Introducing Varonis for Microsoft 365 Copilot 

Varonis for Microsoft 365 Copilot is a new add-on that builds on our existing Microsoft 365 security suite and features new capabilities to monitor Copilot data access in real time, detect abnormal Copilot interactions, and automatically limit sensitive data accessible by both humans and AI. 

Varonis for M365 Copilot's rapidly growing features include: 

  • Copilot posture dashboards: Get a real-time view of sensitive and regulated data exposed to Copilot users, see usage trends, and track how much sensitive data is accessed by AI. 
  • Copilot policy automation: Get your Microsoft 365 environment ready for a successful Copilot rollout, safely eliminating massive amounts of data exposure in just days. 
  • Copilot monitoring and forensics: Capture all Copilot interactions, including which files are referenced in prompt responses, in our centralized and searchable audit trail. 
  • Copilot threat detection: Our user behavior analysis (UEBA) engine factors in Copilot activity and notifies customers of abnormal or suspicious Copilot interactions with sensitive data. 
  • Athena AI integration: Use Athena AI's SOC assistant and natural language search to easily investigate and resolve Copilot-related security incidents. 


Answer questions like, "How many people are using Copilot?" or "Who are my Copilot super users?"


Policies that are designed to help ensure Copilot readiness and ongoing security are marked with a "Copilot Remediation" badge.



Access Intelligence UI helps you quickly pinpoint what sensitive data is exposed to certain users via Copilot.


Using behavior-based rules instead of static triggers reduces false positives and alerts.

New security posture reporting 

Varonis released new security posture reports that help organizations track and report on resource-level configuration drift and security posture changes.

These reports allow users to track all the configuration drift within their environments in one exportable report, and build on our existing capabilities to combat configuration drift in your environments

Resource Level Misconfigs

Review all security posture misconfigurations within a single exportable report.
