Frequently Asked Questions
How Veriato 360 and Veriato Recon work together?
The two solutions are designed to work together seamlessly. Operating from one console, you can deploy both User Behavior Analytics via Veriato Recon and User Activity Monitoring via Veriato 360.
This tight integration enables a proper coverage model – insuring lower risk employees behavior is baselined and analyzed, while higher risk employees activity is more closely monitored.
In addition, when Veriato Recon detects a meaningful anomaly in behavior, it’s a simple process to engage the power of Veriato 360 to quickly review the underlying user activity data – so you get the intelligence you need to act quickly and appropriately.
I own Veriato 360. Do I get the user behavior analytics functionality?
No. User behavior analytics is a function of Veriato Recon, and requires a Recon license.
How do I view the underlying activity data in Veriato Recon?
Veriato Recon logs the data it collects so it is available if you need it. Accessing the underlying activity data requires a Veriato 360 license. For many organizations, Veriato Recon stand-alone meets their goals. Organizations that recognize the benefits of combining User Behavior Analytics with User Activity Monitoring frequently purchase “floating” Veriato 360 licenses along with Veriato Recon. These floating licenses can be moved throughout the organization, so when the need arises to view the underlying data it is a quick and easy process to do so.
What is the difference between using an endpoint license rather than a floating license to unlock the data recorded by Recon?
If an endpoint license is used to unlock the recon recorded data, then this license cannot be used again on a different computer; it can only be used on the same computer. If a floating license is used to unlock the recon recorded data, once that machine is set back to recon mode, then the floating license can be used again on a different computer.
How long does Veriato Recon store the user activity data it logs?
The data can be stored for up to 30 days. On the 31st day data is logged, the first day’s activity log rolls off. The 30-day temporary retention period supports the best practice of reviewing the online activity of departing employees for the 30 days prior to notice of resignation, or prior to termination.
Does Veriato Recon take a user's behavior across multiple computers into consideration?
Yes, when a user uses more than one computer, transactional / metadata is shipped to the central database so that their behavior across each computer they use can be combined to generate an appropriate baseline of their behavior.
How does Veriato Recon’s baselining account for vacations, days off, or other similar schedule changes?
The solution has intelligence built in that allows it to, with no manual configuration, accommodate for users who log in for a full workday, partial workday or don't log in at all.
