A manufacturing employee has 188 uploads totaling 48.7 GBs in 1 day to Ryu Share. The data is sent to a Drop Zone outside of the company's jurisdictional location.
This use case requires some attention to detail. For a company that authorizes the use of Ryu Share, an employee sending out 48GBs may not be entirely suspicious, as it could be a large file. However in this instance the average employee sends only a few megabytes a day, making 48.7GBs a noteworthy outlier.
In this case it was due to an employee who had gone rogue, but this behavior could have also been linked to an innocent mistake, an account comprised, or indication that a machine has been infected.
