RSA, the security division of EMC, and endpoint security firm Lumension have announced a partnership aimed at helping organisations better protect and share sensitive information.

The companies plan to expand information-aware capabilities into the IT infrastructure by embedding parts of the RSA Data Loss Prevention Suite into Lumension products.

The aim of the collaboration is to provide organisations with a single, simpler, lower-cost way of securing and managing rapidly growing amounts of digital data, they said.

"By building data loss prevention technology into the infrastructure, RSA and Lumension will offer data protection from gateway to endpoint with common policies and classifications of sensitive data," the companies said.

Benefits will include a single console that will increase visibility across data location, policy and movement while reducing administration.

"The collaboration is designed to provide the capability to deploy granular policies on the endpoints without the need to install multiple agents, resulting in simplified security operations and management," said Charles Kolodgy, research vice-president for security products at analyst firm IDC.
