You question is confusing..  So, what would you like to do or what do you need with DLP.  WebSense and McAfee are two players in this space.  McAfee, you can manage using ePO.  Have not used WebSense.

What are you trying to do?  Look for how many clients have it installed?
Issues seen?

Yes, you need to tune master image before making linked clones.
(Check partition alignment, defrag boot chain and system areas etc)
