Newly Available from SDS, VitalSigns Detective Helps Secure Organizations from Insider Fraud

Share Article

Financial research shows that insiders are the chief source of commercial fraud. Last month, Software Diversified Services began providing a tool to quietly monitor threats and lower risk.

In September, Software Diversified Services (SDS) began providing a unique software tool for enterprise fraud detection. The new VitalSigns Detective VitalSigns Detective allows companies and governments to monitor every screen, every keystroke and every message on their computers, no matter who is using them.

As recently as 2008, more than half of bank fraud was the work of bank employees and executives, according to Celent, a research and consulting firm with offices worldwide.

The typical inside fraud scheme goes undetected for 18 months, according the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, and the median loss to the victim organizations is $160,000.

"Smart, safe companies are turning to fraud detection software in increasing numbers," said Jim Lampi, vice president, Software Diversified Services. "So we are glad SDS can now help them address the issue."

"VitalSigns Detective fraud detection software works silently and effectively," said Lampi, "to root out any insider fraud issues and provide comprehensive enterprise fraud management for businesses of all sizes."

In addition, VitalSigns Detective fraud detection software offers:

  • Complete real-time monitoring of all user interactions;
  • Immediate alerts when user activity exceeds set thresholds or triggers red flags regarding insider fraud and mainframe computer fraud;
  • Customized recording of specific time frames, display headings, user IDs, field names, field values and more;
  • Silent detection that doesn't bog down host machines or alert users;
  • Response-time analysis, archiving and regulatory compliance as well as support for internal investigations.

Through its zero-footprint technology, VitalSigns Detective is the only software tool for IBM mainframe and iSeries servers that allows companies to record and analyze all end-user interactions with legacy applications non-invasively and in real time.
