How we are different

Insider threats are one of the biggest dangers to corporate data and Code42 is delivering innovative ways to combat the problem head on. Code42’s newest insider risk detection capabilities are game changers for resource-strapped information security teams. Code42 protects IP and mitigates data risk, including during employee off-boarding. It surfaces departing employees’ file exfiltration activities via web browsers, email, removable media, personal and cloud sync accounts, and other app uploads; investigates departing employees’ historical file exfiltration activity in 1-, 7-, 30- and 90-day increments; provides a view of exfiltrated files to quickly determine the severity of the behavior and escalate the response; detects mass deletions on laptops or cloud and recovers impacted files; and customizes alerts about high-risk file movements from resignation to departure date.

Code42 is delivering to security teams powerful detail about risks to company data – and driving tremendous efficiency. Code42 offers first-of-its-kind visibility into the destination of an exfiltrated file. Code42 shows the tab title and specific tab URL that was active at the moment file exfiltration occurred, which means security teams can plainly discern personal versus professional accounts and instantly understand the risk to data. With just two clicks, security teams can definitively answer, “where’d my file go?” and take action, if necessary. This is just one way that Code42 provides visibility, gives high-fidelity alerts and actionable information to help address an organization’s data risks.

Despite the best data loss prevention efforts, high-value data loss happens every day. That’s why Code42 has taken a different approach to data security that has challenged the status quo in the market and delivered ROI. According to the 2019 Forrester Report: The Total Economic Impact™ Of Code42, organizations using Code42 to protect their data reported a $444,749 savings in data loss investigations and 230% ROI.
