How Altitude Networks Helps 

We automatically perform file sensitivity classification and identity mapping to uncover external backdoor access from employee personal accounts to identify risks. We surface sensitive files at risk based on sharing permissions, relationships, and behavior patterns and allow you to remediate them directly from our dashboard. The Altitude Networks Risk engine doesn’t just categorize the risks, but also shows you where to prioritize your resolution efforts by analyzing the metadata of every file in your environment and the activity related to them from any user (employees or external accounts) any time.
