BEDFORD, Mass., June 26, 2009 - 

RSA, The Security Division of EMC (NYSE: EMC), today announced that it is positioned in the Leaders Quadrant within Gartner’s 2009 Magic Quadrant for Content-Aware Data Loss Protection report by Eric Ouellet and Paul Proctor. The positioning is based on RSA’s ability to execute and the completeness of its vision.

According to Gartner, companies that are placed in the Leaders Quadrant of the report "have demonstrated a good understanding of client needs and offer comprehensive capabilities in all three functional areas of DLP solutions – network, discovery and endpoint – either directly or through well-established partnerships and tight integration. They offer aggressive road maps, and they will need to execute on those road maps, fully incorporate enhanced features currently in development and address evolving market needs to remain in the Leaders quadrant."

In the report, Gartner also said: "The market for content-aware DLP continues to show significant market growth despite difficult economic conditions. The reasons for the continuing strength of this market include the growing maturity of the available content-aware DLP technologies and buyers’ awareness that these technologies can help them to address regulatory compliance requirements, which are actually increasing in the downturn."

The RSA® Data Loss Prevention Suite helps uncover business risk associated with the loss of sensitive data and dynamically lowers that risk through policy-based remediation and enforcement of controls across the enterprise. RSA DLP is one of the industry’s most comprehensive and accurate data loss prevention solutions and is designed to provide customers with the most robust library of policies to secure data for both compliance (PCI, privacy laws) and intellectual property security drivers. The DLP Suite includes RSA® Data Loss Prevention Endpoint, RSA® Data Loss Prevention Network, and RSA® Data Loss Prevention Datacenter, with overall management of the Suite provided by the RSA® DLP Enterprise Manager.

"We are pleased that the report from Gartner positioned RSA in the Leaders Quadrant for DLP, and we are committed to building on our leadership position in this strategically important area of our business," said Tom Corn, Vice President of Product Marketing at RSA, The Security Division of EMC. "Through our built-in approach to information protection, we look forward to continuing to provide our customers with one of the most robust and complete DLP solutions to discover and secure sensitive information in the datacenter, on the network and on endpoints throughout their organizations."
