You don’t have to look far for the next big threat to your data and network. Company insiders can steal sensitive data and sabotage assets quickly, easily, and with greater stealth than an external attacker. Careless and negligent insiders also pose a threat, even if their intentions are not malicious.
Threats can stem from simple activities like uploading, emailing, and posting sensitive data, or manipulating data within a mission-critical application or database — insider activities that most security controls don’t detect. Nation-states and organized crime groups have also registered the value of the insider connection, finding that their return on investment is far better when they recruit an attacker from the inside rather than hack from the outside.
To combat this threat, you need a new level of visibility into your organization, driven by security controls that work together across endpoints, networks, and data. Leveraged together, these controls result in strong incident detection, protection, and response capabilities.
In this solution guide, learn how McAfee can help enterprises defend critical assets from insider threats. The strategy includes installing data loss prevention controls on the network and desktop; leveraging solutions that monitor how information is moving around the network and how it is being manipulated on the desktop and moved to thumb drives; monitoring how users interact with information; employing controls that protect information at rest, in motion, and in use; guarding data on all endpoints, even mobile devices; and stopping data leaks on social media platforms.
