What is Workforce Cyber Intelligence?
Workforce Cyber Intelligence is a new approach to enterprise data collection and analysis that focuses on understanding how, when, why, where and for how long employees and third parties interact with data, machines, applications, and their peers as they perform their job responsibilities to create a safer, smarter, and more secure enterprise.
Protect your data. Respect your workforce.
Workforce Cyber Intelligence is designed for today’s modern, distributed workforce model. It provides complete visibility into user and account activity – keeping all data anonymous to protect privacy, and only shining a light on abnormal or inefficient behaviors that indicate risks and areas for operational improvement.
The Three Motivations Behind Workforce Cyber Intelligence
Employees have the right to know that personal activities and behaviors that don’t directly increase organizational risk, cause cultural conflict, or limit successful operations remain private and anonymous.
The workforce is an organization’s greatest asset and biggest risk. It’s never been more important to protect employees from exploitation by external attackers while also limiting the risk they pose as trusted insiders. The erosion of the cyber-perimeter and the accelerated shift to virtual workforce models necessitate a new approach that baselines activities and behaviors and protects employees by highlighting anomalies.
Monitoring the workforce to identify nonproductive employees is counterproductive and creates a culture of mistrust. The focus must shift to learning from the workforce – observing employees’ interactions with data, systems, and machines – and using that intelligence to improve performance.
Workforce Cyber Intelligence Use Cases
By collecting and analyzing employee and third-party interactions with data, machines, and applications, Workforce Cyber Intelligence supports a wide range of use cases:
Supporting Employee Wellness
Workforce Cyber Intelligence data can help organizations identify employees at risk of burn-out.
Optimizing Asset and License Utilization
Workforce Cyber Intelligence reveals why employees are using enterprise assets to help IT and procurement teams understand what’s working and what’s not.

Identify patterns of behavior to prevent threats before they become realized risks.
Remote Worker Security
Protect WFH employees beyond corporate firewalls or network proxies.
Workforce Cyber Intelligence informs conversations about individual performance, professional development, and growth strategies.
Informing Financial and Operational Planning
Measure team performance to aid planning.
Data Loss Prevention
Understand malicious intent long before traditional DLP measures are triggered.
Anonymize data to satisfy GDPR requirements.
