Dtex Systems Earns U.S. Department of Defense Authority to Operate
Company’s Modern User Activity Monitoring Solution Meets Stringent Data Security Standards
SAN JOSE, Calif. — July 29, 2019 — Dtex Systems, the leader in insider threat intelligence and detection, today announced today announced the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has granted Authority to Operate (ATO) to the company’s modern user activity monitoring solution. The DoD authorization allows Dtex’s critical insider threat detection and management capabilities to be deployed across DoD system networks in the U.S. and globally.
Earning this distinction requires that the Dtex solution meet or exceed the DoD's stringent cybersecurity thresholds and incorporates measures to minimize cyber risk, a requirement of the Federal Government’s Risk Management Framework (RMF). The RMF was developed by the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) to help the DoD and Federal agencies manage pressing cybersecurity threats — such as insider threats — more efficiently and effectively.
“This is a noteworthy milestone for the company, as we are deeply committed to supporting the Federal Government in their mission to ensure the confidentiality, availability and integrity of federal information and information systems,” said Bill Ronca, SVP of Worldwide Sales at Dtex. “We look forward to equipping government organizations with our modern user activity monitoring capabilities and empowering them to protect sensitive, mission-critical data from insider threats.”
As workplace connectivity increases and the number of endpoints and users multiplies alongside, sensitive data becomes more vulnerable to access and misuse by careless, malicious or unauthorized users. To help minimize this risk, Dtex’s modern user activity monitoring solution delivers the complete, endpoint-based visibility needed to pinpoint all types of insider threats.
More specifically, Dtex will provide Federal Government organizations with:
- User activity data enriched with machine learning and behavioral models to provide actionable insights
- The ability to proactively highlight the highest areas of risk and quickly identify abnormal or suspicious activity
- Lightweight data collection that can be deployed without removing other endpoint agents and scaled organization-wide without negative performance impact
