Leading Research University Deploys User Behavior Intelligence Solution to Secure Critical IT Systems
THE HAGUE, THE NETHERLANDS and SAN JOSE, CA–(Marketwired – Jun 20, 2017) – Dtex Systems, a leader in user behavior intelligence and insider threat detection, today announced that Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU Amsterdam) has chosen the company’s flagship platform to secure sensitive data within its IT infrastructure from insider threats. As one of the largest universities in The Netherlands, VU Amsterdam realizes the vital importance user behavior intelligence plays in the modern cybersecurity landscape. The university is committed to protecting organizations from not only the outside hacker, but also from network vulnerabilities unknowingly created by the students and staff who use its IT services regularly.
“As cyber threats continue to plague all organizations, we expect the number of attacks against public universities to rise unless administrators proactively take steps to better identify and mitigate them,” said Christy Wyatt, CEO at Dtex Systems. “This is why it is crucial for all universities to have visibility into their users’ behavior at the point closest to the user: the endpoint. Without this visibility, administrators will always be one step behind, unable to detect negligent behavior that puts its users and networks at risk.”
By deploying Dtex, VU Amsterdam can identify and mitigate potential threats before material damage occurs without compromising the functionality of an open IT infrastructure — allowing students and staff to continue to efficiently and effectively do their jobs. With the industry’s most comprehensive library of thousands of known user threat behavior patterns enhanced with advanced risk modeling and combined risk scoring, the Dtex Advanced User Behavior Intelligence Platform can identify abnormal user behavior and provide contextual insights that help inform action.
