Access Auditor

Access Auditor is great for evaluate your Governance Process and enhances that workflow before deployment. As we had to get the business up to speed afterword and that slowed us down.

Varonis Data Security Platform

For sure it is well suited for companies that need to keep track of their data and that are willing to pay for it. It does an excelent job of monitoring the file's access, with zero impact on Storage's performance. Sometimes it is not enough to be able to restore the data. Sometimes in critical incidents, managers and heads demand to know who caused it. Thanks to Varonis we were able to give them this information easily and in a short time.

  • Improve audit filters.
  • Be licensed for all use only and not separate, as here our e-mail is not auditable by [Varonis Data Security Platform] for lack of license.
  • Improve web dashboard interface to one that is more intuitive.

I wish the cost was a little bit lower and increase functionality and features would give it 10/10.

It is hard to pick just one. Access Auditor has dramatically improved our processes and saved us a ton of time. Also, their support is top-notch.

Support has always been very responsive and addressed any issues we may have had in the past. Some local engineers are willing to come onsite or work over a web session to discuss creating a new rule set or look at some issues. Getting issues address has never been a problem. There was one feature we had trouble getting to function correctly, but support and local engineers were willing to work with us as much as needed to get it working correctly for our organization.

Alternatives Considered

Access Auditor

Even if you only use their Auditing/Access Certification tool and not their Identity Management/Password Management tools, you're still able to complete entitlement reviews for SOX or any other compliance requirements.

Varonis Data Security Platform

Actually, we didn't expend much time evaluating other file auditing platforms. We chose Varonis just after a serious incident and we had already heard about Varonis at a Netapp event. So it was an easy choice. We called Varonis and asked them for a PoC, that's it. The PoC became a production and it is running until this day.

Varonis Data Security Platform

  • The positive ROI has been in time spent now vs. pre Varonis tracking down permissions and access to folders in a share environment
  • The built in policy rules were very helpful after learning how to properly apply them
  • Quick snapshot into our sensitive data repositories has been a major win for our Security team
