Overall Satisfaction with Varonis Data Security Platform

We are currently in our 1st year of deployment and are utilizing it across our entire organization. We mainly purchased the product for tracking account activity in active directory, but have found the added malware threat detection and notifications when group policies are changed have been added benefits for our Security and Identify and Access Management teams.
  • Searching for account permissions is much easier and granular with Varonis over normal AD users and computers
  • Having alerting when group policies are changed has been a big security group win
  • Identifying sensitive data such as PII and SOX data has also been a major win for our Organization
  • Implementation could have been a little smoother with more help from the Varonis sales team, but we managed
  • Tying it into some 3rd party systems could be more intuitive
  • Navigating the built in rules and patterns was a little clunky, but we worked through them
  • 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
We briefly evaluated Stealthbits, but found it was not a major Enterprise grade product

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?'
