Why we’re here

Our co-founders, Yaki Faitelson and Ohad Korkus, were working for NetApp on a project for a client in Angola, on the western coast of Africa. The client commissioned hi-resolution digital photos of the ocean floor at great expense, and stored them on their NetApp filers. And one day, they were gone. The likely questions followed: who did it? how did it happen? who had access to them? was it a competitor? was it an accident? a hacker? an insider? Nobody knew. And so Varonis was born to give companies more visibility and protection for their high value information.

One-of-a-kind technology

Our platform collects, stores and analyzes metadata non-intrusively, in real-time, on the major platforms that store unstructured data. It was architected from the ground up by a team of technologists with deep domain expertise and the hunger to tackle massive problems.
