Insider threats are individuals with legitimate access to the company’s network who use their access, whether maliciously or unintentionally, in a way that causes harm to the organization.

Insider threats account for 60 percent of cyber attacks, and they are incredibly difficult to detect. In fact, most cases go unnoticed for months or years. Regardless of whether the insider is a malicious employee or a contractor whose credentials have been compromised, security teams need the ability to quickly and accurately detect, investigate and respond to these potentially damaging attacks.
