Dtex Systems provides user behavioral intelligence that supports organisations to overcome the threat of the insider breach. This can be negligence by the end user or malicious in intent.
Most organisations rely on traditional security such as Firewalls and Anti-Virus, that enables some form of data loss prevention (DLP). These solutions are designed to avoid an employee-generated data breach. However, this software focuses on locking and blocking the flow of files and intellectual property (We are not saying there is anything wrong with DLP. The more layers of security the better). However, they do not provide intelligence into the intent of the user. This means, there is a significant gap in the risk profile. Following an investigation, they often lack the data set to provide HR/IT with sufficient confidence to challenge an end user on their behavior. This is because the data set cannot differentiate between a negligent or malicious activity, therefore the business cannot act accordingly.
Dtex is an established Silicon Valley cybersecurity company with a focus on the endpoint. We would assert our position that any successful User & Entity Behaviour Analytics (UEBA) project ultimately starts with the right data. Organisations that specialise in UEBA realise very quickly that no matter how good the math. Or, how good the UI of the chosen solution, trying to reverse engineer a user’s activities from disparate log data sources requires a significant services investment. This often results in detections of anomalies with insufficient context to take any real action. Hence, the right data set must be as close as possible to the individual user (i.e. the endpoint).
