Policy managers take your business rules about the information being managed, then implement those rules to move, store and delete information in the enterprise. Trying to find a policy manager can be tricky because they are not necessarily discrete hardware or software products. It's really a feature that is built into numerous solutions. Generally speaking, policy managers will run in software on host servers or on appliances within the network or on storage subsystems.
