Warding off insider threats

Raytheon Oakley Systems has chosen e-discovery software from Kazeon Systems as part of its insider threat solution.

Raytheon Oakley, a division of Raytheon Security, will use Kazeon's Information Server to search and classify sensitive data, such as social security numbers, within an organization's network, and to store the data securely. Raytheon Oakley then creates a footprint for the data, which allows it to be monitored to prevent insider threats of theft and data leaks, according to a press release from Kazeon.

Derek Smith, president of Raytheon Oakley Systems, says the combined solution covers data at rest or in motion across the network and endpoints. "Our customers are increasingly demanding electronic data discovery as part of their security portfolio. They know it's impossible to protect critical data if they don't know what it is or where it is in their enterprise," Smith says.

If uninformed users expose sensitive data, Raytheon Oakley can detect the policy violation, notify the user of the policy and report the violation. When a malicious insider tries to steal intellectual property or customer data, Raytheon Oakley can prevent the activity, alert the appropriate investigator, prioritize the incident by severity and capture visual evidence of the crime, according to the news release.

Raytheon Oakley is a reseller of Kazeon Information Server.
