Latakko & Veriato
While Latakko trusts its employees, it’s still important for the company to monitor for insider threats – both malicious and inadvertent. In fact, studies show that 85 percent of employees admit to taking company documents and information they had created, when they leave employment, and more than half of security professionals say insider threats have become more frequent. Latakko needed a solution to both help
prevent insider threats and monitor employee activity. “With insider threats in the international news nearly every day, we wanted to take whatever steps necessary to prevent these types of issues now rather than have to react to any problems after the fact, which can be extremely expensive,” said Rimants Karanausks, CSO, Latakko. After doing research on its own, and testing several options, the company contacted Data Security Solutions, an IT security specialist with international experience protecting its customers against cyber-criminals and disloyal employees.
DSS recommended Latakko use Veriato 360. The software tracks online and communications activity, and presents detailed, accurate and actionable data so organizations can investigate and respond immediately to any insider threat. Veriato 360 can also be used to monitor employee productivity. Veriato 360 is deployed on endpoints – including desktop computers and laptops, providing a system of record of all employee activity. “Veriato was easier and faster to deploy than the other solutions we tried, and included a variety of features others didn’t – all at a responsible price we could work with,” Karanausks said. Fortunately for Latakko, Veriato 360 hasn’t detected any suspicious employee behavior, but Karanausks is happy to have the software available just in case. “Veriato 360 is doing exactly what it says it does, providing us with visibility into the online and communication activity of our employees to help prevent any attacks from the inside,” he said.
“We hope we never need to use what the software records, but we’d rather make the investment upfront now to help prevent the loss of our valuable intellectual property from any employees who might be tempted to share it or take it with them when they leave. This is a form of insurance that can be invaluable to any organization.”
