Forrester evaluated leading information leak prevention (ILP) vendors across 39 criteria and found that Vericept and Vontu have established early ILP leadership because of their rich analysis capabilities, while PortAuthority Technologies stands out for its strong strategy scores and unique monitoring capabilities. Solid functionality and rich context-based analysis and detection capabilities earn desktop-centric Verdasys the final slot among the leaders. Each of the remaining vendors are strong performers and shine in particular areas: Tablus and Oakley Networks are strong in administration and reporting as well as ease of deployment. Proofpoint excels in administration and reporting as well as integration. Orchestria is notable for its integration capabilities, accuracy, and desktop-based controls. During the next 24 months, the ILP market will converge with the broader client security suite and content security markets. Longer term, Forrester sees ILP's analysis and classification capabilities playing a stronger role in information management in general — not just in security.
