"Concern and visibility over data breaches and data security have moved from IT administrators and managers, past the CIO/CISO office, and are now at the corporate-board level in many enterprises," says Phil Hochmuth, program manager for IDC's Security Products Research. "As enterprises continue to push sensitive data into more types of untrusted environments — via BYOD mobile devices and external cloud services and apps — data loss prevention will have to evolve into an underlying strategy for how these technologies get deployed."
