Insider Threat Response

Information Protection


Accelerate Incident Response with Proofpoint ITM

62% of all insider threat incidents are accidental, not with malicious intent. Why wouldn’t you coach such insiders on security best practices in real-time?

Workflows and easy to understand evidence tailored for user-driven events that require collaboration with teams outside IT and across the digital productivity stack.

Irrefutable visual evidence of wrongdoing

You need clear and irrefutable evidence when insiders commit highly risky behavior on endpoints, servers, and desktop, web and cloud applications, and with files and data.

ITM can visually capture insider activity as screenshots before and after the threat signal(s). With insider threat response you now have irrefutable evidence and compliance documentation that are understood by any team – HR, Legal, Privacy, business units and beyond.
