The worst threats often come from within. Employees clicking on phishing emails, selecting weak passwords or even selling credentials to third parties can trigger a data breach that costs millions. The problem is that there aren’t many solutions available to stop negligent and malicious insiders from leaking information. 

That’s why today, Cyberhaven announced the launch of the Insider Threat Platform it claims is the industry’s first data detection and response (DDR) platform that can prevent data leaks in real time. The solution has the ability to detect data misuse and theft, and can automatically intercept an attacker exfiltrating data. 

For enterprises, this approach offers the ability to reduce the chance of malicious and negligent insiders either leaking information themselves or providing other threat actors with access to the environment. In short, it provides better protection for intellectual property and other high value data, the company says.

The reality of insider threats 

The release comes as insider risk is becoming a bigger threat to enterprise data. In fact, insider threats are so common that almost one in ten employees (9.4%) will exfiltrate data over a six-month period.
