forrester-wave-leader_0We’re excited to announce that Symantec has been recognized as a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Data Loss Prevention Suites, Q4 2016, and was top-ranked across all three high-level categories: Current Offering, Strategy, and Market Presence.

What’s most striking to us about this year’s report is how dramatically the DLP vendor landscape has changed in the past six years. We believe that Symantec has been able to stay ahead of the pack thanks to the world’s largest team of R&D experts working on the next generation of DLP technology.

Continued innovation in data loss prevention
