ObserveIT Announces 7.8 To Drive Innovation Around Insider Threat Management With Enhanced Data Exfiltration Prevention Capabilities

ObserveIT, the insider threat management platform with more than 1,900 customers around the world, today announced the launch of its newest solution, ObserveIT 7.8. The latest release reinforces ObserveIT’s insider threat management leadership, providing organizations with greater visibility and detection of data exfiltration via email, context around sent and received attachments and Activity Replay to capture user activity pre and post a policy violation.

According to Verizon’s recent Insider Threat Report, 57% of database breaches involved insider threats within an organization, largely stemming from either malicious or inadvertent email activity. As insider threats become increasingly more common, organizations need to arm employees, contractors and other third parties with the right tools and training to ensure sensitive information remains secure.

ObserveIT’s latest update, ObserveIT 7.8, enables security teams to proactively detect and quickly investigate potential insider threats attempting to exfiltrate data through desktop email in addition to existing capabilities for web applications, webmail, cloud storage, removable media, keyboard shortcuts and command-line. Today, security teams are forced to correlate file activity across multiple products or, worse, acquire email logs from their IT teams. Both approaches require time-consuming, manual analysis and lack user context. ObserveIT provides one platform to detect risky emails, both sent and received, view their full context, including attachments, and investigate the user and file before and after the email activity.

“The first tool I go to for investigations is ObserveIT. We get alerts from other tools, but ultimately use ObserveIT for full context around various incidents,” said Bill Duenges, Senior Vice President of IT at Aircastle. “With ObserveIT’s easy to use, quick to setup and lightweight solution, my team is more productive, users aren't impacted and our valuable assets are better protected.”

“Employees can be an organization’s biggest asset in protecting against data loss, but to do so, they need the right training and technology support,” said ObserveIT CEO, Mike McKee. “With increased visibility into user actions, ObserveIT 7.8 empowers security teams to ‘Know the Whole Story’ of who, did what, when without disrupting workflows or productivity.”
