Optical Character Recognition (OCR)

Session Mining with OCR

Teramind’s advanced OCR feature allows you to discover onscreen PII, PHI, PFI and other sensitive information in real-time. The OCR engine continuously captures, indexes and analyses a user’s desktop using machine learning and sophisticated pattern recognition algorithms. With OCR, you can quickly search for textual information even inside images or videos, build powerful content-rules or conduct forensic investigation easily.

Some use cases of Teramind’s OCR and fingerprinting features are:

  • Alert when a user sees a full credit card number on the screen violating the PCI DSS compliance requirements.
  • Find out how often a user saw certain sensitive record and recall desktop videos & screenshots of those occurrences for investigation purposes.
  • Create rules for applications that are not easily parseable because the text is inside images or videos.
  • Automatically take action when certain text appears on the screen, such as black out that part of the screen in the recordings, shutdown the application, notifying or lock out the user etc.
  • Prevent embargoed data exposure such as M&A announcement, stop insider trading or sophisticated steganographic data theft.
  • Monitor the activity of third-party vendors, contractors and other external users on a Terminal Server without needing to install an Agent.
