   “We are implementing new functionality, basing on our clients’ practical tasks. We’ve been working for a while on different issues, in order to provide companies with the ability to protect all PCs, not only included into Windows-infrastructure ones. For example, last year, all of the DLP tools became available for Linux. MacOS support is the next step, and we are ready to offer complex control of user activity” – comments Alex Parfentiev, the leading analyst at SearchInform.
For macOS-oriented “SearchInform DLP” users advanced functionality is already available: users’ cards, incident management, more than 30 report templates.
