User classification empowers users to classify ITAR data based on business requirements.

Protection from Insider and Outsider Threats

Our purpose-built, cloud-native architecture utilizes streaming data from endpoint and network sensors to provide immediate, deep visibility into system, data and user events.

Flexible and Automated Controls

Controls operate silently until needed, then automatically respond to risky behavior. Employees are educated in real-time on the appropriate handling of ITAR-regulated data via prompts. Actions that violate data protection policy are blocked or contained before personal data gets out. Role based controls can redact portions of documents for some users while allowing full access to others.
