Protecting Your Business from Internal Threats with Image Analyzer

In today's digital age, protecting sensitive information within an organization is paramount. With the rise of remote work and digital collaboration tools, the risk of internal threats has significantly increased. 

Disgruntled employees, bad actors, and internal threats pose a substantial risk to company security. One innovative solution to this challenge is Visual Threat Intelligence technology from Image Analyzer. 

This advanced technology can identify screengrabs of product plans, sensitive company information, and schematics, offering a robust line of defence against internal threats.

Understanding the Risk

Internal threats can come from various sources within an organization:

  1. Disgruntled Employees: Employees who feel wronged or unappreciated may resort to leaking sensitive information as a form of retaliation.
  2. Bad Actors: Individuals who exploit their access to company data for personal gain or to harm the company.
  3. Unintentional Threats: Sometimes, employees accidentally share sensitive information, leading to unintended data breaches.

These threats can lead to severe consequences, including financial losses, damage to the company’s reputation, and loss of intellectual property. Traditional security measures often focus on external threats, leaving a significant gap in internal threat management.

The Role of Visual Threat Intelligence

Visual Threat Intelligence technology from Image Analyzer is a game-changer in this context. By leveraging advanced image recognition and artificial intelligence, this technology can identify screengrabs containing sensitive information. Here’s how it works:

  1. Detection: The technology scans images and screengrabs shared within the company’s network or uploaded to the cloud. It can identify specific types of content, such as product plans, sensitive documents, and schematics.
  2. Analysis: Once an image is detected, it undergoes thorough analysis to determine its sensitivity. The system uses sophisticated algorithms to assess the content and classify it based on predefined criteria.
  3. Alerting: If sensitive information is detected, the system immediately alerts the relevant security personnel. This enables a rapid response to potential threats, minimising the risk of data leakage.

Benefits of Visual Threat Intelligence

Implementing Visual Threat Intelligence technology provides several key benefits:

  1. Proactive Threat Management: Instead of reacting to data breaches after they occur, this technology allows for proactive identification and mitigation of potential threats.
  2. Enhanced Security: By focusing on visual data, the technology addresses a critical gap in traditional security measures, which often overlook image-based information.
  3. Real-Time Monitoring: Continuous monitoring ensures that any suspicious activity is detected and addressed promptly.
  4. Compliance: For industries with stringent data protection regulations, such as healthcare and finance, this technology helps maintain compliance by ensuring sensitive information is not inadvertently shared or exposed.

Protecting Against Disgruntled Employees and Bad Actors

Disgruntled employees and bad actors often rely on the ease of capturing and sharing screenshots to leak sensitive information. 

Visual Threat Intelligence technology disrupts this by:

  1. Tracking and Monitoring: Any attempt to share or upload sensitive images is logged and monitored. This creates a deterrent effect, reducing the likelihood of intentional data leaks.
  2. Immediate Response: Alerts enable security teams to act swiftly, preventing the spread of sensitive information.
  3. Investigative Support: Detailed logs and alerts provide valuable data for internal investigations, helping to identify the source of the threat and take appropriate action.


In an era where digital information is paramount, protecting sensitive data from internal threats is more critical than ever. Visual Threat Intelligence technology from Image Analyzer offers a cutting-edge solution to this challenge. Embracing this technology not only enhances security but also fosters a culture of vigilance and responsibility within the organization, ensuring that your most valuable assets remain protected. 

Image Analyzer is available as licensable technology on an OEM basis to all IT Security vendors of advanced DLP solutions.
