Symantec opens up its DLP platform today with the introduction of Symantec Data Loss Prevention 10. As organizations strive to center their security strategies around information, data loss prevention becomes essential. Symantec Data Loss Prevention 10 will allow companies to apply encryption and enterprise rights management (ERM) based on content and will integrate with additional Symantec solutions.

We’re excited that Symantec DLP now has easy hooks into GigaTrust, Liquid Machines, Microsoft, Oracle and PGP Corporation. And, of course, we work well with our own solutions – Control Compliance Suite, MessageLabs Hosted Email Encryption and Symantec Workflow.

The latest version for Data Loss Prevention is version 9.0.

Customers who are eligible for this upgrade will receive upgrade notifications but there will be no license keys. They just need to use the same key that they have for version 8.0.

If customer has just purchased DLP 9.0 and he wants to downgrade to version 8.0, he can use the key for DLP 9.0 to version 8.0.

DLP 9.0 key is backwards compatible to 8.0.
DLP 8.0 key is forwards compatible to 9.0
