Digital Guardian + Fortra
Fortra has acquired Digital Guardian, the industry’s only SaaS provider of data loss prevention (DLP) solutions for large and mid-sized organizations. Digital Guardian’s solutions give customers visibility and protection of their data across many operating systems and applications. The company also provides a popular managed service that operates as an extension of their customers’ security teams to protect sensitive data from threats originating inside and outside the organization.
The team and solutions from Digital Guardian will fit into Fortra’ data security portfolio, and combine with powerful security solutions such as GoAnywhere, Clearswift, Agari, and Titus. In addition to extending Fortra’ DLP capability, this acquisition further improves the company’s ability to categorize, or classify, data and protect it across a wide set of applications and operating systems.
Our global customers look to us to provide them with powerful solutions and services to support all of their cybersecurity needs, and the data protection expertise the Digital Guardian team brings to Fortra is second to none. As the threat landscape grows and organizations struggle to keep up, the ability for teams to offload deployments as well as the ongoing risk and responsibility to experts is invaluable. We are thrilled to welcome the Digital Guardian team into the Fortra family.
Kate Bolseth, CEO, Fortra
Data breaches remain one of top risks to companies today. Recent headlines serve as an unsettling reminder that even the world’s largest and most influential companies aren’t immune from that threat. It’s why data classification and DLP remain critical components of a comprehensive cybersecurity program and the combination of Digital Guardian and HelpSystems will provide all our customers, regardless of their size, the opportunity to implement world class data protection solutions.
