"Upgrading to ObserveIT 6.7 brings us new features that make it even easier to identify the people – vendors, privileged users and high-risk users – who pose the biggest insider threat."
"Insider threats are the single largest risk facing companies today. Any company that feels it is immune to this risk simply needs to read the headline-grabbing news about the latest breaches at the NSA, arguably one of the most secure organizations on the planet," said Mike McKee, CEO of ObserveIT.
Whether it's intentional or unintentional, every insider on the network, from business users and privileged users to 3rd party vendors and contractors, presents a threat. ObserveIT identifies and eliminates these insider threats with real-time security awareness, deterrence and precise visibility into all user actions with its industry-leading video playback capabilities. This insight not only reduces security incidents, it also speeds investigations from months to minutes and helps organizations comply with PCI, SOX, HIPAA, NISPOM, GDPR and other compliance requirements.
"In today's digital world, we know that staying ahead of cyber thieves and ensuring employees and vendors don't maliciously or inadvertently violate security policies is a job that can only be future-proofed by continuously innovating," explained McKee. "I'm proud to say that ObserveIT 6.7 not only reflects that commitment – it is the most powerful and easy to use insider threat solution on the market today."
