LONDON-ObserveIT, the leading insider threat management provider with more than 1,800 customers around the world, today announced that it has been cited in the recent Executive View report from KuppingerCole, as offering the modern approach to combat Insider Threats.
With digital transformation, constant adoption of new technologies, changing organisational structures and business processes, sensitive corporate data that used to be stored in closely guarded on-premises silos is now spread across multiple clouds.
“With this evolution, the risk posed by insiders, whether accidental or malicious, is an increasing concern for global enterprises today,” comments Simon Sharp, Vice President at ObserveIT.
ObserveIT offers a purpose-built platform including 300+ out-of-the-box insider threat rules that identify out-of-policy activities including data filtration attempts, usage of unapproved applications, unauthorised privilege escalation and more, to detect, investigate and prevent insider threats.
Rich metadata that’s collected by the platform gives security teams the visibility to see and reconstruct the details of every user session and present irrefutable evidence, using the full activity log and optional video recording.
Since access to such sensitive data may lead to privacy concerns (especially in countries with strong regulations like GDPR), the dashboard also provides a number of privacy-enhancing features such as configurable data anonymisation, access control and a global “session-privacy lock” to ensure compliance.
Key strengths about the ObserveIT Platform highlighted in the report, include:
- A unique approach based on a curated library of known insider threat indicators
- A broad range of supported device platforms, massive amounts of context data captured by lightweight agents
- Data-centric view of user activities tracks document movements across the enterprise
- Easy deployment, low maintenance, no training period required
- Comprehensive privacy controls built in
‘The ObserveIT platform offers a modern approach towards insider threat detection; that combines the functionality of a traditional user behaviour analytics solution (UBA) and a data loss prevention product (DLP)”, comments Alexei Balaganski, lead analyst for KuppingerCole and author of the report.
“We are excited to be recognised by leading European analyst firm, KuppingerCole, as providing the modern approach to insider threat management. The report underlines our commitment to delivering a platform that helps organisations reduce the risk of insider threat, whilst maintaining compliance and privacy in the era of digital transformation” concludes Simon Sharp, VP International at ObserveIT.
