Enterprise Visibility, Protection, and Privacy
Insider Risk Management solutions have evolved from the convergence of specific attributes taken from Endpoint DLP, User Activity Monitoring (UAM) and User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA).
Importantly, IRM solutions leverage a metadata approach combined with advanced behavioral analysis to arrive at the same outcomes as the Insider Threat Surveillance solutions (i.e., successful prosecution of insider threats). However, some key benefits of the IRM approach are the ability to identify risks and threats without impacting privacy, endpoint performance, and, most importantly, the capability to proactively remediate insider incidents before they actually happen.
Insider Threat Surveillance vs. Insider Risk Intelligence
Insider Threat Surveillance tools have evolved from the “Employee Monitoring” software category and have been traditionally deployed to watch targeted high-risk endpoints or for employees with prior negative conduct or suspicious history. These solutions rely on invasive capabilities to react to insider threat activities including computer screen recording, conversation content scanning, file content scanning, email content scanning, and keystroke logging.
The latest research brief from Enterprise Management Associates: The Evolving Dynamics Between Insider Risk, Privacy, and Compliance discusses these tools and how privacy and compliance can still be achieved with the right insider risk management program.

Global Scalability with Dynamic Reporting
Unlike intrusive employee surveillance capabilities that are system resource and network bandwidth intensive by nature, requiring larger than normal processing power from the endpoint device and additional cloud storage, Insider Risk Management offers the ability to readily scale to hundreds of thousands of endpoints with continuous visibility in near real-time. This means out-of-the-box automated reports and dashboards containing intuitive and pivotable visualizations that are easy to understand and actionable within hours of install.
