Varonis offers a comprehensive and effective solution for data governance using a scalable and extensible metadata framework.
Unstructured data in organizations is exploding and out of control. It encompasses all distinct files—documents, images, spreadsheets, videos and audio files—stored on servers, NAS devices and in semi-structured repositories like SharePoint. Managing and protecting this data presents enormous challenges:
The Varonis® Data Governance Suite provides
On any given day, determining who has access to a folder isn't exactly easy, especially if groups on the folder's ACL contain one or more nested groups. Determining which folders a given group provides access to is downright difficult—without a program or script, an administrator has check every folder just to begin the investigation. Determining who should and should not have access to any given folder is simply impossible without automation.
More than 95% of file access activity is not audited by IT. Why? Because native Windows auditing is so resource intensive and difficult to decipher, it is rarely enabled. The result is that IT cannot answer fundamental questions like, "Who has been accessing my folder? Who deleted my data? What data has this person accessed?"
Most permissions and group membership changes are performed manually and are untested prior to execution. Cleaning up global access groups (everyone, domain users, authenticated users, etc.) is especially difficult. Without access auditing, IT needs to make a guess as to who accesses a data set, manually effect the changes, and hope they don't get a call from an end user that can no longer access data they require to do their job.
Organizational data owners should be making decisions about who gets access to their data and its proper use—not IT. Yet, 91% of organizations lack processes for determining who owns a given data set. Without a data owner that understands the sensitivity, importance, and organizational context, data cannot be managed and protected by the right people.
It is difficult to identify excessive permissions; remediating excessive permissions without disrupting organizational processes is even more difficult. As a result, access to data is rarely revoked. Excessive permissions and the lack of an audit trail leave data at risk for loss, theft, tampering and misuse—with no way to determine what happened after the fact.
