WALTHAM, Mass. – May 4, 2021 – Digital Guardian, a leader in data loss prevention (DLP) and managed detection and response (MDR), today announced that the Digital Guardian Data Protection Platform has been recognized as a Trust Award winner in the “Best Data Leakage Prevention Solution” category for the 2021 SC Awards. The announcement was made online Monday, May 3, 2021 as part of SC Media’s 2021 SC Awards coverage.
The Digital Guardian Data Protection Platform provides the industry’s deepest visibility across the widest array of operating systems with comprehensive classification and flexible controls, enabling organizations to protect critical data and IP from the endpoint to the cloud. The platform offers forensic logging, auditing capabilities, and the ability to discover, classify, and secure structured data as well as complex sets of unstructured data. Powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS), the Digital Guardian solution requires no on-premises infrastructure, additional headcount, or customization, delivering simplified deployments and lower overhead.
“We are honored to be named, for the second straight year, as the industry’s best DLP solution,” said Mordecai Rosen, Chief Executive Officer, Digital Guardian. “These back-to-back SC Award wins should signal to the market that Digital Guardian continues to innovate around DLP and outpace both traditional DLP providers and emerging vendors.”
Last month, Digital Guardian launched the industry’s first DLP-as-a-Service solution specifically designed to meet the data protection needs of midmarket enterprises. Additionally, the company announced the general availability of its Amazon Macie integration, which expands enterprise DLP from traditional endpoints to AWS S3. Digital Guardian also recently announced they had extended their endpoint DLP to Microsoft Teams, Slack, Skype, and Zoom in response to customer demand for greater visibility and control of top communications and collaboration apps.
Now in its 25th year, 2021’s SC Awards were the most competitive yet, with a record 579 entries. Winners of the Trust Award were chosen by a distinguished group of leading IT security professionals from SC Media's readership. Entrants were narrowed down to a select group of finalists before undergoing a rigorous final judging process to determine the winner of each category.
“Distinct challenges that emerged during the last year resulted in a diverse range of demands from the customer community. A pandemic drove employees home en masse; supply chain attacks left government agencies and businesses reeling; cybercriminals and enemy nation states banked on security gaps during unprecedented times, targeting home networks, health care organizations, and retailers, among many other organizations,” said Jill Aitoro, editor in chief of SC Media. “Winners of our Trust Awards demonstrated remarkable resiliency, adapting to meet evolving requirements of customers.”
