IT professionals who manage permissions struggle with the tools provided natively in Windows, UNIX/Linux, SharePoint and Exchange. As the data grows, so do the numbers of folders, directories, SharePoint sites, mailboxes and public folders—this means more access control lists (ACLs), more Active Directory groups, more LDAP groups, and more SharePoint groups.
Permissions management is becoming a high priority for audit compliance, security, and data governance—this means more permissions reports, more permissions audits, and more entitlement reviews.
Whether you're working with NTFS Permissions, Share Permissions, SharePoint Permissions, UNIX permissions, or POSIX ACLs, the challenges in analyzing, testing, and making permissions changes are the same:
The Varonis Metadata Framework® addresses these security challenges by enabling customers with unstructured and semi-structured data residing on their Files Systems, SharePoint Sites, NAS devices, and Exchange Servers to audit data access activity, fix and maintain access controls, identify sensitive data, find data owners, and involve them in access review and authorization processes.

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.
