MHR’s iTrent Shield, AI-Driven HR and Payroll Security Solution

MHR International is an HR tech, payroll, and analytics business. MHR has launched an AI-based iTrent Shield a new security solution that protects sensitive HR & payroll data. iTrent Shield is a cloud-based, single database, integrated HR & payroll solution, that supports all aspects of HR management, recruitment, and talent management.

It uses an AI-based user behaviour analytics algorithm to identify and alert user accounts that may have been compromised by hackers or trusted-staff attempting fraudulent actions. This allows corporates to quickly detect and stop suspicious actions before it results in sensitive data being leaked out or employee salary payments are diverted.

Will North, Chief Information Security Officer at MHR, says: “The application of AI to detect unusual behaviour to protect HR and payroll data has never been done before. With attacks on HR and payroll systems increasing as cyber-criminals start to realize the treasure trove of sensitive personal and financial data they store; the most advanced security available must be used to protect these systems.”

iTrent Shield works by monitoring all user actions in real-time and learning what ‘normal’ behaviour looks like for each user, such as the IP addresses they connect from, the reports they run, and how often they access sensitive data. When a user’s behaviour deviates from their normal pattern, such as if their account had been compromised or they were undertaking fraudulent actions just before finishing work, the organization is notified so that instant action can be taken.

North adds: “Although malicious intent is far more likely from external actors, employees can cause far greater damage due to the unfettered access they have. This risk should therefore be taken very seriously.”

iTrent Shield can lessen the risk of financial, reputational, and operational damage that an organization could face as a result of a breach of its HR or payroll system. It is a progressive security solution in the HR industry and will set the pace for how HR and payroll data are protected in the future.
