Oracle IRM and Symantec DLP version 10 integration announced
By Simon Thorpe on Oct 27, 2009
This morning Symantec announced the latest incarnation of their data loss prevention (DLP) technology, version 10. DLP technologies allow organizations to do discovery and monitoring of enterprise perimeters to detect the flow of sensitive information. When DLP detects something that is deemed confidential it can take some action upon it, typically this is in the form of blocking the information from continuing to be transmitted. However combining DLP with IRM means you don't have to restrict the end user by blocking their attempts to collaborate. Instead encrypt and protect the document or email so that it can be shared. IRM ensures only authorized users have access and provides advanced security controls such as revocation to the information, even after it has left the control of your enterprise networks.
We've been working with Symantec over the past month to build an integration between Oracle IRM and DLP creating the most powerful security solution of any IRM and DLP combination. Oracle IRM is the leading rights management solution for enterprise-scale document and email security. Combining these features with Symantec's leading DLP solution means customers can now have rich monitoring and detection capabilities. Instead of blocking attempts to share valuable data, this solution allows it to happen securely. We first demonstrated this capability at Oracle Open World and if you were not able to attend, we've uploaded some video demonstrations to our YouTube channel.
