DTEX Systems, the Workforce Cyber Intelligence & Security CompanyTM, today announced a new release of DTEX InTERCEPTTM for Behavioral Data Loss Prevention. The solution is the industry’s first and only Zero Trust ‘People-Centric’ Endpoint DLP product designed to address the data protection and insider risk challenges of the distributed and digital enterprise.
Data Loss Prevention solutions are integral to every public and private organization’s cybersecurity framework. First-generation solutions have struggled in modern environments, as they deliver slow time to value, come with heavy on-premises deployment models, and only deliver partial data-lifecycle visibility. In addition, the lack of context and user behavioral analysis informing automated prevention actions results in a high number of false-positives, reducing efficacy and the ability to meet organizational investment and data security objectives.
“Modern DLP requires a multi-faceted approach, which the InTERCEPT platform embraces. By utilizing machine learning and “next-generation” behavioral analytics, DTEX looks to address the limitations it sees with today’s approach to DLP by looking broadly at a number of vectors when assessing how any piece of information is being used,” said Paul Stringfellow, Senior Analyst with GigaOm. “DTEX does not rely solely on data classification, though it still plays a role in its approach. This solution instead uses a data lineage approach, not looking at individual data actions in isolation but rather at the who, what, where, when, and why of usage to build a more detailed and accurate picture of user intent.”
The data-centric approach of traditional DLP tools comes at a notable cost and time commitment for endpoint security specialists and SOC teams as the configuration and administration of the rules and policies that are meant to stop data exfiltration and trigger alerts require constant tuning to be effective. The newest release of DTEX InTERCEPT for Behavioral Data Loss Prevention further addresses the design, architectural, and functional inadequacies of first-generation, data-centric Endpoint DLP solutions.
“With DTEX InTERCEPT, we understand what is happening to our data, who is using it, and where it is going, because we can truly evaluate behavior,” said Bruce Moore, CIO at the Victorian Rail Track Corporation. “If important data is being used or replicated in ways that seem abnormal or unnecessary, such as attempts to copy to external drives or uploads to non-corporate cloud storage sites, this signals a risk. If this behavior is negligent, we can take steps to educate the user. If it is malicious, we can take appropriate action to ensure that data meant for our organization, stays within our organization.”
