Removable Device Auditing

Organizations usually devote most of their resources to preventing external security threats. However, insider threats are equally dangerous and must be kept at bay. Sensitive data theft can severely damage organizations. USB drives are often used for this purpose because they are small and can contain large amounts of data. It is therefore essential to audit their use to:

  • Prevent sensitive data from leaving your organization.
  • Prevent the introduction of malicious content, such as viruses or spyware, to your organization's network.

  • Credit Union of Denver has been using EventLog Analyzer for more than four years for our internal user activity monitoring. EventLog Analyzer provides great value as a network forensic tool and for regulatory due diligence. This product can rapidly be scaled to meet our dynamic business needs.

  • The best thing, I like about the application, is the well structured GUI and the automated reports. This is a great help for network engineers to monitor all the devices in a single dashboard. The canned reports are a clever piece of work.
