"Data Leakage Prevention is a hot focus area for Chief Information Security Officers as identified in a June 20, 2006 study by Merrill Lynch. In the study, 52% of the CISO respondents identified Leakage of confidential / proprietary information as the biggest current threat to their organization's overall security with the second ranked area earning 24% of the vote. In addition, 62% of those CISO's identified data leakage / extrusion prevention as holding the most promise with the second ranked highly related technology of Digital Rights Management earning 26% of the vote.
