An Intellyx Brain Candy Brief

An essential part of the digital transformation story is the reorientation of the enterprise for speed and agility. And organizational speed and agility demand that the modern enterprise embrace new ways of internal communication and collaboration. This need had led most organizations to adopt the latest generation of collaboration platforms such as Yammer, Slack, and Facebook Workplace.

The promise of rapid and free-flowing collaboration these new platforms offer, however, also opens the door to less desirable activities such as non-compliant information releases, harassment, and increased security risks. These challenges are particularly acute in heavily regulated industries — leading many organizations to merely choose not to adopt these now-vital tools rather than absorb the risk they engender.

Wiretap believes that it can help enterprises get the best of both worlds. The company, founded by an enterprise executive frustrated with these challenges, helps organizations leverage these new collaboration tools while providing visibility, maintaining compliance and protecting vital corporate interests.

The company’s platform enables organizations to monitor conversations occurring on all major collaboration platforms in near-real-time to identify any interaction or activity which the organization deems to be at-risk. The platform also uses AI to help identify at-risk data and to perform behavioral analysis — which is essential in determining at-risk activities that simple keyword-trapping approaches would not. Overall, the company believes that unleashing collaboration is critical to the modern enterprise, but it believes it can help them do so in a way that ensures compliance and reduces the risk of doing so.
