According to a new press release, “RedOwl, the leader in insider risk solutions, today announced the release of the latest version of its Insider Risk Framework, designed to help enterprises quickly deploy and operationalize programs to mitigate insider risk in regulatory compliance and information security. With this release, enterprises can rapidly integrate new, complex data sources, apply powerful behavioral analytics that look across mode and at the intrinsic risk characteristics of people, and visualize these in a new entity-centric set of dashboards across a specific set of use cases. The capability is now generally available.”
The release goes on, “According to the latest Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, 77 percent of data breaches are a result of insiders. Today, most security spend focuses on the perimeter, leaving many blind spots within enterprises. At the same time, enterprise data generation is exploding, with about 2.5 exabytes of data created daily. The major driver in data growth is unstructured data, which includes communications, images and audio files. For risk management teams using basic user behavior analytics, the sheer volume of structured data, complexity of unstructured data and infinite query possibilities make it impossible to implement, manage and scale systems to identify incidents and mitigate risk. Recent incidents, including the disclosure of CIA documents to Wikileaks and Google’s lawsuit against Otto, underscore the urgent need for enterprises to quickly build and deploy insider threat programs.”
