Insider Threats are quickly becoming one of the greatest cyber security threats that organizations face today.
They are responsible for three million records stolen every day and are at the heart of 57% of all database breaches last year (Verizon 2019).
Research also shows that the average time to spot and contain an insider threat is a massive 77 days -- just 13% of incidents are caught within 30 days (Ponemon 2020).
The reason they are so prolific, and take so long to deal with, is because anyone with legitimate, trusted access to an organization’s systems and data – whether full-time employee, part-time contractor or strategic business partner – can be an Insider Threat.
Managing insider threats fundamentally requires a people-centric approach. With the acquisition of ObserveIT, Proofpoint adds a powerful Insider Threat Management platform to our portfolio of People Centric security solutions. The ObserveIT platform delivers unique capability to monitor both user and file activity, enabling security and compliance professionals to be alerted to risky, out-of-policy activities and any unexplained changes in user behavior in real-time, and successfully stopping and investigating any activity before it becomes a full-blown breach.
