Most organizations have cybersecurity measures in place including antivirus, firewall, intrusion detection to protect infrastructure and IT assets. While these are generally good at defending the organization from external threats, they leave a security hole when it comes to employees and other internal users, third party vendors, contractors and privileged administrators who already have access to an organization’s valuable assets and sensitive data.
Whether it is a company’s intellectual property, financial records, customer data, PII, PHI or other sensitive material, it only takes one insider to engage in unwanted behavior and expose an organization to risks. In fact, the majority of the data breaches in recent years involved weak or exploited employee credentials either by malicious or accidental incident (source). This is where StaffCop can help fill the gaps which already includes features like Employee Monitoring, Privileged User Monitoring, Third-Party Monitoring, User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA), Endpoint Security etc. crucial for a holistic insider threat prevention solution.
User activity monitoring is the process of tracking all user activity and behavior, while they are logged into a computer (endpoint). With an employee monitoring solution in place, businesses have the necessary means to keep an eye on their sensitive data, employees and third-party entities so that they can identify and stop the misuse of company data and resources.
