Not surprisingly, high-tech and IT companies are on the cutting edge of digital transformation. Fueled by the need for innovation, high-tech companies take advantage of every opportunity to increase team productivity, customer engagement, and partner effectiveness. Collaboration networks, such as Slack and Yammer, accelerate communication, while social media networks expand market visibility and help companies target and nurture prospective audiences. Enterprise apps, like SalesForce, Skype, and SharePoint, help them stay up to date with their sales channels and partner communities.

Technology companies are high-value targets for IP theft: product plans, patents, internal processes, customer lists, financials, and M&A information.
