Insider threats in cyber security, sometimes referred to as user-based threats, are one of the major risks for organizations.
Our software platform supports your insider threat program at each step: managing access, auditing activity, and detecting and responding to incidents.
Insiders are employees, third-party
contractors, and other business partners that have legitimate access to
corporate data and infrastructure.
Insider threats can entail abuse of
privileged access in order to steal, corrupt, or destroy valuable corporate or
employee data. But security incidents can also be caused inadvertently by those
with access to corporate assets. While data breaches are the most common
security issue, critical configuration changes and misuse of corporate assets
also should be covered by an insider security policy.
When developing policies to mitigate and prevent insider security risks, security officers must consider specific approaches and tools. Detecting and investigating incidents caused by insiders is quite challenging for various reasons:
Insiders have authorized access.
One insider performs up to 10,000 operations per day, every day.
Insiders know the ins and outs of the system.
Insiders may collude and hide their tracks.
Recent industry research demonstrates the increasing importance of insider threat management, with security experts defining these attacks as the most silent and devastating.
Our system is
universal enterprise insider threat management software that meets the full
spectrum of security needs on all kinds of infrastructure nodes, from desktops
to jump servers.
The platform combines comprehensive activity monitoring and alerting functionality with an advanced access management and identity control toolset, manual and automated incident response, and powerful reporting capabilities. This makes our system a one-stop solution to implement your insider security policy.
Our system is a
comprehensive monitoring solution to log insider user activity, flag suspicious
user behavior, and provide investigators with the information required to
respond to security incidents.
As professional insider threat monitoring software, our system equally monitors generic and privileged user accounts, providing advanced protection techniques to guarantee that even privileged IT personnel can’t cover their tracks.
Our system allows you to record all user sessions on target endpoints. IP-based
and username-based record filtering options are available.
The primary recording
format is screen video recordings indexed with multiple layers of text metadata,
from application names to typed keystrokes and details of connected devices.
Depending on the type of endpoint, our system clients may record one, several, or all concurrent user sessions.
Besides providing comprehensive connection details – which are important when auditing remote sessions – our system enables further session analysis. Investigators can search by various parameters (name of the active application, visited URL, command entered, or even text typed) within the current session and across all recorded sessions. Search even extends to the content of uploaded scripts.
To ensure continuous
monitoring of any user with any permissions, our system includes a smart
combination of watchdog and driver-level process protection mechanisms to
prevent monitoring disruptions. Session recording continues locally even when
the server connection is lost.
Our insider threat management platform provides a highly configurable alerting subsystem that includes both customizable rules based on generic behavioral indicators of potential insider threats and an AI-powered user behavior analytics module for detecting anomalies in the routines of internal users.
Our system provides rule-based incident flagging functionality. Its collection of alert templates covers the most common insider threat indicators. At the same time, you can enhance the system with your own alert rules using a variety of activity parameters: process names, opened web addresses, connected USB devices, typed keystrokes, or executed Linux commands.
Our alert system includes an artificial intelligence module that baselines user behavior against multiple factors to further detect abnormal user activity and possible account compromise.
To act on triggered alerts beyond merely notifying the security team, our system provides options to set up automated incident response actions. These vary from warning messages obligating users to acknowledge their actions to application termination and user blocking.
Controlling USB devices is a mandatory part of any insider threat management
solution. Our System platform detects, tracks, and may trigger alerts upon connection of various types of USB devices. It also delivers a toolset to allow or block specific devices and device types according to whitelists and blacklists and to apply manual approval for certain USB device usage scenarios.
Our system enables granular access management for both
privileged and general user accounts. It includes complete privileged account
and session management functionality, password management, and access request
workflow support. We can also integrate with your ticketing system to reinforce
the purpose-based access principle.
To control user identity, it includes reliable and efficient two-factor authentication options.
