Enables organizations to monitor the network and protect themselves from data leakage
The initial setup process is very simple and easy. We have no issues to do it for ourselves or our customers. The deployment takes less than 20 days. The integration is very simple. However, first, we must understand what we want to have on our network and what we want to prevent. If we don't have this information before we start the configuration, we will be lost. We must know what kind of protection we need in our company. We have LGPD in Brazil. It is similar to GDPR in Europe. It prevents any personal information from being linked to other companies without permission. We have to take care of the personal information of our customers, employees, and partners. To deploy the tool, we must understand what we need to do. We must download the whole package and have our infrastructure ready to receive it. We must get the SSL certification and start to configure our platform. When the process is finished, we must roll out a small portion of our network to ensure everything will be well. After that, we must do the full rollout.

An affordable and easily scalable tool that decreases the risk of data leakage in an organization
It is important to me that Purview delivers data protection across multi-cloud and multi-platform environments. Otherwise, we would have to have multiple DLP solutions. It is very important to me that the solution was built taking into account critical regulations from around the world. It makes it easier to templatize deployments for data loss prevention. I use the tool for data loss protection. The tool works fairly well in remediating policy violations. There could be a little bit of improvement in policy tips. Policy tips aren't consistent across different experiences. The tool has greatly impacted the visibility of most of our customers. Some of our customers didn't realize they had a lot of PII data being sent externally until after the tool was implemented. Later, they become more aware. The solution enables us to show our compliance as close to real-time as possible. It has affected our meetings with compliance regulators. We don't save time and money directly. The tool saves us time and money by saving on fines for regulatory compliance violations. Without the solution, one of our customers would have been fined about $2,500,000. It is important to me that the product can connect to iOS, Mac, and Android devices, as well as data in other SaaS apps. It's not a complete solution unless it can be used everywhere. We are implementers. People evaluating the product must understand the types of data and the compliance models they must adhere to. Overall, I rate the product an eight out of ten.

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:


"The most valuable feature is we can develop what we want. If we have an old or new requirement, they are able to support us to develop it all within one month."
"The main thing that I like about GTB is that it has a single agent for DLP and data classification. You can use the same agent. In terms of licensing too, it has a single license. When it comes to data classification, it supports open-source document platforms such as ChainSoft and OpenOffice."
"They have a fingerprint feature that is very awesome. OCR is very awesome to have too."
"The classifications in place are very helpful in making policies for ensuring sensitive data can be contained."
"This solution helps classify what is confidential and what is not, allowing products to be installed at home if they do not contain confidential information."
"The product has a centralized console for everything."
"The monitoring features are valuable."
"I am impressed with the tool's ease of deployment."
"The product has improved compliance and confidence. We are aware of the data that is leaving our organization. It provides confidence in data management and information storage."
"It has helped our clients to reduce the time to action on insider threats because it can be integrated."
"I rate Microsoft Purview Data Loss Prevention's stability a ten out of ten."
"For Purview's natively integrated compliance across Azure, Dynamics 365, and Office 365, I would give it a 10 out of 10. It provides all the insights and information."
"If we can prevent information from going out, eventually, when a regulator is asking about our security measures, we can show what we've been doing."
"One of the valuable features of Purview is the ability to create a legal hold on a user's account within the compliance portal. That's pretty useful when it comes to any litigation or if you want to redeem the content within a mailbox, OneDrive, or a generic public SharePoint site."
"The product is easy to configure."
"We can use Microsoft Purview Data Loss Prevention to manage devices and site policies."


"To stay competitive, they should expand to smartphones."
"The performance could be better."
"The product needs to improve its support so that users can just log in and create tickets as opposed to sending emails. Sending emails is difficult to track. It also needs to work on its analytics platform."
"The solution’s performance must be improved."
"The tool should include better AI features."
"It would be great if they have information rights management (IRM) on the same agent."
"They have a roadmap for the Linux platform and Mac as well, and in the next quarter, they might have patch management also for Windows. However, they don't have that much for Linux and Mac. So, we need those things in Linux and Mac as well."
"The solution could improve by providing additional availability requirements."
"There is a lot of ambiguity when you are setting up labels, such as sensitive information labels. It is a little daunting at first if you don't have prior knowledge, and there is a little bit of a learning curve for setting up the labels. Some of the setup wizards could be more helpful from an AI perspective. They can streamline the setup through more AI technologies so that you don't have to jump through so many hoops and different menus and dropdowns. It would be useful to have a setup wizard that is more hands-off and engaging for setting up the information type labels. If you tell them this is what we're trying to protect, it should basically start to lead you down that path of best practices. Such a feature would be great."
"The solution should provide better integration with other systems."
"The AI advancements can improve the false positives."
"A site can have different containers where you store data. We have always wanted to apply compliance, labels, and policies at the container level, rather than to an outer shell or at the site level. That is something we have been looking forward to and I believe Microsoft is already planning something like that."
"The platform can be challenging to navigate and has the potential for improvement."
"There is no AIP for Linux systems. That's a setback. Another thing it's lacking is libraries to work with Python. It has libraries for C# and C++, for example, but not for Python and, these days, Python is very useful."
"The scalability, in terms of the portal, could be more user-friendly. Sometimes I have faced difficulties in identifying the options."
"I would like Microsoft Purview Data Loss Prevention to be on the source code or SQL databases. It is difficult to do classification and labeling when you have a third-party source code or a third-party Oracle database. It is seamless when it comes to Microsoft documents but is not so with third-party source codes. Microsoft needs to work on it a little bit more."

Pricing and Cost Advice

"The tool has a fair price."
"They offer a lot of features in a single bundle. So, if you want to remove some features from GTB, you can remove those. You don't need to buy those, and the price will reduce accordingly. I am very happy with the pricing."
"When comparing GTB Technologies Inspector to other solutions you receive a good value for your money when considering all the features and benefits."
"The tool is not expensive."
"Its price is very reasonable and competitive."
"The tool's pricing is affordable and based on the number of endpoints."
"The product has the best price-to-performance ratio."
"I am satisfied with the tool's pricing."
"Microsoft Purview Data Loss Prevention is part of a bundle and is not sold as a standalone product."
"We are using the E3 license for Microsoft 365 with the E5 compliance license add-on."
"The pricing is reasonable."
"It's a little bit pricey compared to competitors, but it's not too high."
"It is a part of our Microsoft licensing. We pay for a yearly renewal. Its price is reasonable for the size of the organization we are. It is fairly competitive, and you get what you pay for. We have an E5 license, and a part of understanding the E5 license is to see what all you get with it. If you really look at it from that standpoint, you get a lot of value. You have Defender and all its security features in there as well. Their licensing is fairly flexible. They have different programs. We've seen ones where you could pay for up to three to five years in advance. There is also a monthly pay-as-you-go type of deal, but we're doing a yearly renewal and fixing the budget."
