Varonis was recently named a “Readers’ Top Five” pick for Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solutions in a newly released survey of nearly 5,000 TechTarget readers. The survey respondents are IT and security professionals who are attempting to protect their organizations from the onslaught of data breaches, meet compliance and audit requirements, and protect intellectual property.
SearchSecurity.com, a TechTarget site, conducted the reader survey in October. When asked “Which DLP vendors are you considering for your data protection project?” four responses were by far the most common: three very large, broadly focused companies (Symantec, McAfee/Intel Security Group and Microsoft) along with Varonis, the focused pioneer of unstructured data management and protection.
In the survey of 4,635 readers, the most important drivers for future data protection projects were:
- “Meeting compliance/audit requirements” (69%)
- “Attempting to avoid future data breach” (53%)
- “Protection of intellectual property” (46%).
We’re pleased to see continued awareness increase of the market’s need for the kind of solutions we have been developing and perfecting over the past decade. In a recent market guide, Gartner highlighted the advantages of using User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) to detect malicious insider behavior that often goes unnoticed by other technologies. Varonis solutions are unique as we combine DLP capabilities with permissions context and what we believe are the most advanced user behavior analytics available to help organizations protect their file systems and unstructured data from insider threats.
