Chose Varonis Data Security Platform
Varonis does a much better job presenting the entire picture. It can show an account being used, then elevated and then what actions were done with that account on a file system. ADaudit didn't have all of this information available with the modules we tested.

Cyberark
The system is great for enterprise or larger IT departments or teams where temporary or full access may be given using privileged IDs. Requirements for needing local admin access is also eliminated which can help with specific Windows workstation related tasks. It can be very useful when working with remote teams or contractors who may need temporary access to a system when required.

Varonis
The most highlighted feature of Varonis Data Security Platform is the data analyzing mechanism. It analyzes your data all the time with some special algorithms to detect any unusual activities so that it can identify any unusual behavior or users and
take necessary action to save your sensitive data. They also offer a complete dashboard solution for their customers to control across different data stores, see their current state, and any security breaches to be addressed manually.

Pros
Cyberark
  • Automatically discover new servers on the network and take control of the local admin password by vaulting it and ensuring nobody knows the password. A different password on every server.
  • Automatically roll the password in a configurable manner - after each use, after a certain period of time, etc.
  • Track and govern sensitive account usage by ensuring only properly authorized users can access the vault and obtain the credentials and then monitor usage.

Varonis
  • Varonis logging is very robust and captures all audit events being sent from the file servers.
  • The ability to report and alert on Active Directory account events works very well with file activity monitoring. It can show the complete picture of what an account did while being used.
  • Have a customizable dashboard is great for being able to show upper management information that only pertains to them.

Cons
Cyberark
  • GUI - right now everything is on one page/dashboard. Some level of folder/Safe type view would be great
  • More options when storing passwords - especially for network based passwords
  • Better integrations with vendors like Cisco so that admins dont need to really get the password from the vault (think Last Pass type add on)

  • Implementation can be challenging in some areas and can only be executed by the vendor
  • Implementation can only be executed by the vendor and additional work can be chargeable
  • Licensing can be improved upon
  • Agent based so implementation can be longer than expected

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

Support Rating
Cyberark
Customer support and technical support have always been great when we require assistance. Especially when we come across issues that we're not familiar with.

Varonis
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.

It is known as one of the safest products in the market. It has good support and is also available as on-premise. You can run it virtually on VMWare (and probably on other hypervisors as well). You can have a second instance on bare metal and that makes it a very safe system.

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.

  • We have identified data classifications issues that our organization was not aware of prior to the implementation.
  • The tool does take a dedicated resource for it to be effective.
  • Varonis has improved the speed with which we can fulfill audit requests, leaving us more time for other tasks.
