Digital Guardian Data Protection Platform offers data protection independent of threat actors, data types, systems, applications, devices or points of access. This cloud-based model unifies endpoint detection, response and data loss prevention to protect against internal threats and accidental data theft, using the same agent. Endpoint detection and response protect against outsider threats and attackers masquerading with stolen credentials, preventing them from accessing or manipulating data. Digital Guardian offers three managed security programs: threat-aware endpoint DLP, endpoint detection and response and threat-aware network DLP.
The entirety of this platform focuses on content, context and user-based classifications. Content-based analysis inspects files to identify, tag and fingerprint sensitive data for the lowest possible false positive results. It also identifies and tags structured and unstructured sensitive data to give visibility into the data source. User-based classification lets users classify sensitive data based on organization-specific business requirements.
Extensive data, user and system events are monitored and recorded for prompt and efficient detection of anomalous behaviors, data manipulation and system modifications. These events are displayed in the new and fully customizable elastic dashboard, the Analyst Reporting Console (ARC). ARC is intuitive, with easy-to-follow drilldown capabilities and filters. All collected data is aggregated in ARC and can be exported as reports that reveal when and how classified data has egressed.
Alarms run based upon server-side rules and support graphically based investigations for better visibility and response times. This approach uncovers powerful information that shows what end-users are doing with data so that administrators and investigative teams can spot and contain policy violations. These investigations can also be used to leverage trend information for policy and rule creation. Alerts can even be issued to the individuals responsible for an unwanted event.
Digital Guardian Data Protection Platform sports many impressive features, including automated adaptive classification and comprehensive visibility. This highly content- and context-aware solution offers everywhere-all-the-time data protection using one, multi-function agent for minimal operational overhead. It is a worthy contender in the DLP space and ideal for anyone looking for data visibility and control, an investigation module, insider/external threat protection and compliance support in a single package.
Pricing starts at a range of $15-$25 per seat, per year and includes 24/7 phone, email and website support.
