According to Gartner’s Magic Quadrant, Digital Guardian has improved its completeness of vision and ability to execute since its 2014 positioning.
The report lists Digital Guardian as providing one of the strongest sets of capabilities for the support of data protection across multiple media and device types.

“Over the past year alone, there’s been an alarming number of cyber threats originating from mobile devices, regardless of operating system,” said Connie Stack, CMO of Digital Guardian. “It’s now more important than ever that IT protect a company’s most valuable asset – its sensitive data – via mobile, before the next employee falls victim to a malware-ridden app, unsecure Wi-Fi connection, or other danger. For this reason, Digital Guardian has prioritized mobile data protection and will continue to safeguard company data across all endpoints.”
