Ans. Productivity and End Point Security were the themes around which various use cases made us look for a solution like UBA. The pandemic scenario only accelerated our implementation. Some detailed use cases like login/log out time, hours of work, applications that were used while working, monitoring key users and applications, along with alerts in the event of abnormal behaviour pattern and much more became the focus of our requirement.
Ans. In the early stages of decision making, we evaluated products from 3-4 vendors covering both local as well as international vendors.
What made you zero-in ARCON | UBA. What were the top 3 to 4 points after which you said yes that is what I am looking for?
Ans. The prominent features in ARCON | UBA which made me go for it are:
- The solution gives a complete overview of behaviour profiles along with data analytics to the security management team to implement secured application control
- The product collects all data centrally
- The solution provides insights for risky behaviour profiles
- It enables data profiling and anomaly detection using AI models
- Basic DLP functionality is also integrated with user behaviour analytics, thus having one more layer of data protection.
- It is a great tool to monitor the level of productivity across users during pandemic while they are working remotely
Ans. Our evaluation process started with feature comparison followed by POC and the commercial discussion. Eventually, the product was finalized post the above steps.
Ans. We had Endpoints with different versions of Windows Operating System (8 and 10) and also a mix of 32 and 64 Bit system. ARCON | UBA was able to meet our requirements and provided solution compatible with all systems.
Ans. The total time taken for implementation was around 15 days. We first implemented the solution and captured text recording for all users for two weeks. That data gave us visibility on the user’s behaviour. Based on the user behaviour report and its analysis we were able to create profiles of video recording, restrictions, etc. and apply the same in a matter of minutes and improve on our monitoring requirement.
