Symantec DLP 11.5 is Released- Much Awaited Websense Integration & Tablet Support is Now Possible

Among the new feature, there are two which will really help the product grow in all direction.

1. Integration with Websense (Websense URL filtering)- Although this integration was technically possible earlier as well but not supported by Symantec. Now, officially, it's supported by Symantec. This feature uses ICAP protocol. This integration is all about the good and healthy competition between Symantec and Websense.

2. DLP for tablets- Looking at the growth of tablets in organization and concept of BYOD (bring your own device) that organizations are promoting, DLP for tablets is the need of the hour. Tablet prevent for web currently supports Apple iPad iOS4 and iOS5 which can be used for transmitting sensitive information over HTTP, HTTPS and FTP. Tablet prevent can be used to secure email which can be sent through a tablet using MS Exchange ActiveSync.

Other new things involve - the supported version of Oracle 11g is now

One key new feature for endpoints is- agents can now detect policy violation based on metadata. For example- for .pdf file, policy can be created based on the fields like, author, title, creation date etc. This feature, if leveraged properly, can provide subtantial performance enhancement.

Thanks In Advance

For us the biggest change was the ability to only count unique matches.

Here is a list of the best features as well as a few undocumented ones.

  • Unique Match Counting for data identifiers
  • Roles based Response Rule execution (Allows you to specify what response rules a role can see or execute)
  • LDAP integration to the UI, no longer need the properties files and the password is within the UI. (Upgrade will break your existing one, need to rearrange the order of the lookup)
  • Tablet coverage
  • Exchange scanning directly from the UI, no scanner needed.
  • Websense Proxy coverage

Please make sure to mark this as a solution

to your problem, when possible.
