Prevents data leaks, and is stable, but the partner program has serious room for improvement
The partner program has serious room for improvement. Digital Guardian is an excellent solution but our experience with the partner has been the most horrible experience we have ever had with any partner. The partner started the project but they did not have enough experience and when we reached out to Digital Guardian they did not provide the amount of support we expected. We did not get the full value we expected from the solution at the end of the day although we had paid for it. This made us feel stuck because we did not get what we were promised. I would like the solution to provide more monitoring support for web-based emails such as Google.

An affordable and scalable product that has a good dashboard and a centralized console for everything

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:


"It can scale from 100 to 10,000. There's no problem with the scalability."
"I like the solution's adaptive inspection and container inspection."
"It has been scalable."
"The most valuable feature of Digital Guardian is its reputation. They have scored high on the Gartner Magic Quadrant."
"Some of the features that are highly appreciated are its robust data loss prevention capabilities, flexible deployment options, and the ability to monitor data transfer across multiple vectors."
"In Digital Guardian, they have the cloud correlation servers that give you visibility work like EBR and the correlation server works very well for security analysis."
"The feature we call desktop recording is the most valuable aspect of the solution. Not only can we collect data from the user's usage, but we also capture his screenshots when he is trying to steal the data."
"It has the added advantage of offering forensic analysis."
"I am impressed with the tool's ease of deployment."
"The classifications in place are very helpful in making policies for ensuring sensitive data can be contained."
"This solution helps classify what is confidential and what is not, allowing products to be installed at home if they do not contain confidential information."
"They have a fingerprint feature that is very awesome. OCR is very awesome to have too."
"The product has a centralized console for everything."
"The most valuable feature is we can develop what we want. If we have an old or new requirement, they are able to support us to develop it all within one month."
"The main thing that I like about GTB is that it has a single agent for DLP and data classification. You can use the same agent. In terms of licensing too, it has a single license. When it comes to data classification, it supports open-source document platforms such as ChainSoft and OpenOffice."


"The initial setup is a bit more complex than other solutions."
"The room for improvement with Digital Guardian is that it will be better with the Linux agent because it is the only DLP solution for Linux workstations. It still needs to upgrade the agents to the latest version for the Linux kernel."
"Some features on Mac and Linux are not complete currently. For example, some device control features haven't been transferred over to the other systems. If they could have their Windows features also available on Mac and Linux, that would be perfect. Some of our customers have a Mac environment for their RD environment. Having the solution fully capable of handling everything in a Mac environment is crucial."
"I would like to see the workflow, to get all the rules and policies set up, be less complicated."
"If the client uses Windows 10 or 11 and Microsoft updates the operating system's version, Digital Guardian must update their product to match compatibility."
"There are a lot of issues with the current version of the Endpoint agent. It's not stable, it's resource-consuming, and there are some performance issues. If they could improve the stability of the agent it would be great."
"The solution has complexities around policy creation and deployment."
"When considering potential areas for improvement, it may be beneficial for Digital Guardian to optimize its processes and reduce the computational demands on the system, particularly with regard to high CPU usage. Although Digital Guardian offers numerous benefits, it can consume a substantial amount of RAM and CPU power."
"The solution could improve by providing additional availability requirements."
"The product needs to improve its support so that users can just log in and create tickets as opposed to sending emails. Sending emails is difficult to track. It also needs to work on its analytics platform."
"The performance could be better."
"It would be great if they have information rights management (IRM) on the same agent."
"The solution’s performance must be improved."
"To stay competitive, they should expand to smartphones."
"They have a roadmap for the Linux platform and Mac as well, and in the next quarter, they might have patch management also for Windows. However, they don't have that much for Linux and Mac. So, we need those things in Linux and Mac as well."

Pricing and Cost Advice

"I rate the solution's pricing an eight out of ten because Digital Guardian is expensive."
"The cost was around $300,000."
"The price of Digital Guardian is expensive."
"If I compare Digital Guardian with Symantec, the license cost is lower, but McAfee can be cheaper than Digital Guardian. It depends on how many licenses you plan to buy and how big the project is. The cost is not so high as Symantec, but not as cheap as McAfee. They can easily sell the solution for price."
"Digital Guardian has both, subscription and perpetual licenses, but I think when everything (all technologies) will go to the cloud they will only offer subscriptions."
"The price of Digital Guardian is on the higher end compared to other vendors."
"They offer a lot of features in a single bundle. So, if you want to remove some features from GTB, you can remove those. You don't need to buy those, and the price will reduce accordingly. I am very happy with the pricing."
"The tool's pricing is affordable and based on the number of endpoints."
"The tool is not expensive."
"When comparing GTB Technologies Inspector to other solutions you receive a good value for your money when considering all the features and benefits."
"Its price is very reasonable and competitive."
