New service offers a ‘new dawn for data loss prevention’

Digital Guardian has announced the general availability of the Digital Guardian Analytics & Reporting Cloud (DG ARC), claimed to be the only data protection solution leveraging the same endpoint agent and management console to deliver data loss prevention (DLP) and threat detection & response (TDR). With DG ARC, customers of Digital Guardian can instantly access a subscription-based, big-data security analytics cloud service.

“We are declaring this a new dawn for data loss prevention because we’re the first security platform to combine the traditional capabilities of DLP with the contemporary features required for endpoint threat detection and response, all delivered in the cloud,” said Ken Levine, president and chief executive officer of Digital Guardian. “A lot has changed in the security world, but one thing remains the same: data is the target. We need security solutions that always put sensitive data at the forefront of organizations’ security efforts and DG ARC achieves that.”

Digital Guardian says that today’s leading security industry analysts understand data is constantly at risk due to insecure insider actions and a variety of external attacks; however, the market offers solutions for only one security challenge or the other. This arbitrary separation of insider versus outsider data protection requirements confuses the buyer and unnecessarily compels them to invest in more solutions than they really need. DG ARC addresses this problem.

DG ARC represents a new class of security solution – threat aware data protection delivered as a subscription-based cloud service.
