September 25, 2018 / Sean Michael Kerner

Symantec announced a new release of its data loss prevention platform on Sept. 25, providing new security features to help protect users against sensitive data loss. The DLP 15.1 update protects data and documents in Microsoft's Office 365 and Google's G-Suite of cloud-based office applications, as well as on-premises based deployments. The platform now integrates with Symantec's Information Centric Encryption (ICE) for digital rights management (DRM) as well as the company’s Information Centric Analytics (ICA) for User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA), providing additional capabilities to protect against sensitive data loss."Symantec Information Centric Encryption can be automatically enabled by DLP when sensitive information is shared outside the managed environments," Mario Espinoza, vice president of product management at Symantec, told eWEEK.
