Varonis® software ensures that the right users have access to the data they need to conduct business. Overly permissive access – and the associated risks – are significantly reduced. The return on investment is enormous considering what breaches cost companies in customer loyalty, business continuity and brand. There are also very tangible operational cost savings to be realized by making daily IT tasks significantly more efficient.
The challenge is rooted in technology: file systems and directory services, such as Microsoft Active Directory and LDAP, do not function as a single business system. The result is that over time, users inherit more and more access to data, while IT administrators and data owners cannot answer even basic questions such as: Who has access permissions to the data, who is accessing data, and who should have their access revoked?
