Most organizations have several cyber solutions in place, including firewalls, network security appliances, and anti-virus solutions. Still, they cannot identify or measure insider risks. Employees’ unintentional, but damaging, actions are a serious vulnerability that none of the traditional tools can defend against. Common Identity Management tools cannot prevent a malicious insider with credentials from stealing anything as they lack the context. For example, they have sensitive data hosted on servers with access control rules, but they cannot quantify how it is affected by users’ poor cyber hygiene practices and non-adherence to Acceptable Use Policies. They also cannot track the effectiveness of their security controls and training.
Insider risk is identified as one of the costliest and most common sources of data breaches to organizations. Protect your organization against all insider risks – from non-malicious to malicious – with Ava Reveal.
Individual user profiles shed light on how data is accessed and used, with optional anonymization for privacy. With user activity monitoring, you can protect your systems and data from those who already have privileged access and knowledge of sensitive data and systems.
Built-in rules immediately alert the operator of real-world insider risk scenarios. For example, detect employees using restricted administrative tools, sending sensitive information outside of the organization, circumventing security, and printing documents during irregular hours.
Built-in policies for data tracking, cyber hygiene, and malicious activity that can detect and defend against various risks. Policies run against computers and users, providing insight into how users access files, applications, and systems, which determine specific areas of risk.
Continuous monitoring provides visibility into user behaviour, data access, and system use. Security operators can search on file, USB device, connection, browser, application events, and more.
Ava Reveal is UAM certified by National Insider Threat Task Force (NITTF), providing individual user profiles, keystroke monitoring, full application content, and screen capture. All data is attributed to a specific user, even on shared machines.
With Ava Reveal’s industry-leading solution of pre-built data minimization techniques, such as pseudonymization and anonymization (partial and full redaction), you can now detect and mitigate threats while maintaining the confidentiality of users.
