Star Tribune Names Code42 a 2019 Top 150 Workplace

Code42 ranks 18 among top 50 midsize companies

Minneapolis — Jun 12, 2019 

Code42, a leader in next-generation data loss protection, has been named one of the Top 150 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune. A complete list of those selected is available at and will also be published in the Star Tribune Top Workplaces special section on Sunday, June 16.

Produced by the same team that compiles the 28-year-old Star Tribune 100 report of the best-performing public companies in Minnesota, Top Workplaces recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota based on employee opinions measuring engagement, organizational health and satisfaction. The analysis included responses from over 140,000 employees at Minnesota public, private and nonprofit organizations.

The rankings in the Star Tribune Top 150 Workplaces are based on survey information collected by Energage, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention.

Code42 was ranked 18 on the midsize company list.

"We're honored to be recognized among Minnesota's Top Workplaces. This year marks the fifth time Code42 has been named to this list of the state's most progressive companies," said Joe Payne, president and CEO of Code42. "We want to thank our employees who give us not only their best each day, but also the edge we need to disrupt and lead in the data security market."

Star Tribune Publisher Michael J. Klingensmith said, "The companies in the
Star Tribune Top 150 Workplaces deserve high praise for creating the very best work environments in the state of Minnesota. My congratulations to each of these exceptional companies."

The company's solution, Code42 Next-Gen Data Loss Protection, enables security teams to more quickly and easily protect their endpoint and cloud data from loss, leak and theft. Unlike traditional data loss prevention (DLP), Code42's solution does not require strict prevention policies that block user productivity. Instead, the solution clears the way for user collaboration by providing security teams visibility to every version of every file — making it quicker and easier to detect and respond to data exfiltration and insider threats in near real-time.

The Code42 Next-Gen Data Loss Protection solution was recently honored with a number of industry awards, including a Stevie Award, two Cyber Defense Magazine 2019 InfoSec Awards, a 2019 Info Security PG's Global Excellence Award and 2019 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards.

To qualify for the Star Tribune Top Workplaces, a company must have more than 50 employees in Minnesota. Over 2,000 companies were invited to participate. Rankings were composite scores calculated purely on the basis of employee responses.
