Insider Threat Resolve Through Employee Monitoring

It is no surprise that with the continuing advancements in data mobility, increasing demands of regulatory compliance, and sharing amongst the global community, that securing our nation’s sensitive information becomes more difficult each day. It is with this mobile and ever-changing environment in mind that Intelligent ID was created.

Intelligent ID Overview

Intelligent ID is a comprehensive Endpoint Monitoring and Protection (EMaP) tool that reduces an organization’s employee liability landscape by protecting its most valuable data. Intelligent ID accomplishes this by continuously monitoring endpoint and user behavior for policy violations, compliance infractions, and anomalous activity or file usage that could be signs of an impending breach. Intelligent ID’s four modules: Data Loss Prevention, Identity Activity, Productivity Monitoring, and Infrastructure Monitoring, collect and analyze data to provide instant insight and alerts when an incident arises.
