Varonis Version 7.0

2 min read
Last updated Feb 22, 2022


    Version 7.0 of the Varonis Data Security Platform is here – featuring new cloud support and advanced threat detection and response capabilities: new event sources and enrichment; out-of-the-box threat intelligence applied to Varonis security insights; and playbooks that arm customers with incident response plans right in the web UI so customers can easily follow best-practice responses to security incidents. 

    New Dashboards Highlight Cloud, Active Directory and GDPR Risks

    Active Directory risk dashboards, GDPR dashboards, and Office 365 dashboards offer at-a-glance visibility into critical exposures and concerns on key data stores and Active Directory. Widgets within each dashboard provide drill-down context and explanations of security risks and vulnerabilities: from vulnerable user accounts to at-risk cloud data to potential compliance violations.

    Threat Intelligence Details Provide Deeper Insights

    Support for Box Security Events

    The Varonis Data Security Platform was created to protect enterprise data wherever it’s stored, and that now includes data stored in Box. Customers can filter, search, and sort by event type including impersonation events, sharing events, and more; highlight risky behavior like over-permissive sharing and impersonation; and see where to remediate security vulnerabilities.  

    Additional Office 365 and Active Directory Events Add Intelligence and Context for Alerting and Investigations

    New event and entity information enhance Exchange Online, Azure AD and Active Directory monitoring. Attackers commonly exploit weaknesses or misconfigurations in Azure and on-premises Active Directory to escalate privileges and access data, including email stored in Exchange Online; additional telemetry from their directory services will help customers reduce the time it takes to detect and respond to threats on premises and in the cloud.  

    Threat Intelligence Details Provide Deeper Insights

    Monitor and track malicious (or suspicious) connections with out-of-the-box threat intelligence.  Varonis security insights and events are now enriched with information about risky external connections. Customers can now get external IP and URL enrichment in context with suspicious behavior and unusual activity for deeper insight on potential security incidents.

    Incident Response Playbooks Map Out Next Steps

    Incident response plans from our cybersecurity research lab are now built into the Varonis UI as playbooks: our security experts mapped out best practices for responding to different types of cyberattacks – covering everything from incident notification to containment to recovery, along with actionable steps to eradicate threats and improve security postures for future attacks. 

    Increased Speed and Scalability with Solr

    Version 7 optimizes the use of Solr for dramatically faster and more intuitive investigations. Solr enables rapid data aggregation, visualization, and horizontal scalability on commodity hardware, even with billions of events. By innovating on top of Solr, Varonis customers can provision relatively little hardware and receive significant performance improvements. Customers will benefit from faster search auto-completion, improved search response and immediate access to search results, even during their compilation.  

    …and More

    Additional features from version 7.0 include more out-of-the-box reports (including reports on overexposed regulated and GDPR data); new threat models to detect additional types of cyberattacks; faster updates to the web UI; saved searches for more collaborative investigations, and more.
