Likelihood to Recommend

SolarWinds Access Rights Manager

Best suited: It is best suited for companies who don't want to worry too much about access rights. The initial workload may be huge, based on the current rights situation in your company, but after setting everything up the time to change or review permissions has dropped drastically. Not suited: If you want to specify permissions on a Folder and have them overwritten each time someone makes a change, ARM is not the product for you.

Varonis Data Security Platform

Data Governance is well suited to areas where there is a requirement to control user access and privileges to unorganised data, if an organisation is taking on the challenge of a data classification project then this is a great tool for finding out what data is out in the organisation. Some additional modules allow information owners and approvers to authorise user access through a web portal cutting down on a manual process and lets profile administration be auditable.

  • The web interface is somewhat limited in terms of functionality
  • More licenses are required for additional features. This increases the cost to implement.
  • Customized reporting is lacking.

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

At the time of our purchase Stealth Bits did not have the same functionality that we initially wanted, so Varonis was the better option and across the available modules again Varonis could cover more future use areas. As of now Stealth Bits has really caught up and as they do not operate an agent logic of data capture can be a lot easier and quicker to install.
