TickStream.Activity is a software package that enables any organization to evaluate actions and events that happen on an endpoint. It can be purchased as a subscription or perpetual software license. TickStream analytics engines reveal a great deal of helpful information.
This information is used for a range of initiatives to help organizations improve business performance and reduce risk.
Remote Worker Productivity
Most studies show that remote workers are more productive than their office-bound counterparts. Companies still find it difficult to make the transition to remote work, even if it is only a fraction of the time. You can’t manage what you can’t measure. If the inability to measure what you manage has been keeping you from establishing a work from home program, TickStream has an answer.
Applications employees work in, and the intensity with which they’re working provide helpful guidance for both employees and management. Productive employees typically exert a lot of effort to generate great results. With remote workers, it can be more difficult to see the effort and to tie results to that effort. A quick snapshot with summary visuals makes it easy and you can drill down into the details whenever necessary. We provide connections to results by clearly identifying actions and events on an endpoint that show what happened, for how long and at what level of user intensity.
Detection of Malware
Malware and ransomware are becoming one of the most serious threats to an organization. Beyond just traditional viruses and worms that are easily blocked, a wide variety
of spyware, adware, rogue software, and scareware can often mimic legitimate applications and messages. New strains can often avoid detection and go to work exfiltrating
valuable company and personal information. In part, this is because malware can be introduced through social engineering or with the willing participation of an insider.
The perimeter security mechanisms don't provide a defense against these kind of threats, since they are introduced by an authorized user.
TickStream detects and reports on the execution of a new application and whether it is operated with or without the participation of the physical user, whether intentionally
or unintentionally. This provides a global insight, across an enterprise, to quickly identify potential malware.
SIEM/SOAR Threat Intelligence
With advanced and persistent threats occurring all around us, it’s important to understand what is really taking place on endpoints. TickStream reports applications and activities that are taking place on endpoints on your network. It’s more than just logging of events – it includes the following, enabling threat intelligence platforms to better identify risk:
- execution of applications (foreground and background)
- whether an app is installed and if it was installed intentionally or unintentionally
- time spent on applications and web pages
- activity associated with applications and web pages
- monitor use of remote desktop sessions
- summary information on activity and intensity of user interactions
TickStream provides valuable information to a well-developed threat intelligence program. We facilitate invoking a host’s security corrective actions to reduce risk.
Software License Utilization
Many companies deploy software solutions widely across their organizations with plans for corporate adoption of these tools. Change in business is happening at a faster pace than ever before. IT budgets are stretched, and IT administrators and engineers are overwhelmed with heavy workloads.
This creates situations where software applications and subscriptions are rarely or never used as originally intended. The cost of these licenses and subscriptions can really add up – and for no benefit to the organization. Leverage TickStream reports to reclaim unnecessary software spend and redirect substantial cost savings to more critical areas of your IT budget.
TickStream.Activity is a powerful tool that provides actionable data to better manage your business by reducing risk, lowering costs, and empowering productivity.
