RSA, The Security Division of EMC, announced enhancements to the RSA Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Suite to lowers the cost of protecting sensitive data.

RSA’s DLP suite of data security products  are engineered to discover, monitor and protect sensitive data from loss, leakage or misuse whether in a datacenter, on the network, or out at the endpoints.

With the new features for discovery, remediation and integration with the RSA enVision Platform, the RSA DLP 7.0 Suite is designed to reduce the total cost of ownership of DLP by automating the protection of sensitive data and reporting, lower risk by protecting more sensitive data in more places, and simplify security operations, the company said.

"Companies of all sizes, in all geographies, and across all industries face growing risks of data leaks and an increase in compliance and corporate governance requirements, along with needing to stretch their IT security dollars and human resources as far as possible." said Tom Corn, vice president of Product Marketing at RSA, The Security Division of EMC."

"The RSA DLP 7.0 Suite is one of a series of current and future releases aimed at realizing our vision of providing customers with a holistic approach to securing identities, information, and the infrastructure," he said.

With RSA DLP 7.0 Suite sensitive data at rest can now be moved or quarantined automatically, reducing administrative costs, and end-users can apply self-remediation for sensitive emails quarantined due to violations.  In addition, the DLP Suite is engineered to generate and send reports automatically to the appropriate personnel. These new automation enhancements, according to the company, can help reduce the time spent handling security incidents by up to 45 percent.

The new features will also help organizations discover structured content in Oracle and SQL Server databases with native scanning and fingerprinting. Additional enhancements also enable the suite to support CATIA, a multi-platform commercial software suite used in the aerospace, automotive, and discrete manufacturing industries. 

The RSA DLP Suite 7.0 is generally available now. Availability of its integration with RSA enVision technology is planned for this quarter.
