Insider threat protection

In this clip, our CSO, Tracy Reinhold, discusses the need to turn to automated technology to protect against insider threats with a hybrid workforce. Today’s employees work throughout the day, and technology helps to ensure insider-threat and security breaches can be easily detected and addressed.
