At Next DLP, we started with the people. A small core group of engineers got together to find an industry where we could merge innovation, passion, and simplicity to help people reach their greatest potential. Their attention was drawn towards the world of security—indispensable to modern work, yet often overlooked and taken for granted.
Organizations needed the tools to understand if something was happening in real-time to keep their people safe and their data protected.
Security should live and breathe with your business. We aim to help organizations protect their operations, while going beyond security to optimize for their evolving business needs, giving people time to spend on the possibilities ahead.
We started Next DLP in 2020.
Today, we’re still creating a better, smarter way to deliver security. We protect people and data anywhere, and innovative companies worldwide use Next DLP for human-centric data loss protection.
