Microsoft Windows file servers and NAS devices like EMC Celerra and NetApp filers present significant challenges to Windows administrators. Permissions management, access auditing, data owner identification, and protecting sensitive data now require automation—there are simply too many files, folders, ACLs, and groups in Active Directory to continue managing all of them manually.
Microsoft Windows file servers, including NAS devices like EMC Celerra and NetApp filers, present significant management and protection challenges to Windows administrators:
Varonis® DatAdvantage® addresses these challenges by aggregating Active Directory user and group details, ACL information and all data access events—without requiring native OS auditing—to build a complete picture of who can and who is accessing data, and who should have their access revoked. It also leads IT to rightful data owners, so the right people can ensure appropriate access and usage. With the Varonis Data Classification Framework, IT can immediately identify folders with excessive permissions that contain quantities of sensitive data.
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.
