Threat Prevention

Everyone is focused on stopping threats from coming in, but most of those technologies are unable to understand which data is sensitive and which isn't, according to Marcus Brown, vice president of global channels for Digital Guardian.

A defense strategy focused purely on building walls to stop threats from getting in will eventually falter against a well-resourced enemy, Brown said. And once a bad actor gets through the perimeter, Brown said they would have carte blanche to take whatever they want.

It's therefore vital, as a last line of defense, to have something watching the crown jewels of the enterprise, understanding what data or information is sensitive, and protecting it, said Brown, who expects new compliance mandates will drive organizations to allocate more of their budget for the protection of data.
