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.

Varonis Data Security Platform

  • The reports can take some time to get used to creating and running. It can take some trial and error to determine the correct rule sets to get the information you need. The information is there. It may just take some time to set it up correctly. Once you find the right settings, you can save it for use later.
  • It does have a lot of different tie-in to other products, which can take some time to set up correctly. It would be good if that could be simplified.

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

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.

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.

  • 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
