When you bring in third parties—like consultants and outside agencies—to support your business, you need to make sure their actions stay within policy so that you are able to remain secure and meet compliance mandates. Logging solutions simply can’t offer the necessary level of granular visibility.
ObserveIT monitors and audits all actions taken by third parties on a company’s systems to protect data and reduce risk. In doing so, ObserveIT identifies and eliminates insider threats from third parties, including remote vendors, contractors, and partners.
