DLP Will Always Be Leaky
Data leak protection (DLP) technology is valuable, and will be widely used. All the same, it's important to get expectations right.

DLP will always be leaky. It will be useful to stop most employees from doing things they shouldn't do, most of the time. But in particular, it won't stop malicious and badly intended people from doing things they shouldn't do.

There are two reasons for this:

  • Security follows functionality. For the sake of productivity and convenience, users will be allowed to do things that make it hard to stop data leaks.
  • Rapid change of technology. New ways of getting out information are appearing all the time, and it's hard for vendors to keep up. To see examples, check our recent bulletin, Compliance in a Web 2.0 World.

Cost-Effective Alternatives to Exchange
Wednesday, June 18, 2008
10:00am Pacific, 1:00pm Eastern, 6:00pm UK, 7:00pm CET. One hour.

Microsoft Exchange is the dominant messaging and collaboration server for in-house organizational use. However, some organizations are seeking alternatives to Exchange--perhaps because they are cost-sensitive, have a Linux strategy, or need to deploy larger mailboxes. In this webinar, Ferris analyst Richi Jennings and Sina Miri of PostPath map the landscape for Exchange alternatives. The webinar concludes with a Q&A period.
