Aware by Wiretap: Gain Visibility, Maintain Compliance and Protect Company Culture

by Jeff Schumann

What’s in a name? Everything.

When we launched Wiretap earlier this year, we found that our name resonated and intrigued, while generating a curiosity that continues to differentiate what we do: extending traditional governance and compliance technologies by providing human-centric insight to enhance employee engagement and reduce the risk of unsafe behavior on enterprise collaboration tools.

As we build a solid foundation for customer and partner growth, we are thrilled to announce the next step in our evolution by formally naming our platform: Aware by Wiretap. The innovative and intuitive Aware platform monitors employee interaction through a behavioral lens, creating a more risk-aware environment and protecting company culture.

Aware is a natural extension and reflection of our brand, capabilities, innovation and competitive differentiators. As more enterprise organizations adopt and deploy employee collaboration tools like Microsoft’s Yammer and Teams, or Workplace by Facebook, it becomes increasingly important to identify and manage the human risk factor in order to create a dynamic and more productive work environment.  

Aware by Wiretap delivers exceptional visibility, makes compliance easy and protects company culture, empowering our customers to collaborate with unprecedented confidence. The Aware platform delivers unprecedented insight and knowledge into employee sentiment and potentially harmful or inappropriate communication, enforces IT and HR policies in near real-time, and helps our customers maximize the utility and ROI of their enterprise collaboration investment.

As we turn the page on a new year, we couldn’t be more proud of our 2017 successes and remain bullish about our vibrant future. We continue to lay the groundwork for exciting changes down the road in 2018 and beyond. Thanks for sharing in our journey along the way!
