StaffCop Advantages

StaffCop Advantages

 

  • Helps reduce the risks of data leakage and loss of reputation

 

Monitor Privileged Users & Vendors with StaffCop

Most privileged parties have access to core systems and data, making it incredibly difficult to detect a malicious user before they have caused damage. Obviously they have a significant advantage over external attackers. Besides already having access to elevated systems, they are aware of their organization’s policies, procedures, and technology and vulnerabilities. Privileged accounts are also the main targets for many external criminals looking to gain access to otherwise ‘secure’ systems.

For all of these reasons and the increasing complexity of the IT environment, privileged user monitoring, identity verification and privileged access management are becoming critical components in an organization’s security techniques. This is where StaffCop comes in.

 

StaffCop’s real-time user activity monitoring and data loss prevention solutions allow you to monitor privileged users and automatically detect anomalous behavior and suspicious activity that signal a compromised or malicious privileged user. Examples of malicious behavior include: creation of back-door accounts, transmission of sensitive data outside the company etc.

Further, StaffCop’s Intelligent Policy & Rules Engine automatically implements data protection and access control rules on the compromised privileged user to prevent data exfiltration, IP theft, fraud, industrial espionage, sabotage and other malicious attempts.

Leveraging its complete session recording and metadata analysis and immutable logging features, StaffCop’s Privileged User Monitoring conducts threat analysis, forensic investigation and security auditing. Finally, expand your security coverage to encompass your entire organization with StaffCop’s built-in integration with security information and event management (SIEM) and threat analytics systems. Essentially, StaffCop’s privileged user monitoring allows you to:

  • Identify and monitor all privileged users including system administrators, DBAs, network engineers, system architects, developers, IT auditors, remote users, third-party vendors etc.
  • Enforce a ‘zero-trust’ data loss prevention (DLP) strategy utilizing activity, system-access, schedule and content-based rules.
  • Create monitoring and access profiles according to a user’s role, separation of duties, existing Active Directory Group Policy or on a need to know basis.
  • Use immutable logs, session recording and real-time alerts and notifications to audit privileged sessions, detect credential sharing, and other abuse of root accounts.

 

  • Visibility and Control

StaffCop monitors all user activity over endpoints, servers/terminal servers, network and the Cloud covering of 22+ system objects including: websites, apps, emails, file transfers and on-screen content in real-time.

 

  • Detect Anomalies with Intelligent Behavioral Engine

StaffCop’s intelligent behavioral engine prevents the mishandling of sensitive data like sharing over the Cloud or removable media.

 

  • Conduct Forensic Investigation and IT Audit

StaffCop uses video/audio recording of all user activity, session recording, immutable logs, alerts, optional OCR search and similar features to conduct audit and forensic investigations. Combined they provide a wide collection of investigation data to locate the cause and source of any privileged user related threats with pinpoint accuracy.

 

  • Risk Analysis to Identify Security Gaps & Vulnerabilities

This software solution can also identify high risk users, policy and rules and system components thanks to its dynamic risk scoring and vulnerabilities scanning feature. It also provides trend graphs and severity mapping that warn administrators about any change in threat level before it becomes critical.

 

  • Protect Data and Privacy with Endpoint DLP

Schedule employees by shift or workload and easily inform all employees about any updates.

  • Conform with Regulatory Compliance

With StaffCop you can monitor privileged users and manage their access while also adhering to major compliance regimens, including HIPAA, PCI-DSS, GDPR, ISO 27001 etc.

System-Wide Monitoring & Control

Every action that a privileged user makes on your IT systems including endpoints, servers/terminal servers, network and the Cloud for 22+ system objects like: web, apps, email, file transfers, etc. is visually recorded by StaffCop. Each object can be configured to take into consideration what needs to be monitored and who has access to the monitored records, allowing for instant administrative oversight in respect to all user activity while complying with any privacy requirements. Also, monitoring continues even when systems are offline.

 

Real-Time Alerts and Notifications

Real-time alerts and trend reports show what rules were violated, when, by whom, what action was taken and the context. You'll also receive instant warning or scheduled notification emails of suspicious user activity. Plus you can search for all users or a particular user or group activity.

 

 

Behavioral Anomaly Detection

To detect suspicious behavior all you have to do is define what constitutes dangerous or harmful user behavior and StaffCop’s sophisticated anomaly engine will automatically detect when a user, department or group deviates from their normal parameters or exceeds acceptable risk levels. Identifying anomalies in applications, emails, network, file activities and printing, notifying administrators about harmful user activity, locking out users or taking remote control of the compromised system before any malicious or fraudulent attempts are made, are other functions of StaffCop.

 

 

Authentication and Access Control

Another key characteristic of StaffCop is its Identity based authentication and segregated access control. These features prevents unauthorized access or sharing of confidential data by allowing administrators to setup an access account for each privileged user that needs authorized clearance and easily track what each user is doing at any given time. Group profiles allows you to create different access levels based on departments, job function or source of access (i.e. remote/third-party etc.) and then define what information and system resources each group can access.

 

Session Recording and Audit

StaffCop visually records every action that a user makes while on a machine, allowing for both live viewing and pas recordings. Extensive meta data and fast indexing allows past incidents to be searched and retrieved in seconds. Optional audio support for the recording of both sound outputs and inputs, ensuring that all audio coming from speakers and microphones is captured. Recorded files can be exported and downloaded as MP4 files. Immutable session logs and systems logs can be exported as PDF/CSV file or sent to a log monitoring and analytics software like LogRythm.

 

 

  • Gives transparency in the workflow

 

The risk of third-party vendor access

Third party vendors, partners, consultants and outsourced contractors are usually granted privileged access to a company’s internal systems through root or domain administration rights. Due to this access, they can easily change system configuration, steal company data as well as sabotage critical infrastructure. Even with no malicious intent, an external vendor is a major security risk. Industries such as banking and healthcare have strict regulatory requirements - where vendor monitoring is mandatory to ensure privacy and protection while data is transferred or processed between two parties.

 

These factors are reasons enough for organizations to set up a security perimeter when giving access to external vendors and contractors. And find a technique to continuously monitor all vendor activity to ensure they conform to the company’s security policy and rules.

Additionally, some compliance regulations require organizations to keep a detailed record of any security, privacy or data breach incidents caused by a third-party.
