DTEX Systems Unveils New Capabilities to Understand Insider Risk Using Gen AI

New enhancements to DTEX InTERCEPT™ platform enable organizations to detect and monitor content employees upload to generative AI platforms

DTEX Systems, the global leader for insider risk management, today announced new insider risk management capabilities within the DTEX InTERCEPT™ platform that protect organizations from unintentional and intentional data loss through generative AI (GenAI) platforms like ChatGPT. With the new enhancements, companies can better understand what content employees are uploading to large language models (LLMs) and mitigate the risk of disclosing proprietary data or intellectual property (IP).

Companies and their employees are increasingly turning to GenAI platforms to drive positive business outcomes. According to recent research from Gartner, 55 percent of enterprises have either piloted generative AI solutions or put them into production. But the accelerated adoption of GenAI platforms introduces significant insider risk to organizations whose employees may not understand the security implications of uploading proprietary data or IP to public AI models.

According to the DTEX 2024 Insider Risk Investigations Report, 92% of organizations identified internal use of AI tools as a key security concern. The same report found that 90% of organizations would support tools that provide better oversight to mitigate GenAI-associated risks. When well-meaning employees upload sensitive data or IP to public LLMs, they increase the risk of data loss occurring. The increasing adoption of GenAI highlights the importance of proactive insider risk management to mitigate incidents before they occur.

The new capabilities within DTEX InTERCEPT™ allow the platform to inspect content uploaded to GenAI platforms for markers, including IP and other sensitive information, and prevent that data from being shared before it turns into an incident caused by a malicious or negligent insider. With web traffic inspection capabilities, DTEX InTERCEPT™ offers greater visibility into user activity while continuing to adhere to privacy standards. The platform provides centralized policy enforcement that enables security teams to curate secure access to thousands of GenAI applications, including differentiating between Microsoft CoPilot enterprise accounts and personal usage.

“There is growing attention and concern around how GenAI technology is being used within an organization, and for good reason. While well-intentioned employees are using this technology to create efficiencies and drive innovation, they are also increasing the risk of data leaks, data theft, and privacy violations. Malicious employees can intentionally upload sensitive data to GenAI technology to extract at a later time,” said Marshall Heilman, CEO at DTEX Systems. “The enhancements to DTEX InTERCEPT™ will allow companies to find the appropriate balance between achieving the transformational benefits delivered by GenAI and protecting their organization from threats to their data or IP.”

DTEX InTERCEPT™ is the only solution on the market that combines behavioral science, technology, intelligence, and services to provide organizations with unified and proactive protection from insider threats without invading personal privacy. Earlier this year, DTEX launched its AI3 Risk Assistant, a new feature of the InTERCEPT™ platform that processes natural language to provide quick and comprehensive insight into the nuances of insider risk and intent. This new feature further demonstrates how AI-powered innovation can be an impactful business enabler, with organizations now having the option to lean into these capabilities with proportional oversight to ensure that risk is minimized.
