Content collaboration tools provide an easy way for employees to use and share content both inside and outside the organizations. Since these tools can be used to collaborate with customers, partners and suppliers, they often provide rich security and privacy controls. Today, much of this functionality also can be found in other tools such as cloud office platforms, workstream collaboration platforms, content services platforms and content services applications. Functional differentiators in dedicated CCTs are difficult to identify.

Gartner defines insider risk management (IRM) as the tools and capabilities to measure, detect and contain undesirable behavior of trusted accounts within the organization. In response to a recognized need to minimize the effects of unwanted activity within the organization and key partners, security and risk management leaders have to mitigate risk. This market consists of tools and solutions to monitor the behavior of employees, service partners and key suppliers working inside the organization, and to evaluate whether behavior falls within expectations of role and corporate risk tolerance. Insider risk may involve errors, fraud, theft of confidential or commercially valuable information, or the sabotage of computer systems.
