Disruptions 
VERO BEACH, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 01/15/13 --  SpectorSoft
Corporation, the leader in employee monitoring solutions, today
announced availability of SPECTOR 360 7.5. With this latest version,
organizations using SpectorSoft solutions can extend granular
monitoring, recording and alerting over all employee activities
taking place on devices running Windows and Mac OSs and
company-issued BlackBerry smartphones. Detailed employee monitoring
for all leading corporate computing devices and operating systems
allows SpectorSoft customers to gain unified visibility into
employees' digital and mobile activities and behaviors, including
what information they are sharing, what they are communicating across
messaging platforms, what websites they are visiting, and what
applications they are accessing. This ability allows security teams
to identify, address and immediately mitigate high-risk behaviors
that can lead to costly data breache
s, brand damage and business
disruptions.  
"Windows dominates the corporate IT environment, Mac is building
market share, and according to RIM, 90 percent of the Fortune 500 and
over 10 million SMBs use BlackBerry to enable their mobile
workforces. Organizations that don't have visibility into employee
digital behaviors taking place across these leading devices and OSs
are at risk of compliance violations and costly data breaches," said
Jason Judge, CEO of SpectorSoft. "Any enterprise that needs to know,
understand and quickly address employee activities taking place
across multiple devices and OSs can use SPECTOR 360 to gain immediate
visibility into activities and start receiving actionable
intelligence that can be used to reduce risk within days of
deployment." 
"Employees are the heart of insider risk, often inadvertently
violating corporate policies or best practices, and most
organizations struggle to understand how their behaviors and
communications are impacting security. Lack of visibility and insight
into what employees are doing with sensitive and regulated
information is leaving corporations vulnerable to threats and data
breaches," said Michael Osterman, principal and founder of Osterman
Research. "SpectorSoft is the first security solutions provider to
unify visibility into employee activities taking place across
BlackBerry, Windows and Mac OSs, an advancement that provides
organizations with an unprecedented level of intelligence into how
information is accessed and shared. This represents a leap forward
that organizations can use to improve security, achieve compliance
and reduce their risk exposure." 
To continue to provide unmatched visibility into employee activities
taking place on leading devices and OSs, SpectorSoft has added to
SPECTOR 360 7.5, in addition to PC and Mac monitoring, an enhanced
range of features: 


 
--  BlackBerry Monitoring -- Customers can monitor and record call data,
    chat conversations and emails sent and received on mobile phones.
--  BES Server Integration -- BlackBerry monitoring data is drawn from the
    same source as the operational and systems management information.
--  Quick View Reports -- An additional 25 turnkey, easy-to-read reports
    are customizable to unique business environments.
--  Intelligent Activity Drill-Down -- Users can quickly identify actions
    in question without having to sort through tens of thousands of
    actions in a single day.
--  Active-Time Focus -- Users can easily and clearly differentiate
    between how long an application is opened and/or left idle and one
    that is opened and actively used. This allows businesses to understand
    whether employees are actually working within an open application.

  
"Risk associated with employee digital behavior is forcing businesses
to acknowledge that the only way to preserve security is to closely
monitor all activities, communications, and information access and
sharing that takes place," said Nick Cavalancia, vice president of
marketing, SpectorSoft. "By adding monitoring for BlackBerry, we are
giving our customers unified visibility into activities that take
place across the most frequently used computing and mobile platforms,
allowing them to improve their security and compliance programs
significantly."
