For the price in the market, it is a little bit higher than Symantec and Forcepoint. However, I believe, especially in the manufacturing industry, it is the only solution that makes sense for them. If an organization really wants to do the data loss prevention, there's no other choice.

Our customers are happy with the pricing. There are additional costs if you use support contracts directly to Digital Guardian, so they do have professional services. These add-ons are helpful in building out rules, or in the event that the client has custom templated data. The professional services help to create the regular expression engine to detect that data. So, they do have professional services to actually help create these custom data cost-efficient rules.

Pricing and licensing I know mostly for the old versions of Digital Guardian. Now mostly DLP and other security solutions have subscription licensing. Digital Guardian has both, subscription and perpetual licenses, but I think when everything (all technologies) will go to the cloud they will only offer subscriptions. The vendors need to pay to cloud services like Amazon. They will need more money for that because Digital Guardian has the subscription linked to the cloud service. If I compare Digital Guardian with Symantec, the license cost is lower, but McAfee can be cheaper than Digital Guardian. It depends on how many licenses you plan to buy and how big the project is. The cost is not so high as Symantec, but not as cheap as McAfee. They can easily sell the solution for price. It is not the cheapest EOP solution. It's in the middle of the prices.

In market there is multiple solution available as you mentioned. I have evaluated the DLP solution with multiple vendor product. From my point of view you should go with McAfee CASB & FORCEPOINT CASB solutions McAfee is giving feature like · Data loss prevention (DLP) · Security information and event management (SIEM) · Secure web gateway (SWG) · Next generation firewall (NGFW) · Key management service (KMS) · Access management (IDaaS) · Information rights management (IRM) · Enterprise mobility management (EMM/MDM) · Directory services (LDAP) FORCEPOINT · Cloud application discovery · Data classification · Real-time activity monitoring/analytics · Device and location-based access control

Hey Nick, Hate to do this but I am not really an expert on Data loss prevention. My specialty is in cloud engineering with Hyper-V. All of our security is handled by another team. I do know at my last job at Intel we used MacAfee exclusively but that was because we owned the company. Thanks, -Bob
