The Secret of DLP Migration? It Doesn’t Have to Hurt

Too often, I talk to customers who had been settling previously for a sub-optimal, legacy DLP solution because they feared the migration process was just too complex and frustrating. The perception of DLP migration as challenging is not a secret.

The shift to cloud, hybrid workforces, and digital transformation is forcing everyone to re-evaluate their current DLP approach. Is my DLP scalable, flexible in multiple channels like web and email? Can I spend my energies getting the data security policy just right and then using a single policy everywhere? Or do I have to have separate policies by channel, user group or region? Those are the questions the professional services team often get from our customers and partners.

Six weeks for DLP migration is no exaggeration. I’ve done it with my team for our customers. We’ve summarized our learnings in a new report that walks you through the Six Stages to a Painless DLP Migration. At every step, Forcepoint will lead the way, working closely with your team and our implementation partner.

However, after working on literally hundreds of DLP deployments over the years, Forcepoint has learned a secret or two or six about migrating your current DLP environment. We’ve built over 1,600 policy templates in the DLP product to fit practically every data security and compliance use case imaginable, so you can quickly attain value out of the box. Working closely with our partners and customers, we’ve refined the process and implemented best practices so that you could achieve the DLP migration in as little as 6 weeks.

  • Stage 1 Scope and Project Initiation
  • Stage 2 – Review Your Current Environment
  • Stage 3 – Installation & Configuration
  • Stage 4 – Migration
  • Stage 5 – Monitoring and Testing
  • Stage 6 – Knowledge Transfer

In the end, migration is all about finding the right product, partner, and strategy. When you do, you’ll discover that security can not only protect your people and data, it can also make a competitive difference in your organization.

After all, you’re not just buying a DLP product, you’re buying into a relationship where support is key to migration success. Our guide shows how and where we support you throughout each stage:
