Insider Threat Defined

Insider threats occur when a past or present employee or business partner maliciously uses access to an organziation's IT systems, intellectual property, or any other valuable data. The insider threat may use the data to commit fraud, sabotage the organziation, or outright steal proprietary data. Inside threats can also come from user negligence or compromised accounts. 

Why is Insider Threat Detection Important?

Today’s damaging breaches are rooted in people-based vulnerabilities. You must protect data and guard your most critical systems against the broad spectrum of insiders, including accidental, compromised and malicious users. Forcepoint Insider Threat identifies the riskiest insiders in your environment and empowers your teams to confidently investigate and remediate the threat.

Forcepoint Insider Threat

We had an issue with an employee. He was trying to gain access to some customer data but was prevented from doing so using Forcepoint. I wasn’t expecting Forcepoint to detect such a detailed test but it did. My manager and upper management are very happy about this high level of quality from Forcepoint.
