Protect IP during mergers and acquisitions

Data loss is increasingly common in M&A for the same reason it's increasingly common throughout the business world: More than half of all enterprise data now lives on endpoints, beyond traditional visibility and security tools centered on a network drive or central server. If the target company can't see what its employees are doing with data on their laptops and desktops, then a potential buyer has near zero visibility. IP is what an acquiring company is buying—the info that is critical to the value and competitive advantage gained through a deal. This raises important questions specific to IP:

  • Are you aware of all the IP within the target company?
  • Can you be sure all this IP will come with the deal?
  • Can you be certain it won't leak to a competitor?
  • How quickly can you protect data across companies?

Code42 Next-Gen DLP provides comprehensive data loss protection during mergers and acquisitions. By collecting, protecting and securing all data living on a target company's endpoints —before, during and after a deal, Code42 mitigates the risk of insiders exposing or selling newly acquired IP. Additionally, a cloud-based rollout strategy ensures your expanded users are immediately protected with no impact to productivity.

Next-Gen DLP empowers you to:

  • Quickly become aware of all IP within the target company
  • Ensure no IP is lost during the transition
  • Understand where potential IP is - Who is taking it? Where are they transferring it?
  • Quickly deploy Code42 Next-Gen DLP across all your new users to ensure immediate DLP (Data Loss Protection)
