As part of overall risk mitigation, Would evaluate vendors partially based upon previous success, including market share. What is your DLP market share as designated by a major industry analyst (i.e. Gartner, Forrester, IDC)
1.2Technical Requirements
aIntegrated Management: OEPO
seeks a unified DLP system to minimize IT and operational system management and operational costs. The following questions apply to a full Network, Endpoint, and Large Data Store Discover DLP configurationOHDLP and Networkd DLP Solution
bActive Directory: O
The comapny seeks to minimize IT integrations. Solution should provide simple Active Directory integration (AD2003, 2008)for full integration across, Network, Endpoint, and Large Data Store Discovery DLP.
cWeb Proxies:
The company  uses Microsoft ISA web proxies. Solution should support ISA, forefront / Huawei iCache,
dPrivacy Control:
As per company. privacy policy and experience, contractors and other individuals are not to be given access to other employees’ privacy data. Explain how your DLP solutions provides privacy control with redaction of certain DLP incident data (such as sender email address, username, and sensitive incident content) from specific users such as contractors who may be first-level incident responders/analysts?
eSeverity and Escalations:
As per company. experience, some DLP incidents may be of higher severity than others due to content (such as classified data, VIP PII data) or amount of data in an incident (hundreds or thousands of records as opposed to a handful of records.)
fSeverity Levels:
Does your DLP system provide different incident severity levels?
gAutomatic Escalation:
Does your DLP system support automatic initiation of different notifications and remediation tasks based upon varying DLP incident severity level?
The company. is required to automatically notify IT Security Department for certain Network, Endpoint, or Large Data Store Discovery DLP incidents. The questions below apply to Network, Endpoint, and Large Data Store Discovery DLP incidents, i.e. an employee writes policy violating data to a CD/DVD or emails policy violating data to one’s personal email account.
Does your DLP system support simultaneous notification to IT Security and HR for a particular type of DLP incident?
