How Code42 Solves for Insider Risk

Files + Vectors + Users = Insider Risk

Code42 allows you to detect and respond to data risk caused by those inside your organization. This includes exposure and exfiltration activities on computers and via corporate cloud and email services.

The foundation of Code42’s ability to speed insider risk detection and response comes from monitoring all file activity regardless of what is considered acceptable or unacceptable by security policy. Code42 logs every file event and enriches it with context on the vector, file and user to determine what represents real risk. This allows Code42 to not only reduce alerts and investigation time, but also remediate risk that goes unnoticed by traditional data security technologies.



  • Monitors all files - not just those that have been deemed sensitive 
  • Offers critical metadata including file name, owner, size, path, category and hash
  • Provides authorized security analysts with the ability to review the file’s actual content


  • Detects exposure and exfiltration including web browser uploads, cloud sync activity, file sharing, and use of removable media  
  • Offers vector detail such as domain name, active browser tab title and URL, and removable media make, model, volume name, partition ID and serial number
  • Filters file events to reflect what is considered trusted vs untrusted activity


  • Identifies behavioral risk indicators such as remote activity, off-hour file events and attempts to conceal exfiltration
  • Allows security teams to programmatically monitor users with increased risk factors, such as departing and contract employees 
  • Provides 90 days of historical user activity to surface trends and abnormalities

Code42 integrates with top technologies to help correlate data risks, deliver actionable insights and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of customer workflows.

Using Code42 to protect data from insider threat

Frequently Asked Questions

Does Code42 use an endpoint agent?

Yes, Code42 uses a non-disruptive agent installed on Windows, Mac and Linux devices to monitor file activity as well as collect files and file metadata. Maximum CPU allowances can be set for when users are present and away from their devices. The agent can be hidden from users.

How do you identify when important files are put at risk?

Customizable alerts can be set for near real-time notification of risky activity. Code42 also assigns categories to files in order to help you identify your most important data at a glance. Monitored categories include archive, audio, document, executable, image, PDF, presentation, script, source code, spreadsheet, video and virtual disk image. When you're alerted of risk, you can quickly access the file(s) in question to make an informed decision about whether that file needs to remain private. Finally, most organizations further narrow their focus by prioritizing alerting during times where data is put at the most risk, such as during employee departure and M&A.
