Attachmate Tackles Insider Fraud With Luminet

Luminet captures user activity across the enterprise, helping organizations to protect sensitive data, reduce internal fraud and enable regulatory compliance, according to Attachmate.

Attachmate Corporation announced the availability of Attachmate Luminet, an enterprise fraud management solution for application monitoring.

Luminet reveals user activity within enterprise applications and transforms the data into actionable intelligence, allowing organizations to protect the privacy of mission-critical data, reduce internal fraud and enable regulatory compliance, Attachmate said.

With Luminet, fraud analysts and compliance auditors can see all user activity in real time, record and visually play-back application screens and analyze suspicious patterns within a full-featured case management system. Insider fraud and failed audits caused by employees abusing privileges and access to confidential information continues to be a growing challenge for many industries including financial services, government and health care. These abuses result in lost business, damaged reputations and financial losses totaling billions of dollars, the vendor pointed out. “Global fraud costs are likely to total more than $300 billion over the next year, making an investment in enterprise fraud management (EFM) technology a worthwhile strategy for many enterprises,” said Avivah Litan, VP and distinguished analyst, Gartner.

“Until now, most enterprises using fraud detection technology have been limited by siloed solutions and as a result are faced with a fragmented approach to fraud prevention. A key driver in the emergence of a new generation of EFM solutions is the need to address fraud across multiple channels within the enterprise.” While most organizations have invested in robust security technologies to protect themselves from external attacks, many still struggle to address more challenging threats from within. As insider fraud becomes increasingly sophisticated and industry and government regulations more demanding, organizations need help protecting sensitive data and identifying actionable evidence of employee abuse when an internal fraud incident occurs. “Most insider fraud goes undetected within the enterprise for more than a year, after which uncompromised evidence is difficult to secure and taking decisive action is nearly impossible,” said Michael Miller, director of business development and strategy for Attachmate.

“Luminet captures employee activity as well as the data needed to prevent fraud and demonstrate regulatory compliance, by assembling a complete history of user activity across enterprise applications - from the mainframe to the Web.”
