The security perimeter has evaporated, raising the stakes for insider risk detection and threat mitigation,” said Brian Stoner, Vice President, Worldwide Channel and Alliances, DTEX Systems.

The security perimeter has evaporated, raising the stakes for insider risk detection and threat mitigation,” said Brian Stoner, Vice President, Worldwide Channel and Alliances, DTEX Systems. “The future of data loss prevention and protection is human-centric, not data-centric. Together, GuidePoint and DTEX will help organizations better understand the human element impacting their security risk posture to develop more effective and efficient threat management programs without infringing on employee privacy.”

DTEX InTERCEPT is a first-of-its-kind Workforce Cyber Security solution that brings together the capabilities of Insider Threat Management, User and Entity Behavior Analytics, Digital Forensics, and Zero Trust Behavioral DLP in an all-in-one lightweight, cloud-native platform. Its patented DMAP+ technology continuously collects and synthesizes hundreds of unique elements of enterprise telemetry from data, machines, applications, and people to surface dynamic ‘Indicators of Intent’ that offer insight into anomalous, abnormal behavior and related events. Unlike data-centric DLP and UEBA tools or intrusive employee monitoring solutions, DTEX’s next-gen platform collects application metadata only, eliminating the need to scan files, capture email or website content, monitor electronic conversations, record screens, or log keystrokes.

In only a few months of partnership, GuidePoint Security and DTEX have been selected as the solution providers of choice for some of the world’s most well-known brands in the financial services and digital communications markets. Leveraging DTEX’s solutions, GuidePoint’s consultants provide customers with a comprehensive overview of their insider risk, identify gaps in coverage/policy, and develop roadmaps to help them achieve their objectives.
