Protect data and
networks from internal
security threats

You’ve spent millions keeping your data safe from hackers
outside the organization. But thanks to the popularity of small
data storage devices such as USB flash drives, MP3 players and
PDAs, it’s now easier to steal data from the inside than it is to
break in to your IT systems across the internet.
