In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:
Identifies common insider threat indicators, such as data exfiltration, privilege escalation, and careless behavior on an endpoint in real time.
Detects data exfiltration attempts made on endpoints when users type protected keywords.
Reduces risk with real-time user notifications and blocking. Directly enforces company security policy—automatically and in real time—to promote security awareness and prevent security breaches.
Employees of any company and its extended network pose a security threat to the organization’s critical systems and data. Today, 60 percent of all attacks are carried out by insiders, resulting in $5 million in total costs for every breach. ObserveIT helps customers reduce the risk of threat resulting from the malicious or accidental actions of employees, contractors and vendors by protecting organizations from insider threats across their entire networks and across all endpoints.
Many organizations manage confidential or proprietary data in systems accessed via an internal network, web or cloud interface, presenting massive security challenges to protecting sensitive data. With ObserveIT’s solution, companies can significantly reduce the risk of security incidents by identifying common insider threat indicators, such as data exfiltration, privilege escalation, and careless behavior on endpoints, providing detailed information on exactly what happened so security teams can take efficient, effective action. ObserveIT provides 360-degree views of user behavior, real-time detection, deterrence, education and discretionary prevention against all such threats. ObserveIT’s monitoring of endpoints enables enterprises to deploy proactive defenses against both malicious and negligent user behavior, investigating potential incidents, and optimizing endpoint security processes through notifications and blocking. In addition, the rich metadata collected throughout the process provides irrefutable evidence and reduces investigation time from weeks to days. ObserveIT offers optional full playback of security incidents and helps organizations comply with regulations such as GDPR, PCI, SOX, HIPPA, NISPOM and others.
Trusted by more than 1,600 customers in 87 countries and across a range of industries, businesses are increasingly choosing ObserveIT over other endpoint and Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solutions. Paired with ObserveIT’s ease of implementation, its unique ability to unify user activity, data activity, and user analytics into a single interface makes ObserveIT the clear leader within the competitive landscape of endpoint security.
