From remote users to portable storage, the endpoint is not only a significant repository for sensitive information, it's where users spend much, if not most, of their time accessing the data. But endpoint DLP is also the least mature segment of this increasingly popular class of technology. Due to processor and memory limitations it's where we see the biggest differences between competing products, and the greatest feature and performance constraints. We also see competing solutions targeting the endpoint from different genealogical backgrounds, with offerings from traditional DLP, traditional endpoint, portable device control, and even encryption ...
