HelpSystems Acquires Enterprise Data Loss Prevention Leader Digital Guardian

HelpSystems announced today the acquisition of Digital Guardian, the industry’s only SaaS provider of data loss prevention (DLP) solutions for large and mid-sized organizations. Digital Guardian’s solutions give customers visibility and protection of their data across many operating systems and applications. The company also provides a popular managed service that operates as an extension of their customers’ security teams to protect sensitive data from threats originating inside and outside the organization.

The team and solutions from Digital Guardian will fit into HelpSystems’ data security portfolio, and combine with powerful security solutions such as GoAnywhereClearswiftAgari, and Titus. In addition to extending HelpSystems’ DLP capability, this acquisition further improves the company’s ability to categorize, or classify, data and protect it across a wide set of applications and operating systems.

This marks the 6th acquisition by HelpSystems in 2021; the company acquired PhishLabs last week.

Macquarie Capital served as exclusive financial advisor to Digital Guardian.
