Dun & Bradstreet Introduces D&B Protect™ to Bring Supply Chain Industry Intelligence and Visibility to Public Sector Agencies

Dun & Bradstreet (NYSE:DNB), a leading global provider of business decisioning data and analytics, today introduced D&B Protect, a new supply chain risk platform designed for the North America Public Sector that illuminates sub-tier suppliers and identifies risk in real-time throughout an entire supply chain to address high-risk vulnerabilities to supply chain fraud, abuse, and exploitation by adversaries.

D&B Protect pulls the power of the world’s largest set of proprietary commercial insights from the Dun & Bradstreet Data Cloud, which covers over a half billion private and public organizations globally and applies the innovative visualization of Graph Technology to map complex datasets and rapidly uncover relationships across diverse datasets, to provide a more holistic view of supply chains and their hidden risks.

“D&B Protect, powered by the latest technology and leading market intelligence, is designed to help government specialists understand and mitigate critical threats to their entire supplier ecosystem,” said Rich Kulesa, General Manager, Dun & Bradstreet Public Sector. “Dun & Bradstreet brings years of global supply chain mapping data including over 241 billion mapped and verified buyer-supplier connections, intelligence that is absolutely critical for government agencies to manage supply chains with confidence in an increasingly disruptive and complex environment.”

Fueled by machine learning, D&B Protect uses Dun & Bradstreet’s globally connected predictive data to uncover the sub-tiers of a supplier network and evaluate and monitor critical risk areas. With this level of transparency, government agencies will more easily identify verified and disclosable associations between organizations and proactively detect any areas of supply chain fraud or foreign influence concerns at unprecedented speed and scale. D&B Protect also includes Dun & Bradstreet’s ESG Ranking Datasets, which help agencies perform due diligence when evaluating supplier compliance against several ESG metrics to create healthier, more resilient supply chains.

D&B Protect is available on Dun & Bradstreet’s new, single sign-on Public Sector Solutions Platform, that brings together the portfolio of Public Sector purpose-built solutions, including D&B Investigate™ and D&B Fortify™, in one place for ease of use and accessibility for customers. Each of these solutions is built on the strong foundation of Dun & Bradstreet’s proprietary data and is designed for all levels of government—federal, state, and local—and for all facets, including law enforcement, healthcare, and educational institutions.
