“Digital Guardian (DG) for Data Loss Prevention (DLP) offers next-generation data protection, purpose-built to stop accidental and malicious data loss by insiders and outside attackers. With Digital Guardian’s acquisition and completed integration of Armor5 for cloud data protection, and Code Green Networks for data discovery, classification and network DLP, DG for DLP is now the most well rounded DLP solution available today. It is the only solution on the market that prevents data loss at the endpoint, network and in the cloud, leveraging the same endpoint agent, network sensor and management console, thus streamlining the level of effort and number of resources required to manage an effective data security program.

Digital Guardian is a recognized “Leader” in Gartner’s 2016 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise DLP and was rated number one in intellectual property protection.

The core business advantage to DG for DLP is the consolidation of security capabilities into a single data protection platform. DG for DLP is the only platform that provides:

  • Network, endpoint and cloud data loss prevention – leveraging the same management console, same endpoint agent and same network sensor
  • Protection from well-meaning and malicious insiders and outside attackers. Competitive DLP solutions continue to focus on protecting data for the insider or compliance use case only. DG for DLP is the only solution that has extended capability to prevent data loss by outside attackers too – leveraging the same technology. To match this capability, buyers would need to purchase two or three different technologies from competitors.
  • Flexible deployment options, including on-premise, as a managed service or as a hybrid of the two.1
