Teramind User Activity Monitoring

Activity Monitoring, User Behavior Analytics, Productivity Optimization & Insider Threat Detection in a Single Platform

Most organizations have cybersecurity measures in place including antivirus, firewall, intrusion detection to protect infrastructure and IT assets. These tools are good at defending organizations from external threats.

However, they leave a security hole to users who already have access to an organization’s valuable assets and sensitive data. These users include employees, internal users, third party vendors, contractors and privileged administrators.

Unwanted and unmonitored behavior by employees is one of the biggest security risks to companies. It only takes one insider to expose an organization’s intellectual property, financial records, customer data, PII, PHI or other sensitive material.

In fact, the majority of the data breaches in recent years involved weak or exploited employee credentials either by malicious or accidental incident (source).

User Activity Monitoring (UAM) can help fill these security gaps. To properly monitor web activity of users, UAM includes features like Employee Monitoring, Privileged User Monitoring, Third-Party Monitoring, User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA), Endpoint Security etc.

Teramind’s User Activity Monitoring is a holistic insider threat prevention solution.

How To Monitor User Activity

User activity monitoring is the process of monitoring web activity of users. With a PC activity monitoring solution in place, businesses have the necessary means to keep an eye on their sensitive data.

With UAM, businesses can monitor web activity of users to identify and stop the misuse of company data and resources.

Teramind User Activity Monitoring Combines UAM, Behavior Analytics, and Productivity Tools

Teramind user activity monitoring goes beyond the basic employee monitoring and the computer activity tracker functionality. Teramind’s UAM adds intelligent behavior-based analysis to provide actionable insights.

These actionable insights allow businesses to create automated responses to employee generated threats. Monitoring web activity of users and employees is crucial to understanding threats and solutions.

Teramind’s PC activity monitor can monitor employees, third-party vendors, contractors, remote and special/privileged users. With its rules and policies, Teramind’s user activity monitoring captures violation incidents as forensic evidence.

Teramind’s computer activity tracker can then take actions to alert, stop, and block threats. A secure and holistic PC activity monitoring system can ensure threats by your users are quickly identified and stopped.

User Activity Monitoring And Productivity Tracking

Teramind’s PC activity monitoring also measures employee productivity. This system keeps track of how employees and third-party vendors access company resources. The PC activity monitoring system will also conduct risk analysis and prevent unauthorized data exfiltration.

Session Recordings To Monitor Web Activity Of Users

Finally, in case of a data breach or security incident, Teramind provides comprehensive forensic data and session recordings. These sessions recordings can identify the employees and vendors who have triggered a rule violation. Teramind’s user activity monitoring software will also show the user’s activity footprint with pinpoint accuracy.

Teramind Comes with Powerful User & Entity Behavior Analytics Capabilities

Teramind user activity monitoring features user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) capabilities. These features identify and alert organizations to a wide range of anomalous behavior and potential threats.

Common areas threats come by are either a malicious, inadvertent or compromised employee, user or third-party entity. Using a PC activity monitoring software will identify and stop these threats quickly.

Teramind automatically creates a behavioral baseline taking into account a user’s activity. For example:

  • Number of times a file is accessed
  • Usage patterns
  • Entity role
  • Time of day
  • Assigned project activites

Teramind monitors the web activity of users to find any anomaly or deviation from the normal baseline. When the PC activity monitoring system detects any abnormal behavior it will trigger real-time alerts and notifications.

Teramind’s Intelligent Policy & Rule Engine then combines this UEBA capability to proactively prevent insider threats. The system also provides the organization with a clear and complete picture of all activity, context and forensic evidence in a single solution.
