Symantec launches iPad data loss prevention

Android support to follow.

Symantec will offer data loss prevention (DLP) for tablets next year.

The company claimed it was the "first comprehensive DLP solution for the monitoring and protection of sensitive information on tablet computers".

The product will be available early next year and priced per tablet. Android support will be added after launch.

Symantec said its DLP product includes a set of encryption solutions ranging from full disk encryption and removable storage to email and server solutions.

Group president of enterprise products and services Francis deSouza said it was designed for tablets used in the office.

"It is important to know that data is not leaving the iPad so we are launching our DLP technology on to the mobile device."

Symantec also launched a cloud security platform dubbed Symantec O3 which included access control, information protection and compliance control.

It said O3 provided three core security layers: the cloud access control layer leverages an enterprise existing identity infrastructure for authentication and enables authorisation and federation services; the information security layer builds on Symantec's DLP and PGP encryption technologies to detect, block and encrypt confidential information before it is stored in the cloud; and the visibility layer aggregates all cloud-related security events to provide a foundation for a cloud audit.
