Many of our readers use Data Loss Prevention products as a mechanism to identify sensitive data-at-rest on workstations, servers, databases and similar. Earlier today, I stumbled across an open source application known as OpenDLP. I professionally recommend that users have a DLP product in your toolkit. As many of the tools are commercial in nature, this product may be a excellent choice for home use (or at least when you head home for holidays and are asked to fix the family computer).
While reviewing information on the OpenDLP website, I saw that the developers released a new version of OpenDLP and a virtual machine OpenDLP that corrects a small number of glitches.
More information on this product is available at code.google.com/p/opendlp/ . Any of our readers use this product and able to comment on how well it works, false positives and the like?
