About Us

Continuously reimagining data security for the cloud collaboration era

Code42 protects your data from insider threats

Our Purpose

To secure the collaboration culture — never compromising the speed of innovation or the safety of data.

Our Mission

To speed the time to detect and respond to insider risk.

A New Approach to Cyber Security

We are not new to the cyber security scene — but our approach to insider risk protection is. For nearly 20 years, we’ve been safeguarding the data of more than 50,000 organizations, including 18 of the world’s most valuable brands. And as their needs — and the needs of their workforces — have evolved, so have our data security solutions. 

Today, our team of 500 employees is 100% focused on delivering solutions built with the modern-day collaborative culture in mind. Tracking file activity across computers, email and the cloud, our SaaS-based insider risk solution exposes the high-risk events that represent real threats and need investigation. The game-changer is that it works without locking down access to data. The end result? For security practitioners, it means speed to detection and response. For companies, it means a workforce that is productive and a business that is secure.
