NSFOCUS has been recognized as one of the Representative Vendors in the Report of Tool: Vendor Identification for Data Loss Prevention 2022 1.

The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the process of digital transformation. With the vigorous development of digital economy and information industry, the rapid implementation and application of 5G, zero trust, AI, and blockchain technologies have promoted economic transformation and industrial upgrading. Meanwhile, massive high-value data is constantly generated. How to secure data and protect privacy has become an emerging security topic after network security. It is of vital importance to secure data in its entire lifecyle, including generation, collection, storage, circulation, trading, and destruction of data. Data loss prevention is a must-have in enterprise data security and has again attracted much attention of the Chinese market.
