Data Visibility, IP Protection, and Secure Partner Collaboration

This global 100 engineering and electronics conglomerate had recently suffered a loss of proprietary intellectual property. Their highly competitive market required constant innovation, and their workforce had expanded to thousands of scientists, engineers, and technicians on five continents. With IP valued at over $30 billion USD, they understood they were an attractive target for IP theft. Now it had occurred, with no proof of who was the perpetrator. The company began an initiative to control more closely its IP and trade secrets, and turned to Digital Guardian® for assistance.
