Cloud DLP rises to the challenge

Monitoring and controlling data that is stored in cloud services and downloaded to devices outside the enterprise network has become critical for CIOs and CISOs in today's environments. To implement effective cloud data loss prevention (DLP), security administrators need to understand which cloud services employees are using and what type of data is being shared, as well as how, when and why this is happening. Unfortunately, for many organizations that's a lot easier said than done. We look at cloud DLP strategies and how new technologies, like cloud access security brokers (CASBs), could offer another layer of protection.

The Cybersecurity National Action Plan, or CNAP, is a continuation of the Obama administration's efforts to increase the federal government's role in cyber regulation and shore up its cyberdefenses. So what does it all mean? The basics that are in the language of the plan, which is not a law, nor is the cybersecurity spending approved by Congress. We look at the dollars and 'sense.'

Like the federal government, many organizations are still in search of effective endpoint and data protection techniques. We continue our Readers' Top Picks series with a look at endpoint protection software. TechTarget polled 700 IT and security professionals at medium-to-large enterprises who told us that they will have active endpoint security projects or technology purchases in the next 12 months. We share the short list compiled from those who indicated plans to invest in endpoint protection software.
