“Raj Ananthanpillai, CEO of software company [IDentrix], says while 85 percent of employers check backgrounds before hiring, most do little, if anything, after the person is hired — leaving a “black hole” of potential issues that can arise later. He says traditional one-time background screening methods aren’t adequate to meet the insider threat environment that many retailers face today. Managers often make security and compliance decisions with background information that could be years, even decades, old.”

Gaining insight on insiders can insulate information

“‘Does your business harbor a Snowden, and would you know if it did?’ asks Raj Ananthanpillai, CEO at InfoZen, an identity-based screening solutions provider. … ‘Background checks are only one part of the employment litmus test,’ Ananthanpillai says. ‘Companies need to also monitor behavior and activity after a staffer is hired.’ … That’s the goal of IDentrix, a monthly service created by InfoZen that monitors and reports on the reputation (or risk level) of employees in sensitive positions. Ananthanpillai says IDentrix gathers information from sources such as the DMV, law enforcement and credit-reporting agencies.”

InfoZen Tackles Insider Threat With IDentrix Continuous, Post-Hire Personnel Screening

Homeland Security Today

“IDentrix provides an alternative to traditional background checks, which are very expensive, time consuming and typically take place every few years or even just once, during the hiring process. Ananthanpillai noted that these background checks often pick up on a potential threat too late. IDentrix offers continuous monitoring of risk factors from over 65 different publically-available identity attributes including criminal and court records, and relevant financial and professional data sources to keep the risk profile current. When IDentrix analytics identify patterns of risky behavior, automated alerts are sent to the organization.”

Beyond the Back Ground Check – IDentrix Offers a Path to Detect the Snowden in your Enterprise


“‘Does your business harbor a Snowden, and would you know if it did?’ Perhaps that is a question on a lot of Infosec
professionals’ minds, yet combating the insider threat is one of those thankless jobs that Infosec professionals are often ill equipped to handle. After all, employees, contractors and other staffers are usually vetted by HR departments, which rely on third party background checking services to validate the potential threat profile of that new staffer.'”

Avoiding Inside Jobs

HRO Today

“Don’t settle for a risk assessment model that isn’t working. The one-time, pre-hire background check aren’t built for today’s environment. Traditional checks leave managers with outdated information that does not equip them to monitor risk over time, leaving their companies vulnerable to threats like fraud, IP and profit loss, workplace violence, and more.
It’s time to take a proactive approach, continuously scan employee data to spot and thwart any nefarious activity before it’s too late.”
