Microsoft Teams Up with EMC for Data Security
Expanding their technology partnership, EMC and Microsoft Corp. are bringing the RSA Data Loss Prevention (DLP) classification technology as well as other future information protection products onto the Microsoft platform. Providing an end-to-end solution with fewer point tools to buy, deploy, and manage, the collaboration will enable organizations to centrally define information security policy, identify, and classify sensitive data virtually across the infrastructure, and use a range of controls to protect data at the endpoints, network, and data center.
Enterprises face growing risks of data leaks and an increase in compliance and corporate governance requirements these days. “Embedding information classification and protection capabilities throughout the infrastructure is an ideal way for an organization to prevent sensitive information leaks,” said Gartner analyst Eric Ouellet.
“The approach is about built-in solutions, versus bolted-on This collaboration will help customers secure their environments, boost productivity and reduce IT costs through solutions that incorporate both identity and security technologies.” said Douglas Leland, general manager of the Identity and Security Business Group at Microsoft.
The first deliverable from the expanded partnership is a tight integration between RSA’s DLP Suite and Microsoft rights management technology. Scheduled to ship later this month, version 6.5 of RSA’s DLP Suite will include support for Microsoft Active Directory RMS, part of Windows Server 2008.
