List Highlights the Most Innovative Vendors in the Virtualization Space

Waltham, Mass., May 21, 2015 - Digital Guardian, the only endpoint security platform purpose built to stop data theft, today announced it has been named to The Channel Company's 2015 CRN® Virtualization 50. The annual list recognizes channel-friendly companies that provide some of the most innovative virtualization technology available.

Selected by CRN editors, the 2015 CRN Virtualization 50 highlights vendors that are addressing a growing market need for state-of-the-art virtualization solutions. Building virtualized environments is the first step in taking customers to the cloud. Selecting the right virtualization tools puts solution providers on the path toward successfully building virtualized environments that solve customers’ problems. The list aims to help solution providers identify and evaluate virtualization technology vendors and programs that will enable them to grow their business.

Through Digital Guardian’s data-aware technology approach – including the latest version of its endpoint security platform, Digital Guardian 7.0, businesses can be rest assured their valuable, sensitive data is guarded against both internal threats and external attacks, including advanced malware. With more than 52 million terabytes of sensitive data protected daily by Digital Guardian agents, the company’s solutions offers deep visibility, fine-grained control and comprehensive data protection coverage to stop data theft.

Digital Guardian agents support multi-session and multi-user policies in virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environments hosted on Citrix, VMware, and MS Hyper-V servers. Using these agents, corporations can audit and enforce policies in physical or virtual environments while ensuring data use and movement are managed appropriately for employees, third parties, and administrators.

Digital Guardian virtual agents continuously monitor and log all data interactions with evidentiary-quality forensics, inspect and tag sensitive data via automated rules or user input, enforce context-aware data access and control policies, and manage data egress across all data interactions

“Virtualization is one of the hottest segments of the IT industry. As virtualization adoption continues to flourish, our Virtualization 50 list serves as a valuable resource in the purchasing process,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “These virtualization vendors definitely deserve to be on the channel’s radar. We congratulate the winners and look forward to their continued success.”

“Digital Guardian is committed to providing the highest level of data protection across physical, virtual and mobile environments,” said Doug Bailey, chief strategy officer at Digital Guardian. “We’re honored to be named to CRN’s 2015 Virtualization 50 and look forward to continuing to work with trusted channel partners who share our core belief: while system breaches have become inevitable, losing sensitive data is not.”
