BOSTON, Feb. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ObserveIT, the world's leading provider of insider threat management software, announced today the release of version 6.5. By monitoring and shaping user behavior, this new version addresses the main cause of security threats – insiders. Whether it's getting infected, making honest mistakes or malicious activity, nearly all security incidents are caused by employees and contractors.

"ObserveIT's new policy notification and enforcement capabilities dramatically reduce negligent behavior and prevent malicious activities," said Rich Malewicz, CIO of a local municipality.   "ObserveIT addresses the root cause of the majority of our security incidents, which translates to fewer employees getting infected or making accidental mistakes. Ultimately, this enables my staff to focus on more strategic initiatives, instead of constantly putting out fires."

ObserveIT enforces security policies and prevents unauthorized activity, eliminating risk at the source. By analyzing and scoring behavior, ObserveIT quickly identifies who's putting your company at risk. With ObserveIT, you will quickly determine intent of high risk behavior with a real-time view of activities and forensic recordings. By mitigating insider threats and cutting the number of security incidents by half, ObserveIT delivers instant ROI.

Version 6.5 of ObserveIT Insider Threat Management:

  • Prevents unauthorized and malicious activity with policy enforcement – cutting security incidents in half
  • Informs employees with policy notifications – increasing security awareness across the enterprise
  • Increases library of Behavioral Analytics – detecting thousands of known risky behaviors out-of-the-box
  • Initiates forensic recording for high-risk activity— reducing investigations to minutes instead of months

 "The majority of security incidents stem from unintentional or negligent employee behavior," said Gabriel Friedlander, Co-Founder and CTO of ObserveIT.   "People often forget what they learn during employee on-boarding and training. Instead, ObserveIT provides just-in-time training by informing them of high-risk activities in real time and in the context of their actions, addressing the root cause of almost all security incidents."
