We are thrilled to announce that Varonis and Microsoft forged a new strategic collaboration to help organizations safely harness one of the most powerful productivity tools on the planet — Microsoft Copilot for Microsoft 365.

Together, Varonis and Microsoft are helping organizations confidently roll out AI while continually assessing and improving their Microsoft 365 data security posture behind the scenes before, during, and after deployment. So you can trust your AI rollout is secure and compliant — and stays that way.

Better together

IT and security teams want to ensure that excessive permissions, collaboration links, and mislabeled files won't lead to unintentional data exposure when they deploy Microsoft Copilot for Microsoft 365. We take that concern off the table so users can enjoy the power of Microsoft's AI immediately.
David Bass, Varonis EVP of Engineering and Chief Technology Officer

The security model for Copilot for Microsoft 365 relies on a user's existing Microsoft 365 permissions to determine which files, emails, chats, notes, etc. can be used to generate AI responses. These information protection capabilities give you the tools to know your data, protect your data, and prevent data loss.

Complementing Microsoft 365's built-in data protection features, Varonis provides customers with other options in how to manage and optimize an organization's data security model, preventing data exposure by ensuring only the right people can access sensitive data at all times.

Varonis' integration gives customers the added security and compliance controls necessary to quickly and confidently adopt Microsoft Copilot for Microsoft 365.
