Varonis Data Security Platform Listed in Gartner 2017 Market Guide for Data-Centric Audit and Protection

In 2005, our founders had a vision to build a solution focused on protecting the data organizations have the most of and yet know the least about – files and emails.  Executing on this vision, Varonis has built an innovative Data Security Platform (DSP) to protect enterprise data against insider threats, data breaches and cyberattacks.

To this end, we are pleased to be listed as a representative vendor in Gartner’s 2017 Market Guide for Data-Centric Audit and Protection (DCAP) for the capabilities found within our DSP.

According to Gartner, “By 2020, data-centric audit and protection products will replace disparate siloed data security tools in 40% of large enterprises, up from less than 5% today.”

“Traditional data security approaches are limited because the manner in which products address policy is siloed, and thus the organizational data security policies themselves are siloed,” Gartner said in the guide. “The challenge facing organizations today is that data is pervasive and does not stay in a single silo on-premises, but is compounded by the use of cloud SaaS or IaaS. There is a critical need to establish organization wide data security policies and controls based upon Data Security Governance (DSG).”

Gartner recommends that organizations “implement a DCAP strategy, and ‘shortlist’ products that orchestrate data security controls consistently across all silos that store the sensitive data.” Further, the report advises, “A vendor’s ability to integrate these capabilities across multiple silos will vary between products and also in comparison with vendors in each market subsegment. Below is a summary of some key features to investigate:”

  • Data classification and discovery
  • Data security policy management
  • Monitoring user privileges and data access activity
  • Auditing and reporting
  • Behavior analysis, alerting and blocking
  • Data protection

The Varonis DSP protects enterprise data by analyzing content, accessibility of data and the behavior of the people and machines that access data to alert on misbehavior, enforce a least privilege model and automate data management functions.

Explore the use cases and benefits of a DSP today.
