Does your company require employees to sign non-compete or non-disclosure agreements? If not, have you considered making your employees sign one? Are you located in a state in which non-compete agreements are unlawful or hard to enforce? Have you ever been asked to sign a non-compete or non-disclosure agreement and felt reluctant to do so because you didn’t want to limit your future job prospects?

Chances are you answered “yes” to one or more of the questions above because companies have a legitimate, keen interest in protecting the information that gives them a competitive edge. Companies use non-compete and non-disclosure agreements, in part, to deter employees from pilfering proprietary, competitive information for the benefit of a competitor.

But what if you could stop the employee from stealing your proprietary information before he or she left to work for a competitor? Jazz Networks uses machine learning to analyze user behavior to prevent data exfiltration. We give organizations the ability to monitor how data is accessed, identify threats, and take action in real time.

It makes business sense to invest in a technology that will prevent an employee from stealing your competitive information, rather than spending time and money fighting in court after you’ve lost control over how the information is shared and used.

Additionally, non-compete and non-disclosure agreements can be hard to enforce in many states. In some states, like California, they’re unlawful. The Jazz Platform is a product that will achieve your objective of protecting your competitive assets before they walk out the door.

Lastly, non-compete and non-disclosure agreements may deter potential talent from joining your organization. If you’ve ever been asked to sign one, then you know how unsettling they can be. If your company is concerned about scaring off talent, but you want to protect your competitive information, consider Jazz Networks as an alternative solution.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
