Digital Guardian 7.0 Recognized in “The Most Innovative Cybersecurity Technology” Class

Boston and Waltham, Mass. - Tuesday 10th May, 2016 Digital Guardian, a next generation data protection platform purpose built to stop data theft, today announced its Digital Guardian 7.0 solution has been selected as a finalist in “The Most Innovative Cybersecurity Technology” category for the 20th Annual MITX Awards. Held annually by the Massachusetts Innovation & Technology Exchange, the awards recognize excellence in concepts and creations in marketing and technology produced or developed in New England.

Released in 2015, the Digital Guardian Data Protection Platform 7.0 is the only data protection solution in the market today that defends against both insider and outsider threats with just a single endpoint agent. The technology is an extension of Digital Guardian’s proven capability to protect data from insider threats, to now protect systems and data from advanced, external threats.

“Corporations’ sensitive data continues to be a lucrative target for cybercriminals. Given the volume of recent high-profile breaches, companies are quickly realizing that the most effective approach to protect their sensitive information is a data-centric security model,” said Ken Levine, president and CEO, Digital Guardian. “With the Digital Guardian Data Protection Platform, businesses can now properly secure their critical assets against insider and outsider threats, which have become more sophisticated and multi-faceted than ever before. We’re honored to be recognized by MITX for our innovative offering during a time when it’s needed most.”

Since 1996, the MITX Awards have grown to become the largest and most prestigious awards competition in the country showcasing the best technological accomplishments emerging from New England. This year, over 120 senior leaders from Boston businesses judged entries for the 33 MITX award categories.

“For 20 years, MITX has been celebrating the talented and creative minds across New England - innovators that have made this the thriving technology and innovation hub it has become,” said MITX President Amy Quigley. “This year’s finalists are no exception. The ideas keep getting bigger and bolder. We are thrilled to honor their amazing achievements!”

Digital Guardian will be recognized with the other finalists in the category of “The Most Innovative Cybersecurity Technology” at the 20th Annual MITX Awards Ceremony, traditionally attended by over 1,000 of the region’s top marketing, technology and design professionals. Winners will be announced at the ceremony on May 25th at the Westin Waterfront.
