Our new universal database connector allows Varonis to rapidly integrate with and extend its vast library of classifiers to virtually any modern database management system (DBMS).  

This expands Varonis’ DSPM coverage, building on existing support for popular databases such as Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, and PostgreSQL, allowing customers to centralize data classification efforts in a single, unified platform.  

Integrate Varonis with databases anywhere.

With this new universal database connector, customers can quickly integrate and use Varonis' world-class data classification with their preferred databases — whether they’re hosted in the cloud or on-premises — and provide visibility into sensitive data risk.

Once connected, Varonis will automatically discover and classify sensitive data down to the table and column level and present you with the results in an intuitive, easy-to-read tree view.

Our extensive library of built-in patterns helps you understand where you have sensitive and regulated data concentrated across your databases without writing a single rule. Varonis supports the discovery and classification of virtually every sensitive data type, such as PII, PCI, PHI, secrets, and more.

You can also easily customize rules to discover intellectual property or other org-specific data.

From the tree view, you can easily see where you have concentrations of sensitive data down to the column level.

Click into each of your database columns from the tree view to see exactly which types of sensitive data you have, such as phone numbers, social security numbers, addresses, and credit card numbers, along with the regulations they fall under.
