WALTHAM, Mass., July 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Digital Guardian (DG) today announced that it was named as a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Endpoint Detection And Response, Q3 2018.1 In the report, Forrester Research assessed 12 vendors against 20 criteria, which it grouped into 3 high-level categories: current offering, strategy, and market presence.

According to Forrester, “the endpoint detection and response market is growing because more security and risk (S&R) professionals see endpoint detection and response (EDR) as a way to address their top challenges.” Importantly, the firm stated that the “vendors that can provide depth of visibility as well as detection and response position themselves to successfully deliver remediation, assurance, and certainty to their customers.”

In its evaluation of Digital Guardian, Forrester noted the company’s “file analytics capabilities solve one of the biggest challenges for security teams in identifying sensitive data within their environments.” And in recognizing Digital Guardian as a Leader, the research firm declared that the company “differentiates itself by using these file analytics to help [S&R professionals] understand the sensitivity of data that has been accessed as part of detection and alerting.”

“We’re thrilled to be named a Leader in the Forrester Wave for Endpoint Detection And Response. We’re equally thrilled they acknowledged, in our opinion, the uniqueness of our data-centric EDR approach,” said Ken Levine, president and chief executive officer, Digital Guardian. “Only Digital Guardian’s Data Protection Platform can identify and prevent threats that target sensitive data from both a system and a user perspective. Our ability to see inside a file and understand its contents enables incident responders and threat hunters to triage alerts and hunt for those threats that pose the greatest risk of sensitive data loss.”

The Digital Guardian Data Protection Platform has been architected to protect sensitive data from ALL threats regardless of whether they originate inside or outside the organization. The Platform is the foundation of the DG Endpoint Detection & Response application. DG EDR is delivered via the cloud and priced as a SaaS subscription. For organizations without a formal Security Operations Center (SOC), Digital Guardian can fully manage the infrastructure and EDR program on their behalf through a subscription service called Managed Security Program for Advanced Threat Protection.
