Current SIEM solutions provide security intelligence on the status of data and systems but are unable to provide detailed visibility into precisely what employees are doing with corporate-owned computers and information. By streaming intelligence on user activity into HP ArcSight, Spector 360 increases the level of visibility into employee-driven security events and risky activities. HP ArcSight customers taking advantage of the SpectorSoft integration will be able to analyze a comprehensive set of user activity data about email sent and received, chat/IM/BBM, websites visited, application use, Web searches, file transfers, data printed or saved to removable devices, keystrokes and BlackBerry usage. Additionally, customers can configure their deployments to provide ArcSight with keyword-based and activity-based alert data to identify critical activity requiring further investigation. Visibility into these types of actions and alerts significantly increases the ability of HP ArcSight customers to identify data theft, data loss, data corruption and deletion, employee fraud, identity theft and productivity loss. The solution also gives context to questionable events, enabling organizations to identify possible problems sooner and with greater confidence in their evidence.
"As we've seen in the Edward Snowden and other insider-threat cases, organizations are under constant attack from employees looking to gain access to valuable information that can lead to extreme financial and security consequences," said Mike Tierney, vice president of operations. "This partnership brings advanced threat-detection capabilities to a wide range of organizations using the HP ArcSight solution, strengthening protection against malicious employees and closing doors on the insider threat."
