Why Rakuten Uses Exabeam and Incydr™ Instead of Traditional DLP


By designing a data security program with Exabeam and Incydr™ at the core instead of a traditional DLP, Rakuten can identify and address the riskiest data activity – not just activity they know to watch for. This recorded conversation between experts from Rakuten, Exabeam and Code42 discusses the critical workflows Rakuten has built to protect data.


This webinar will discuss:

  • Why Rakuten went with Exabeam + Incydr instead of a traditional DLP
  • How the rise of remote work accelerated Rakuten’s efforts to address Insider Risks
  • How Rakuten leverages Code42 risk detection lenses for departing employees, high risk users, and also new employees bringing in data from other employers
