NEW YORK and SAN FRANCISCO -- PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC), and Vontu, Inc., the leader in Data Loss Prevention solutions, today announced a strategic alliance to help enterprise clients detect and prevent the loss of confidential information. This alliance, between a global leader in advisory services and an industry leader in data loss prevention, signals the growth and maturity of the data loss prevention marketplace.

Through the alliance relationship, PwC will provide professional services to help clients assess and minimize their risk of data loss as well as help assess and maintain compliance with data security and privacy regulations. When PwC performs risk and assessment services, its clients will now have the option of performing an automated data loss risk assessment using Vontu's data loss prevention platform, Vontu 7.

Vontu 7 enables organizations to protect confidential data anywhere -- at rest, in motion or at the endpoint. New features in Vontu 7 include content-aware monitoring of USB drives and other removable storage devices, new capabilities to support the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), Asian language detection, and discovery of confidential data at rest in Lotus Notes and SQL databases.

"With ever-increasing concerns regarding customer data exposures, compliance violations and intellectual property loss in digital environments, organizations are now, more than ever, looking to data loss prevention technologies to reduce risk. By working closely with Vontu, we now have the technology platform to create efficient rules and policies to address data loss risk holistically," said Gerard Verweij, principal, PricewaterhouseCoopers.
