Bitglass' Total Data Protection Suite secures corporate data outside the firewall. With the rapid enterprise adoption of cloud apps and mobile devices, sensitive corporate data is moving outside the firewall. Conventional security solutions that secure the infrastructure are unable to protect these environments, challenging enterprises to maintain visibility and control. Bitglass has developed technologies that secure data anywhere it goes – in the cloud, on the network, at access and on mobile devices.

“We're honored to be recognized by Gartner as a Cool Vendor,” said Nat Kausik, CEO, Bitglass. “The adoption of cloud and mobile has greatly increased the attack surface for sensitive enterprise data and we believe that only Bitglass takes a unified approach to securing cloud and mobile.”
