Fortra Achieves Key Customer Milestone, Expanded Offerings for its Digital Guardian Solution


Company’s data loss prevention offering surpasses 5.5 million global users and now offers secure collaboration

MINNEAPOLIS (March 15, 2023)— Fortra announced today strong advances in its Digital Guardian product line. For more than 20 years, Digital Guardian has been helping organizations protect valuable data with its enterprise data loss prevention (DLP) – a solution which has fit perfectly into Fortra’s powerful cybersecurity portfolio and is the cornerstone of Fortra’s Data Protection business. Since its acquisition two years ago, the solution has grown to support more than 5.5 million global users and is now adding security at the file level with secure collaboration.

Bringing Together Comprehensive Data Protection 

The regulatory and threat landscape is evolving so organizations need to collaborate in a seamless and secure environment, knowing their critical data is protected. Fortra’s Digital Guardian offering now includes secure collaboration to help organizations take a zero-trust approach to file security, restricting actions to only authorized users and locking down documents to prevent data leaks. 

“When 74% of breaches involve humans, minimizing the risk of accidental data sharing is a top priority for enterprises,” said Andrew Tewksbury, Managing Director, Data Protection, Fortra. “Adding file-level security from secure collaboration gives customers full control of data visibility and movement, providing an instant undo button, even after data leaves the organization.”  

"Not only are our customers having to navigate the challenging regulatory landscape, but they also have to be prepared for new technologies such as generative AI tools and the implications for data security,” said Tewksbury. “Our enterprise-grade software offers them the control and visibility they need in today’s complex and ever-changing environment.” 

Protecting More Customers Around the World 

Fortra’s Digital Guardian supports 600 customers worldwide and is protecting more than 5.5 million users in industries like insurance, healthcare, manufacturing, government, and media and entertainment where securing data is a crucial business requirement.   

The solution is available as SaaS and is also offered as a managed service. Recognized as easy to deploy and achieving rapid results for customers, Fortra’s Digital Guardian scores highly on product review websites such as G2.  

“It’s clear from the reviews on G2 that our customers are very happy with the performance, functionality, and level of support they receive, and this year we onboarded our largest SaaS customer,” said Tewksbury.
