iON's works with Varonis to help organizations manage and protect their unstructured and semi structured data—the documents, spreadsheets, presentations, media files and other business data in file servers, NAS devices, SharePoint and Exchange. These critical data assets are massive and growing rapidly. According to industry analysts:

  • 80% of organizational data is unstructured
  • Unstructured data will grow by 650% in the next five years

A single terabyte of data usually contains about 50,000 folders; many are likely to contain files that are considered sensitive. Data classification technology promises to help find sensitive files, but finding them is just the beginning. Then, the really difficult challenges arise:

  • Who has access to them?
  • Who should and shouldn't have access to them?
  • Who uses them?
  • Who abuses their access?
  • Who owns them?
  • Which are sensitive and exposed to risk?

iON addresses these challenges with Varonis by providing visibility into the content of data across file systems and SharePoint sites.

Data protection is necessary to safeguard an organization's customers, employees, business partners, and investors. It is fundamental in securing an organization's intellectual property and competitive edge, and for maintaining the organizational trust required for it to properly function. Ongoing, scalable data protection and management require technology designed to handle an ever-increasing volume and complexity—a metadata framework.

The Varonis Metadata Framework non-intrusively collects this critical metadata, generates metadata where existing metadata is lacking (e.g. its file system filters and content inspection technologies), pre-processes it, normalizes it, analyzes it, stores it, and presents it to IT administrators in an interactive, dynamic interface. Once data owners are identified, they are empowered to make informed authorization and permissions maintenance decisions through a configurable web-based interface—that are then executed—with no IT overhead or manual backend processes.

 

SOLUTION FOR DATA CLASSIFICATION:

  • Ensure the right people have access to sensitive data
  • Ensure use of data is monitored
  • Context around the content
  • True incremental file classification
  • Regulatory compliance, including PCI and HIPAA
