Today’s compliance places strict limitations on the types of people who can access sensitive financial and corporate data. Unfortunately, many compliant organizations have little or no insight into who these users are and what they are doing, putting themselves at risk for data breaches, fines and, in some cases, imprisonment. These companies realize the need to monitor users involved with accessing, storing and auditing sensitive corporate information, yet their current data security systems often lack this functionality.
With detailed logs and user activities recordings of all users – on any server, workstation or application – you can exceed the strictest interpretation of compliance requirements with conclusive evidence for compliance auditors. These audit reports can be completed in a fraction of the time, with the ability to instantly – search, analyze and view the drilled down reports for any evidence. Here’s how ProActeye user activity monitoring addresses specific compliance section requirements.
