Code42 Wins Two Cyber Defense Magazine 2019 InfoSec Awards

Code42 Next-Gen Data Loss Protection earns recognition for innovative approach to DLP and insider threats

Minneapolis — Mar 4, 2019 

Code42, the leader in next-gen data loss protection, was named a winner of the Cyber Defense Magazine 2019 InfoSec Awards in the categories of Next-Gen Data Loss Prevention and Next-Gen Insider Threat Detection. Award recipients were selected by a panel of security professionals with the goal of recognizing information security innovators and organizations poised to become the next generation of industry leaders. Winners were announced today at the RSA Conference 2019, where the company is showcasing its new Code42 Next-Gen Data Loss Protection solution in booth #S 1359 at the Moscone Center South Expo. RSA takes place in San Francisco, March 4-8.

"We are honored to receive the InfoSec Awards and be recognized as an industry innovator," said Joe Payne, Code42's president and CEO. "Companies are fed up with their painful legacy data loss prevention (DLP) deployments. The constant tuning of policies and exceptions, and ongoing productivity roadblocks have essentially left their IP exposed. This is why we rewrote the rules for traditional DLP. Code42 offers a simpler, policy-free way to secure all cloud and non-cloud data."

Code42 Next-Gen Data Loss Protection enables security teams to more quickly and easily protect their endpoint and cloud data from loss, leak, misuse and theft. Unlike traditional DLP, Code42's cloud-native solution works without requiring the strict prevention policies that can block employee productivity. Instead, the solution clears the way for innovation and collaboration by providing visibility to every version of every file. Backed by this file focus, the solution quickly alerts security teams to where data lives and moves, when it leaves their organization, and who has access to it. This approach allows them to monitor, detect and respond to suspicious file activity in near real-time.

"Code42 won two Cyber Defense Magazine InfoSec Awards after we reviewed nearly 3,000 infosec companies, globally, because they are an innovator on a mission to help stop breaches and get one step ahead in a landscape of rising cyberthreats," said Gary S. Miliefsky, publisher at Cyber Defense Magazine.

The Code42 Next-Gen Data Loss Protection solution was recently named a Gold Winner in the 2019 Info Security PG's Global Excellence Awards and the 2019 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards. For a complete list of Code42 achievements, visit the Honors page on the company's website.
