DG Mac OS X Agent

Secure Sensitive Data on Mac Machines with Digital Guardian for Apple OS X

OS X – A Popular New Attack Vector

The days of the Apple platform remaining a "walled garden" are coming to a close. As business users have increasingly adopted Mac systems at work, malicious outside attackers are beginning to exploit cracks in Apple's garden walls.


Plus, with more business being transacted and data interactions happening on Mac workstations, the potential of insider data loss is also increasing. It's no longer acceptable to exclude Mac's from your data protection program and with the DG Agent for Mac OS X you don't have to. Digital Guardian offers the most complete support for Mac OS X.

Fill the Mac OS X Security Gap with Digital Guardian

With millions of active agents worldwide, Digital Guardian is the leading platform for advanced data protection. It proactively tags and classifies your most sensitive data and automatically enforces data protection policies based on context. Continuous monitoring, real-time prompts and alerts, and blocking of risky actions provide complete data visibility and control. And since it's software-based, you can install Digital Guardian on Apple OS X desktops with a small memory footprint.

Full visibility into Mac OS X data movement

Effective data-loss risk management
