AgentX is a Windows based agent that may be easily deployed on typical IT infrastructure.
AgentX provides the knowledge to effectively identify and deter insider data theft, putting you back in control of your organization’s information assets.
Recent studies report that 85% of all intellectual property theft is perpetrated by a company’s own employees - some are angry, some are greedy, some are just foolish. Regardless of motivation, employees have two things in common: knowledge and access. They know what’s important, they know where to find it, and they have access to a company’s information assets.
AgentX is invaluable when dealing with the termination of employees. With the HR Exit Report in hand, a manager can immediately determine whether the employee copied proprietary data in the period preceding a resignation, layoff, or termination.
AgentX provides a report of all removable media and portable drives that were connected to an employee’s computer, as well as the data files that were transferred to them. Did an employee transfer sensitive files to a USB thumb drive or burn a CD immediately before giving notice of resignation? Suspicious activity immediately bubbles to the surface.
AgentX records when executables run from a removable drive. Since many viruses spread by copying themselves onto removable flash memory and then executing when the memory is plugged into another computer, AgentX provides an excellent early warning of possible malware infection.
AgentX establishes a baseline of employee behavior. A break in that pattern may indicate a problem which warrants proactive action. AgentX helps identify risks of data loss by monitoring activity associated with routine backups and other innocuous transfers that occur over time.
By monitoring employee use of removable devices, AgentX provides evidence of compliance or violations of acceptable use policy.
AgentX logs all file activity involving portable storage media – it can even detect data exfiltration and concealment attempts by identifying files in archive files, such as WinZip.
If sensitive data ever becomes lost or stolen, AgentX can save thousands of dollars in investigation costs by quickly and definitively providing answers to the who, where, what, when, and hows of an incident. AgentX is a useful tool to accelerate forensics investigations, track down misplaced data, and recover company property.
