Code42 is on a mission

to speed the time to detect and respond to data risk from insider threats.


Our purpose

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

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 activity across computers, email and the cloud, our SaaS-based insider risk solution surfaces and prioritizes file exposure and exfiltration events that represent real business 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.

Values we live by

As important as it is to get our jobs done, we believe how we go about doing our jobs is equally as important. These company values guide how we work each day:

Put the Customer First
It's simple. Always put the customer first. We care deeply about the customer experience and our part in helping our customers achieve success. This is our main priority.

Don't wait... Every Second Counts
In the race for innovation and securing the collaboration culture, we believe courageous risk-taking is crucial to meeting our customers' needs. We want to be ready to provide the latest cutting-edge products so that our customer’s data is safe. In the Insider Risk space, we are here to lead. That means moving at pace.

Leave the World a Better Place
This is not just a value, it's a purpose. We come together to create, build, impact one another, and to be a part of something greater than ourselves. We care about people, our communities, the planet, and our customers. Giving back is in our DNA. If that sounds like something you believe in, come join us to make the world a better place.

Presume Positive Intent
We prefer to start each interaction from a place of understanding for both our customers and our employees. To 'assume' can mean to suppose, take for granted, or take upon. In the shared meaning of “to suppose,” to presume positive intent is based on probability and evidence. We lead with a positive perspective in all situations, seek clarity, identify truth, and work towards solutions.

Get it Done & Do it Right
To ‘get it done’ has an obvious definition - to do a job with expertise, understanding of the customer needs, and to produce positive results. However, we strongly believe that the behaviors exhibited along the way to achievement are just as important as completing tasks. To ‘do it right’ means we equally value positive workplace behaviors such as teamwork, optimism, enthusiasm, integrity and accountability. Every team member is evaluated on how they get it done & do it right. Doing it Right is half the job.
