Digital Guardian Earns Highest Possible Scores in the Intellectual Property Protection, Productivity and Encryption Criteria

WALTHAM, Mass., November 8, 2016 - Digital Guardian, a next generation data protection platform purpose built to stop data theft, today announced that the company was named a “Leader” in the Forrester Research Inc. report, The Forrester Wave™: Data Loss Prevention Suites, Q4 2016, achieving the highest score possible in the Intellectual Property Protection, Productivity and Encryption criteria.

According to the Forrester report, authored by senior analyst Heidi Shey, “The DLP suite market continues to grow because more S&R pros see DLP as a way to enforce policies for compliance, privacy, and intellectual property (IP) protection. This market growth is largely because DLP suites can provide DLP capabilities across all channels of data loss under a single console to apply consistent policies.”

Forrester’s evaluation process places vendors in one of four designations: Leaders, Strong Performers, Contenders, and Challengers – which are evaluated based on each vendor’s strengths and weaknesses in their Current Offering, Strategy and Market Presence.

Digital Guardian was one of only three vendors to be designated as a “Leader.”

According to the Forrester report, “Digital Guardian brings together two in-demand enterprise security capabilities today: DLP and endpoint visibility and control (EVC)… Firms that require DLP across Windows, Mac, and Linux OSes or have an interest in DLP-as-a-managed-service should consider Digital Guardian.”

“We are pleased that Forrester has named Digital Guardian a Leader in Data Loss Prevention,” said Ken Levine, chief executive officer, Digital Guardian. “Our next generation threat aware data protection platform protects customers from both insider and outsider attacks using the same management console, appliance and agent, and is well positioned to meet corporations’ data protection needs without slowing the pace of their business.”
