As organizations grow and change, so must directory services domains in Windows Active Directory, LDAP, NIS, etc. An updated, organized domain structure is easier to manage and uses domain resources more efficiently. Legacy domains provide little organizational value relative to their maintenance and infrastructure requirements, but before an organization can safely decommission or remove a domain its remaining functions must be identified and absorbed.
Whether you are consolidating or rationalizing multiple domains that have grown organically over time, or adapting to an organizational change due to merger, acquisition, or divestiture, the same questions arise:
The Varonis Data Governance Suite provides a comprehensive, automated solution to answer these questions, providing a framework to identify the legacy users and groups in your directory services that are present in access control lists (ACLs) on file systems, SharePoint, and Exchange Public folders, and determine whether they are actually being used to access data, identify inactive users, and empty security groups.
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.
Our 30-Day Free Trial provides a full audit of your file system or your SharePoint environment. Audit permissions, auditing access, usage statistics, recommendations, impact analysis, and identification of business owners.
You can instantly conduct a permissions audit: File and folder access permissions and how those map to specific users and groups. You can even generate reports.
Varonis® DatAdvantage® will begin to show you which users are accessing the data, and how.
Varonis® DatAdvantage® will actually make highly reliable recommendations about how to limit access to files and folders to just those users who need it for their jobs.
