West Palm Beach, FL (December 12, 2023) – Veriato, a global provider of insider risk management and productivity solutions today announced that they have been included as a representative vendor in the 2023 Gartner Market Guide for Insider Risk Management Solutions for the second year in a row. Veriato has designed their AI-based solution with human behavior in mind. Insiders, through negligence or malicious behavior create risk for companies in terms of theft, fraud, non-compliance and low productivity that is often detected too late to avoid cost to the organization with an IRM solution in place.

Gartner notes that there are a number of mandatory and optional capabilities that IRM software includes. Mandatory capabilities include:

  • “Orchestration with other cybersecurity tooling
  • Monitoring of employee activity and assimilating into a behavior-based risk model
  • Dashboarding and alerting of high-risk activity
  • Orchestration and initiation of intervention workflows”

Veriato not only offers all mandatory capabilities, they also deliver optional capabilities including endpoint agent-based monitoring, data-centric misuse detection and network interception and session reconstruction.

Insider Risk Management is an important cybersecurity layer that can detect human-caused risk before many threat solutions detect an issue. Gartner notes that “Insider risk management differs from conventional attack detection because the initial vector of attack is a properly authorized user. As a result, many traditional threat-hunting techniques or tools to detect unauthorized access fail to see insider threats.”

“We are thrilled to be included in the Gartner Market Guide for Insider Risk Management. Insiders expose organizations to risk every day, and many threat solutions are not built to detect issues early enough. Veriato’s human-centric solution delivers the early detection and a paper trail that complements other cybersecurity solutions for a more holistic approach,” said Elizabeth Hartz, CEO at Veriato.
