Digital Guardian Honored as Coolest Cloud Vendor by CRN®


WALTHAM, Mass., Feb. 6, 2017 - Digital Guardian, a next generation data protection platform purpose built to stop data theft, today announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Digital Guardian to its 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors of 2017 list. This annual lineup recognizes the most innovative cloud technology suppliers in each of five categories: infrastructure, platforms and development, security, storage, and software.

Digital Guardian for Cloud Data Protection allows organizations to adopt cloud storage while maintaining the visibility and control needed to comply with privacy and data protection regulations. Digital Guardian for Cloud Data Protection integrates with leading cloud storage providers such as Accellion, Box, Citrix ShareFile, Egnyte, and Microsoft to scan file servers, enabling encryption, removal, or other remediation of sensitive data before the file is shared in the cloud. Data that is already stored in the cloud can be scanned and audited at any time, and user data being placed in cloud storage is scanned in real-time to enforce policies ensuring data control.

"Cloud-based solutions are now a universal staple of IT services and an integral feature of solution providers' portfolios," said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. "It is therefore more important than ever for solution providers to be able to find and choose the best, most capable cloud vendors to partner with for their cloud security. CRN's annual list of the 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors helps them identify and engage these expert suppliers in order to grow and strengthen their cloud businesses. Congratulations to all the vendors, including Digital Guardian, who are named on our 2017 list and have distinguished themselves in this extremely competitive and essential technology area."

The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors are selected by the CRN editorial team for their creativity and innovation in product development, the quality of their services and partner programs, and their demonstrated ability to help customers benefit from the ease of use, flexibility, scalability and budgetary savings that cloud computing offers.

In addition to recognizing cloud technology suppliers for outstanding products and services, 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors serves as a valuable guide for solution providers trying to navigate the cloud market. The list aids prospective channel partners in identifying the vendors that can best help them improve or expand their cloud services.

"As we continue to support our partners’ adoption and shifts to the cloud, it is an honor to be recognized by CRN as a Coolest Cloud Computing Vendor,” said Ken Levine, president and chief executive officer, Digital Guardian. “With organizations responsible for protecting more and more sensitive data, we are proud to support the evolving needs of our customers and partners as they increasingly embrace cloud-based tools, storage and data protection solutions.”

The new 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors list will be featured in the February 2017 issue of CRN and online at
