Unstructured Data Solutions: Employees find and get access to what they need faster and more easily. Only the right people have access to the right data, all use is monitored, and abuse is flagged. Manual processes are automated and more effective. Data is stored in the right places and archived or deleted when it’s not needed.
Varonis creates software solutions for what we call human generated data — all the documents, spreadsheets, presentations, emails, and other files that employees create and share every day as part of every business process. This is typically an organization‘s fastest growing data set, and contains some of its most important, sensitive information, from financial records, to medical records, to intellectual property.
A few things have happened over the past 15-20 years with so much data growth.
The first thing is that employees have a harder time finding what they need, getting access to it quickly, and they can‘t always get to it from the right devices. This means they‘re not as productive as they should be.
The second thing is that data is far more at risk than it should be, and the consequences of a breach are getting more severe — we hear about breaches every day now. Most of these breaches happen because people have access to more data than they need and nothing is monitoring what they‘re doing.
The third thing is that organizations are spending a lot of money storing stale data they don‘t need and managing it with costly, inefficient manual processes.
Delegate data access controls to Data Owners, and use automation to approve/deny access. Remove your IT HelpDesk from the data provisioning cycle.
Enforce auditing and control on your Active Directory services. Ensure all changes are audited to specific individuals, and changes to Group Policies (GPO) are tracked and audited
Receive real-time alerts for Insider Threats, Ransomeware attacks and other suspicious activity. Forward those alerts to your SIEM, or alert SecOps in real time
