With minimal Identity and Access Management staff, this tool has been a blessing for quick responses to questions like:

'Who has access?' 'What are the permissions on a specific shared drive folder?' 'When was the last time a folder was modified and by who?' 'Where are all the locations that contain sensitive data such as SOX systems?'

Varonis Data Security Platform is excellent for organizations of different sizes and if properly configured and tuned, allows security specialists to be aware of file activity and active directory statistics within their organization.

Very well suited for organizations the require complete monitoring of environment. If categorization and identification of data is needed, this product is best in class in my opinion. If budgets are not in place, now or in the future, this product may not be the best one to choose.

  1. We use Varonis on a daily basis to provide access reports to high profile data. One example is the business office report that we send to our SBO and also we use it to monitor critical Card Holder servers to match up with our Change Control documents to see which files were changes, modified, deleted, or created.
  2. We also use it to get some great informational reports like stale data reports, big data reports, exe, mp3, mov files, broken SIDs, etc.
  3. We use it for DCF (Data Classification Framework) to scan our servers for sensitive data and to stay compliant with our audits.
  4. We also use it to identify Data Owners. Varonis makes it super simple to identify these owners and then we can email them entitlement reports confirming access and they can request to change it or you can even automate it with a product like Data privilege. One important thing that most people miss is when people transfer to different departments, sometimes these people have more permissions than they need and these type of reports being sent quarterly are to help remove unneeded access.
  5. DatAlert - We use it for instant alerting (DatAlert for high priority AD alerts, exchange alerts and now Analytic alerts).
    1. The new analytics and behavior alerts are a big addition to the product. You can now see:
      1. Mass files being encrypted (Ransomware) & Behavior Patterns of Ransomware
      2. AD Permissions, OU Changes, locked accounts, etc.
      3. Detects deletion of multiple directory service objects
      4. Detects exploitation software created or modified
      5. Detects if a brute force attack is happening locking out multiple AD accounts
      6. Detects if the host file was changed
      7. Detects if system binaries are found in unusual locations
      8. Detects if Crypto tools are installed and being used
      9. Detects if Group Policy Objects have been modified and by whom
      10. This is just a few of what their product does now!

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.
