RSA Integrates Data Leak Prevention With Security Information Management

DLP 7.0 will interact with enVision SIEM tool, allowing IT to identify insider events
RSA today launched a new version of its data leak prevention software that can work with its security information and event management tool.

The new RSA DLP 7.0 Suite also offers some 67 other enhancements, including native database scanning for Oracle and SQL Server environments as well as new automation features that make the DLP software easier to administer.

DLP tools, which help enterprises identify sensitive data and then apply policies for accessing it, have been around for more than two years now. But most DLP tools are not well integrated with SIEM, which means security administrators have to monitor potential insider threats separately from external threats.

The integration between DLP 7.0 and enVision means that RSA security managers can now put internal threats on the screen with potential outsider attacks and prioritize them at the same time.

"If we find a [Microsoft] SharePoint site that shows some suspicious activity, that will become an event on the administrator's screen," says Katie Curtin-Mestre, director of product marketing for the Data Security Group at RSA.

The new database scanning feature will also help organizations identify sensitive data within database fields and allow them to apply specific policies for accessing and handling that information, RSA said.
