What are the VPN users doing?
Brentwood, CA (PRWEB) July 29, 2009
Websecure Technology, a leader in information security, regulatory compliance, today has announced its partnership with San Jose based company PacketMotion. PacketMotion has designed an innovative product family to address the insider visibility challenge. The solution provides IT and security organizations User Activity Management: comprehensive visibility and control of users and assets, but without the drawbacks of high cost, complexity and risk.
Unlike solutions that depend on logging sources, this innovative and exciting technology can be deployed in a morning, and will be providing business relevant audit reports, policy alerting and enforcement by the close of business that same day.
Monitoring and controlling high-risk users such as VPN and wireless users, IT administrators, contractors, and employees who have given notice is now a few mouse clicks away. It provides change control management for Active Directory and Windows or NFS file permissions, and can even correlate the use of shared administrator accounts with the identities of the actual IT employees that use them. And perhaps most crucially, no server or client agents or in-line appliances means no risk to application performance or up-time.
The Insider Visibility Challenge
In a recent survey, over 90% of IT organizations said they lacked sufficient visibility of internal network activity. While there has been ample attention paid to protecting the perimeter, simple questions such as "Who accessed this file?" or "What are the VPN users doing?" go unanswered. This lack of visibility leads to a number of challenges: Regulatory Compliance, Data protection, Security Investigations, Data Identification and Classification, Cost, Complexity, Applications, and Risk.
Websecure Technology's recent and exciting acquisition of Data-LinX will catapolt Websecure into the world of Cloud computing and virtualization. This exciting addition will allow Websecure Technology to provide innovative solutions to organizations to reduce capital & operating costs and add IT flexibility and efficiency with virtualization and cloud computing.
