HaystackID has upgraded its flagship eDiscovery and remote review platform. The company’s portfolio is designed to help other organizations improve their security postures, and does so by auditing their current capabilities before providing them with the tools they need to shore up the gaps and protect their infrastructure.
The 3.0 security enhancements will give customers more customization options, and offers additional security layers to guard against malware and to prevent unauthorized users from gaining access to a system. The strongest package offers biometric identity verification through a webcam, and supplements that with tracking software that can assess a user’s level of focus during a session. It can also detect the presence of cameras and other unauthorized devices.
All three of HaystackID’s packages will allow customers to comply with the latest data protection regulations. The company indicated that its third technology generation will encourage security optimization, after previous generations focused on the adaptation of secure communications infrastructure and their integration with existing security processes.
“Increased cyber threats and exponential growth in remote work due to the pandemic have driven the need for even greater protection,” said HaystackID SVP and Review Services GM Matt Daimler. “Our 3.0 platform is the next step in that evolution using cutting-edge, next-generation technology.”
“Every matter has different policy and security needs, and we are adapting our technology accordingly,” added HaystackID CISO and Forensics President John Wilson. “For those organizations needing the most secure technology out there, 3.0 provides them with that extra protection ensuring that only the authorized user can access their data.”
HaystackID is not the first company to warn about the rising number of cyberattacks during the COVID-19 pandemic. NuData security has called attention to some of the common COVID-19 scams, while the US Federal Trade Commission has reported $210 million in COVID-related fraud losses in 2020.
