Organizational insiders – whether employees, contractors or third-party vendors, whether acting intentionally or negligently – have the access to critical systems, data, and infrastructure to pose a unique cybersecurity threat. Today, 60% of all cybersecurity attacks are carried out by insiders (IBM Cyber Security Intelligence Index), and the average cost of this type of breach is $11.45 million (The Ponemon Institute Cost of Insider Threats Global Report 2020).

ObserveIT offers the industry’s first Insider Threat Management solution powered by community-driven intelligence, a library of over 350 real-world Insider Threat indicators, and a powerful analytics engine that uniquely illustrates the context around alerts. ObserveIT lets security teams identify, track, and prioritize threats in real-time, providing up to the minute insights to customers and helping them get ahead of potential insider-led data breaches. ObserveIT provides clear visibility with the necessary context to understand who is doing what, when, and why.

With the ObserveIT Insider Threat Management platform, security teams can:

•Identify anomalous user behavior based on a powerful rules-based engine and advanced analytics
•Investigate alerts in minutes, not days or weeks
•Search, view, and analyze timelines of user activity
•Examine user, file, email, or endpoint diaries for evidence of suspicious activity
•Export comprehensive reports for Legal, HR, or other incident response stakeholders

How we are different

•Superior Insight through Contextual Intelligence: ObserveIT is one of the only solution on the market that provides contextual intelligence - in other words, timely data that enables the business to understand the context behind an incident. With ObserveIT, organizations can quickly understand what happened before, during and after the incident, whether the incident was accidental or malicious in nature, and who was behind it. Only with this level of context can organizations respond in a timely and appropriate fashion to insider threats.

•Easy to Deploy: With lightweight endpoint architecture, and no appliance or hardware installation, ObserveIT was specifically developed to enhance security posture without impacting end-user productivity and while respecting organizational privacy culture through data anonymization and customizable monitoring features.

•Focus on Compliance: ObserveIT also helps organizations to meet PCI, HIPAA, GDPR, or FERPA compliance requirements by offering unmatched visibility into user activity with applications, files and critical systems. ObserveIT provides unparalleled user activity monitoring on organizations’ systems and helps security teams to set up real-time alerts that notify them about any use cases they must monitor in order to meet stringent regulations and mandates.
