McAfee on Tuesday announced McAfee Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Gateway, a server gateway that ensures your data doesn’t leave the network if it’s not supposed to.
DLP Gateway, which sits at the server and network gateway layer, is a complement to the company’s Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Host, announced in February, which is installed on the client side. As with DLP Host, Gateway allows administrators to apply defined tags to data to restrict movement.
For instance, if data were copied from a database and into an Excel spreadsheet or an e-mail document, an employee could not send it out of the company, because the tagging rules follow the data, not the original data file, according to Kevin LeBlanc, group product manager for DLP at McAfee.
