ObserveIT, a threat monitoring and analytics solution provider, unveiled new actionable analytics and the ability to proactively block risky, out-of-policy activities by insiders, giving security and IT teams powerful weapons in the fight to make their organizations more secure. With the innovations now available in ObserveIT 7.0, the company continues its leadership in enabling customers to ensure that privileged users, vendors and business users do not act in negligent or malicious ways that put their businesses at risk.
"ObserveIT's new, modern manager dashboard interface marks a new league in user experience. In addition, the latest set of features − including key-logging alerts and preventive blocking against high-risk activities − provide exactly what our customers have been requesting," said Dennis Buroh, Senior Consultant at Consist Software Solutions. "Each release of ObserveIT's insider threat solution enhances our customers' ability to proactively and easily prevent internal risks posed by contractors and employees."
New capabilities in ObserveIT 7.0 include:
- Instant prevention of security breaches: ObserveIT 7.0 gives security teams the ability to detect and block activities that violate policies or put organizations at risk in real-time. Organizations can choose to force users to log-off or close applications or websites involved with unauthorized activity.
- New actionable analytics based on user activity: Security teams can now quickly detect and investigate out-of-policy actions. Baseline user profiles can be dynamically filtered, to see security incidents in the context of normal activity, and investigate anomalous or risky behavior accordingly.
- Analytics extend to key-logging alerts: ObserveIT 7.0 enables security teams to detect sensitive keywords and commands typed into desktop applications, websites and shell command tools, so organizations can identify and investigate data exfiltration attempts by users entering protected keywords in emails, chat applications, social media sites and more.
- Enhanced user experience: ObserveIT 7.0 also provides an improved dashboard and user interface that delivers an intuitive experience, making the solution even easier to use.
"Unfortunately, security threats are a fact of business life. It's also a fact that the biggest security risk to organizations is from employees and vendors who inadvertently or maliciously violate security policies, which is why the demand for insider threat solutions is higher than ever before," explained ObserveIT CEO Mike McKee. "As a clear industry leader committed to continuously innovating for our customers, I'm proud to say that our new actionable analytics and proactive prevention capabilities make ObserveIT 7.0 the most powerful and easy to use insider threat solution on the market today."
