Challenge

A U.S. Federal Credit Union originally turned to Varonis in 2010 for visibility into data access and a clearer audit trail.

Once they achieved these goals, the company shifted their focus on tighter security: they sought to clean up access controls on files that had either been over-shared or were open to all employees, lock down critical data sets, and develop a systematic approach to identifying and stopping potential insider threats before they became serious.

“When we need to look at what files a user has touched or shared, we rely on Varonis. It’s essential for getting to the bottom of suspicious activity, like someone downloading or uploading a bunch of files from our shared drive.”

Solution

  • Intuitive data monitoning: DatAdvantage maps out who does and who doesn’t have access to sensitive data across all file systems, both on-premises and in the cloud. DatAdvantage allows the U.S. credit union to visualize permissions via an intuitive dashboard, audit every single file touched, and automate permission changes based on their specified controls.
  • Visibility and protection for sensitive data on-prem and in the cloud: The credit union relies on DatAdvantage for Windows, Data Classification Engine and the DatAlert Suite to locate and safeguard the information of its members, plus over 10,000 end users.
  • SIEM integration for additional insights: With Varonis DatAlert functionality integrated into Splunk, they are able to easily navigate the sea of information their SIEM provides and drill down into each context-rich alert for additional insights.
