McAfee Unveils New Data-Loss Prevention Suite at RSA

Security vendor McAfee introduced an agent and server package at RSA this week designed to protect confidential and sensitive data from theft, loss, exposure and other misuse. McAfee says its Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Host takes a holistic approach to securing information, giving enterprises complete administrative control over and visibility into the way data is handled as it travels from end stations to other destinations over e-mail and instant messaging systems and to printed documents, USB drives, CD-ROMs and other devices.

Describing the DLP Host as a key part of its security risk-management portfolio, McAfee says the software will help organizations eliminate the costly data losses that have plagued so many companies and government agencies in recent years.

With host-based data-loss prevention products, companies can enforce security policies even when laptops aren't connected to the corporate network.
