Digital Guardian Secures $66 Million in New Funding



We’ve raised $66 million in new funding, marking the largest single round of investment in company history and providing the resources needed to make our vision of ubiquitous data protection a reality. Read on for more.

2015 has been a big year for Digital Guardian: we acquired two companies providing leading-edge network DLP and application whitelisting solutions, hired over 100 new employees, opened offices in Sunnyvale, California, Salt Lake City, Utah, and Reston, Virginia, grew bookings by 50% over 2014 while gaining more than 200 new customers, and continued to grow our partnerships and alliances through a strategic alliance with Atos, technology partnerships with Splunk and Blue Coat, and the launch of global channel program DG Synergy. After record growth and many big announcements to go along with it, we’re still set on ending the year on a high note – and that note comes in the form of the announcement that Digital Guardian has secured $66 million in new funding!

Coming from leading technology venture capital firms such as LLR Partners, MassMutual Ventures, and Siemens Venture Capital as well as previous investors, this funding marks the largest single round of investment in company history and provides Digital Guardian with the resources needed to deliver on our vision of expanding our best-in-class DLP offering to a platform providing ubiquitous data protection that functions independently of data type, device, user, location, or OSI layer.

Here’s looking forward to a new year with continued growth and momentum!
