The challenge at hand

Combating unauthorized data exfiltration

Motorola, a front-runner in the smartphone industry, was grappling with a critical challenge: the exfiltration of confidential product designs before their official launch. This issue was not just a breach of security; it was a direct threat to the company’s market position and innovation lead. With new products frequently in the pipeline, the sensitive design data required extensive collaboration across various teams and even external supply chains, making it a significant challenge to manage and protect this information without hampering the aggressive product development timelines. The company's existing security tools were falling short, unable to effectively detect and prevent the sophisticated data exfiltration techniques used by competitors, particularly Chinese copycats.

Data lineage is understanding how the data came into your environment and when it came in, and then how it changed, and where it traveled once it was inside your environment.

Our DLP solutions were never really told us exactly what was there. Everything was a credit card number. Everything was a Social Security number. And so it just wasn't great. And it was a lot of work to manage.

Zack Willis
Senior VP of Technology, IVP

I've used traditional DLP technologies in the past and sometimes the noise-to-signal ratio can be a lot. The context Cyberhaven gives us has significantly improved our data protection, monitoring of data movement, and insider risk.

Prabhath Karanth
VP and Global Head of Security & Trust, Navan

False positives have been the gating factor for our data protection policies and every one of them makes users angry and creates extra work for our team. Cyberhaven has changed that completely with blocking that is accurate and reliable, and we have a built-in trace of every event so we can validate each decision.

CISO, Bazaarvoice

The key challenge with insider threat tools is that they alert you to threats but don’t stop them. And they don’t detect actual threats, many of their alerts turn out to be false positives. Cyberhaven can take action to stop data exfiltration while an insider threat is happening.

John Harris
VP of IT Ops, Day & Zimmermann

Cyberhaven is not only the best tool for tracking data movement and exfiltration, the team clearly cares about your data. Their unique design makes everything very easy to comprehend and quick to take action on.

Donald Strand
Security Systems Administrator, BLT Communications

We've been with Cyberhaven for almost a year, and it's been a cornerstone of our DLP strategy. Their support team is always there for us, addressing any issues or requests we have.

Cyberhaven beat everyone else in security to the punch with data lineage. Being able to surface critical content without having to painstakingly configure alerts has turned me into a zealot for this technology.

When you have a traditional system and you’re just looking at all the blocked actions, there’s just a lot of noise. Cyberhaven helps identify things that you don’t usually see with traditional DLP.
