Data Leakage Prevention & Protection

Data leakage is the unauthorized transmission of data from inside a company to a different destination or party, primarily done electronically. As data is the lifeblood of many organizations today, this can have massive consequences, both internally and externally.

How will you prevent data leakage?

Use Case

Data doesn’t leave an organization on its own.
Employees, privileged users, and third parties may—knowingly or unknowingly—steal it or move it to locations where it does not belong. Either way, it can result in financial, legal or reputational trouble for your organization.

Our Approach

ObserveIT provides organizations with “eyes on the endpoint” and the ability to continuously monitor data for signs of theft before exfiltration happens. ObserveIT alerts security and IT teams about data-related user activities that put organizations at risk.

ObserveIT is different, because it focuses on user activity that indicates an intent to steal or exfiltrate data. It has been a total game-changer for us.

Their Challenge

This organization recognized that data leakage prevention and other conventional tools to regulate data exchange were not sufficient to stymie a rising tide of insider threats. The tools simply weren’t designed for that purpose. They needed more visibility into user activity to detect and stop data loss.

Our Solution

ObserveIT offered more visibility than data leakage prevention tools, along with improved functionality and additional context regarding user behaviors that could indicate risk of data loss. Now the infrastructure team and compliance team can both achieve their objectives without unduly slowing down end users.

The Result

Most data leakage prevention tools can be bypassed quickly by someone who wants to steal or move data. With ObserveIT, this organization was able to stop data loss in its tracks and dramatically decrease risk for the business.
