vendor. Aggregated emotional response ratings are included in the areas of service, negotiation, product impact, conflict resolution, and strategy and innovation to create a powerful indicator of overall user feeling toward the vendor and its product – all from the software users’ point of view. SoftwareReviews calls this insight the Net Emotional Footprint.  
McAfee DLP, with a Net Emotional Footprint of +97, ranked strongly on data discovery, multiple operating system and device type support with offline protection, removable media, print screen, and copy, paste support.
