Just a quick note that I have a short article up on Network World on DLP.

I answered the question, “With all the recent news about acquisitions in the DLP space, I’m unsure if now is the time to select a solution or if I should wait. How can I tell the right time to get into DLP?”

A short clip:

The decision to invest in Data Loss Prevention (DLP) should be based on how ready you are as an organization, not the internal wranglings of a young market in the midst of a growth spurt. I like to describe DLP as an adolescent market- it’s one that provides high value even though the market and the solutions aren’t as mature as some other areas of technology.

(Full disclosure- I was connected to Network World by Reconnex, but I don’t currently have a business relationship with them and I was not paid by anyone for the article).
