ObserveIT Recognized as IDC Innovator: Behavioral Analytics & Identity Awareness, 2016

Reading Time: < 1 minute

ObserveIT earns yet another industry achievement for its ability to help enterprises address and solve security risks.

We are proud to announce that International Data Corporation (IDC) has named ObserveIT an IDC Innovator in the behavioral analytics and identity awareness market. ObserveIT’s Insider Threat Management platform is a proactive security solution that keeps insiders (employees, vendors, etc.) in policy, and when someone acts out of policy, records the session automatically to speed investigations. The system also automatically ranks insiders on their threat levels, and enables security teams to act quickly to mitigate both malicious and unintentional actions.

The report, authored by noted security expert and IDC analyst Sean Pike, recognizes emerging vendors that offer an innovative new technology or a groundbreaking business model, or both, and were approved by the IDC Innovators Review Panel.

ObserveIT was recognized as the first user behavioral analytics (UBA) solution to combine related UBA, supervision and monitoring, and training technologies into a single platform that provides an added layer of context and behavioral modification.

The IDC Innovator Assessment Benefits include:

  • Bringing a relatively mature product into a relatively immature market
  • ObserveIT proven in both unique and active security environments
  • As infrastructure continues to decentralize, behavior & identity will face greater challenges
