Digital Guardian: Beyond Traditional Data Loss Prevention
“The speed of deployment was shocking; we got data visibility the following day. It seemed to take just 30 seconds, and the POC was up and running on 200 workstations!” exclaimed the IT Security Director of one of the leading Digital Agencies providing knowledge-based marketing solutions. The agency had the tedious task of managing clients’ two Petabytes worth of sensitive customer information, including enormous volumes of PII and PHI, laying its credibility on the line. They decided to opt for Digital Guardian’s Managed Service Program. The agency achieved both expected and unanticipated benefits from Digital Guardian’s turnkey Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solution demonstrating their client’s data protection compliance without increasing their IT personnel.
The above is merely one customer testimony from the numerous success stories fortifying Digital Guardian’s market prominence. A leader in the global data loss prevention market, the company, is chosen by 130 of the Fortune Global 2000 as well as government agencies. Additionally, seven of the top ten global patent holders and seven of the ten largest global automobile manufacturers have relied on Digital Guardian’s Data Protection Platform that secures both structured and unstructured data, everything from executive emails to chemical formulae, to customer data. While breaches are inevitable, losing data is not; by harnessing Digital Guardian’s deep data visibility, real-time analytics, and flexible controls, customers have averted data theft and loss.
Founded in 2003, Digital Guardian’s mission is to provide ubiquitous data protection to organizations and corporations independent of the threat actor, data type, the system, application, device type, or the point of access. The company has enabled data-rich organizations to protect their most valuable assets with either an on-premise deployment or an outsourced Managed Security Program (MSP) or through the firm’s hybrid MSP.

The company’s holistically built next generation data protection platform radically improves defense against all threats.
The platform includes endpoint, network, and cloud data loss prevention along with advanced threat protection, and out-of-the-box data visibility and control. Flexibility is one of the primary characteristics of Digital Guardian’s offerings. The robust and stable platform operates on a variety of operating environments including Windows, Linux, and OSX workstations. Moreover, the platform’s ability to proactively automate classification of sensitive data without predefined policies has immensely helped its customers. Mitch DeBerdt, APAC Region-Vice President of Digital Guardian, asserts, “The company’s value proposition is that it is the only vendor to provide both Data Loss Prevention and Advanced Threat Protection via fully managed services offering.”
For its ability to consolidate security capabilities into a single data protection platform, the company has gained mass recognition and appreciation over the years. For the year 2017 itself, the firm has bagged numerous awards ranging from the consequent ‘Leader’ in the Gartner Magic Quadrant to ‘Coolest Cloud Vendor’ by CRN. The company has always been looking at up-and-coming and complementary technologies to enhance its portfolio and has invested in its technology alliances and partnerships to integrate with leading vendors including FireEye, Palo Alto, Microsoft, Cisco, Fidelis Cybersecurity, HPE, Splunk, IBM QRadar, and Boldon James.
With its headquarters in Massachusetts, United States, the company is operating in more than 60 countries and has over four million endpoints under management across every major industry globally. Its global presence can be attributed to the company's Synergy Partnership Program designed to support partners, VARs, service providers, and resellers. Digital Guardian has invested massively in this global channel program and has created an ecosystem to help its clients prevent, detect, and respond to insider and outsider threats.
