Why Varonis?

Defining permissions and managing access to data has traditionally been the responsibility of IT. This is inherently broken since it places the burden for rightful access to a company’s most critical assets on people who have no context for the data, its value, and what constitutes rightful use.

DataPrivilege gives business users the ability to easily review, grant, and revoke access through an easy-to-use web application. Save time, reduce IT burden, and make measurably better access control decisions.

What our customers are saying

“Every one, right up to the CEO, is performing entitlement reviews using DataPrivilege on a quarterly basis and they think it’s fantastic. Not only am I confident that data security has been tightened but it has also freed up IT so they can focus efforts on other areas of the infrastructure.”

Ken Johnson, Senior IT Security Analyst, Nottingham Building Society

Automated entitlement reviews

DataPrivilege ensures that access to business data is consistently evaluated by the right people. Entitlement reviews are delivered directly to data owners which let them see who currently has access to their data and make changes without any involvement from IT.

Entitlement Review

Harvard Business Review

"IT is most effective when focused on technology, including infrastructure technologies, enterprise and other systems, and tools. Data is far from its sweet spot. " —Thomas C. Redman

Actionable intelligence

DataPrivilege’s entitlement reviews include highly accurate recommendations derived from DatAdvantage’s machine learning algorithms. What’s more, users and groups outside of the data owner’s purview (e.g. administrative groups) may be hidden so that the reviews provide data owners with only relevant and actionable information.

Schedule reviews on your time

Reviews can be scheduled based on business policy to take place at regular intervals based on the needs of the business.

Some permissions need to be reviewed more often than others. You can establish separate schedules for different folders, departments, servers, and more.

Unprecedented accountability

All workflow events are recorded for audit and reporting, which can prove the enforcement of governance practices. Authorizations, entitlement reviews and other management reports provide evidence of process adherence and help satisfy compliance requirements.

Save countless hours on permissions requests

Authorization workflows let users submit access requests through an easy-to-use web form and the request will be routed to the proper stakeholders based on the workflows you setup.

Permission Request Form
Approve or Deny Requests via Email

Simple approval process

Data owners and authorizers can respond to permissions requests directly via email, in multiple languages, or within the DataPrivilege web application.

Once approved, access is granted automatically without any involvement from IT. Assign an expiration date on an authorization to ensure access is revoked automatically.

Automatically prevent unwanted access

Many organizations have business rules where one department’s employees should never have access to another department’s data. DataPrivilege uses ethical walls to automatically prevent new requests from being approved that would violate your business rules, detect and notify you of any existing rule violations, and correct them.

Reduce the burden on IT

By shifting responsibility for data entitlement management to the data business owners, IT is able to conserve resources. The result is nearly immediate return on investment to organizations deploying Varonis DataPrivilege. The cost savings are further augmented by gains in the speed and efficiency with which data access requests are fulfilled.

Local Account Management

DataPrivilege allows you to set administrative access through local groups: now you can manage and grant temporary admin access to local machines. Local account management enables you to delegate privileges, along with automated expiration of access. By using DataPrivilege, all access requests are tracked, audited, and reportable.
