In order to modernize the cyber security infrastructure Jabil partners with Digital Guardian, the only data-centric security platform designed to stop data theft. Jabil is a $19 billion provider of comprehensive product design, production and product management services to electronics and technology companies worldwide. By combining the Digital Guardian’s managed services along with the cloud based cyber security tools of Jabil, both the companies are expecting to bring a dynamic change in the field of cyber security. With its main focus on protecting the Intellectual Rights of all its customers, the technology focuses on how and why data moves throughout the organization.
Within 30 days of full deployment, Jabil’s security team gained visibility into all data access and usage across 52,000 workstations. They immediately identified data being copied to USB drives more commonly than anyone expected. The objective of the partnership is to improve the security and reduce the cyber security threats. Jabil’s cyber security modernization meant switching from securing the perimeter to securing endpoints—all remote devices accessing the corporate network. Depending on the type of threats that develops, the initiative is aimed at bringing solutions that can change with the change in the threat environment.
