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.
Digital Guardian’s DLP solution is already incorporating user and entity behavior analytics, meaning that it looks at the patterns of use, the conditions under which data is used, and the users or entities using the data.
The idea is to reduce user friction (i.e. false positives) and to bolster data protection by taking a holistic view of data use and not just of the data itself, which is only a part of the story. Taken together, this functionality can speed up incident detection and remediation time – perhaps even before an incident has happened, as irregular data use helps you spot an issue before it really starts.
Digital Guardian’s DLP solution currently offers behavior analytics and it’s something we can expect the company to double down on going forward, as Digital Guardian sees these analytics as the future of DLP technology.

DLP solutions are getting more and more advanced, but we should be wary about relying on them too much. Is Digital Guardian’s behavior analytics functionality cool? Yes, it is. But DLP products should be used only as a last line of defense.
One day, we may be able to control DLP entirely from software solutions. Until then, DLP programs will be most successful when they incorporate data classification, which helps narrow the range of data access variables and thus boosts the performance of any DLP solution.
Among the full set of features available in Zecurion’s new DLP product is the ability to perform user behavior analytics to help spot data loss events before they occur.
Zecurion has one of the most robust DLP products on the market and this fact was recently recognized by SC Magazine, who placed the product in its “pick-of-the-litter" category for DLP.

We often hear that businesses are continually cyber insecure or under attack. However, recent penetration testing from Rapid7 shows that businesses are getting better at securing their networks against cyberattacks. While organizations continue to have exploitable weaknesses, attackers are having greater difficulty penetrating deeper into businesses’ networks.
Four zero-day vulnerabilities were discovered in IBM’s Data Risk Manager. While the vulnerabilities are concerning, more so is IBM’s response when addressed. The company simply stated, “It’s out of scope.” – meaning it had no intention to rectify or address the issue.
The Internet of Things is increasingly embedded with our daily lives. While these devices make life more accessible, for every new device, a new attack vector for cyberattackers is created.
