For most organizations, 50% of data becomes 'stale' after 90 days. Unfortunately, it's very difficult to determine where that data resides, so it remains in expensive file systems and SharePoint storage, possibly exposed to risk due to excessive permissions and adding little to the organization's productivity. Like data, the security groups and access control lists grow stale—groups may be empty or unused on the file systems, or may be deleted from directory services and not removed from the access control lists, resulting in the "unresolved SID/orphan SID" issue.
In order to properly update directory services and permissions, it takes more than a search of active directory—it requires answers to difficult questions:
The Varonis Data Governance Suite provides a comprehensive, automated solution to answer these questions, providing a framework to identify stale data, legacy users and groups in your directory services that are present in access control lists (ACLs) on file systems, inactive users, disabled users, unused and empty security groups. After initial data clean up and directory clean-up activities, Varonis provides an automated solution to efficiently maintain your data sets, permissions, and groups in your directory services in Active Directory, SharePoint, LDAP, and NIS.
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.
