Every year, Gartner’s Magic Quadrant (MQ) publishes a series of market research documents outlining a market’s direction, maturity and the participants within different market segments.
In 2017 Gartner stopped producing their Magic Quadrant report for Enterprise Data Loss Prevention. Gartner’s stated main reason for this move was that the DLPs covered in their report were in their late stage of maturity. They also soon noticed that some of the larger organizations, on the upper right corner, in fact, struggled with their deployments.
DLP is complex and it’s true that some of those in their report had overstated both the simplicity of their deployments and their level of out-of-the-box accuracy in identifying content and control over various apps. Surprisingly, even today, in 2019, some of those DLP vendors still refer to themselves as the "Gartner DLP Market Leader" based on this somewhat questionable 2016 data.
In any case, Gartner decided it was best to move to Market guides and peer reviews, noting that, “By 2021, 90% of organizations will implement at least one form of integrated DLP, an increase from 50% today." [i]
Their using the word Integrated, highlights the current trend away from complex solutions towards more intuitive solutions.
