Export encrypted evidence for forensic investigation
Ekran System provides a secure method for exporting encrypted data of fully monitored sessions or their fragments for investigation purposes. Exported data includes:
When you export encrypted data, you receive a .efe file that Ekran System signs with a server-specific e-key, transforming it into a protected format. The format of this file guarantees the integrity and authenticity of exported monitored data, which means you can validate it at any time and use it for further investigation and forensic activities.

What our clients say about Ekran System’s insider threat prevention tools
Dennis Fox II
CEO | President at ES Consulting
“What we like the most about the Ekran is how easy it was to get started. The communication with the team is both smooth and efficient. Also, the support received from Ekran System team, both informational and technical, has always been very prompt and helpful.”
Technical Director at National IT Solutions
“We tried quite a few insider threat management solutions before we came to Ekran System. The key factor that led me to Ekran was fast communication from sales to support. I’d highly recommend Ekran System to most colleagues. Within 30 to 40 minutes I had it up and running and it was recording. I was quite impressed by how quick and easy it was. I definitely recommend Ekran System!”
Director of Support and Security at PECB
“We have a lot of data to protect. We are also very happy to have an ever-growing number of new customers whose data are processed only by authorized processes and employees. To keep everything in check, we must be able to identify potential internal or external threats in time and act accordingly to prevent any intentional or unintentional errors.”
Senior Program Manager at Microsoft
“Ekran System provides a great solution for customers that need a session recording and activity audits, as well as incident response functionality to detect and prevent insider threats.”
CTO of CNC Ltd
“As a Managed Service Provider we are responsible for our customers’ servers but aren’t the only ones with access and often well intentioned 3rd parties cause disruption with unauthorised changes. Ekran gives us peace of mind that all actions carried out on the server are recorded and we can quickly identify & rectify issues. It’s like having CCTV for your server and in these times of a need for heightened security and auditing this is perfect for the job.”
Cyber attackers are constantly looking for new ways to gain access to sensitive information. By monitoring user activity and leveraging the user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) module in Ekran System [PDF], you can detect potential security threats before they become security incidents and can prevent data breaches and other risks.
In addition, organizations in many industries including healthcare, finance, and insurance are subject to strict regulatory requirements. Failure to comply with those requirements can result in fines and reputational damage for organizations. By monitoring user activity, you can take the steps necessary to protect sensitive information and comply with IT requirements.
Monitoring for suspicious user activity can also help you to identify insider threats, such as employees who intentionally or unintentionally mishandle sensitive data. Using Ekran System, you can quickly respond to suspicious user activity and prevent damage to your organization.
Choosing the right software for suspicious activity reporting is essential to protect your business from security threats and comply with regulatory requirements. Here are some factors to consider when selecting what product to use:
Scalability: Look for a dedicated solution that can scale with your business so you can monitor and report on suspicious activity across all your systems and devices as your company grows.
Real-time monitoring: Choose software that provides real-time monitoring of user activity so you can quickly identify and respond to potential threats.
User and entity behavior analytics (UEBA): Consider software that uses AI to identify deviations from baseline behavior and notifies security officers about suspicious actions.
Ekran System is insider threat management software that satisfies all these criteria and allows for efficient user activity reporting. Ensure that your security and IT compliance audits are as informative and insightful as possible with Ekran System’s user activity monitoring, internal audit trail, huge selection of reports, and integration with Microsoft Power BI.
Here are two major strategies that can help you to identify suspicious behavior and respond before it results in damage to your organization.
- Monitor for anomalies or deviations from normal patterns of behavior. If a user suddenly begins accessing files or systems outside of their normal work hours or geographic location, this could be a sign of unauthorized activity. Similarly, if a user accesses large amounts of data or attempts to transfer files to external devices without a valid reason, this could be a sign of malicious activity.
- Monitor for behavior that is inconsistent with the user’s job duties or level of access. If an employee attempts to access systems or data not consistent with their role in your organization, this can be a sign of malicious intent. Consider keeping an eye out for cases when users with basic access permissions attempt to access protected confidential data or make changes to system settings beyond their level of access.
Identifying suspicious user behavior requires a combination of technical tools and cybersecurity awareness. By using Ekran System to monitor user activity within your network and leveraging its user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) module [PDF], you can instantly notice malicious activity and act quickly to prevent an incident from occurring or to remediate the consequences.
