Varonis solves common Azure Files data security challenges

Varonis tackles hundreds of use cases, making it the ultimate platform to stop data breaches and ensure compliance.

Sensitive data discovery and loss prevention

  • Varonis continuously finds and classifies sensitive data hidden in your Azure files shares
  • Pairs classification results with permissions to reveal where sensitive data is overexposed
  • Shows you where files may not be classified by Microsoft, but should be 

Risky permissions and stale accounts

  • Varonis gives you a clear view of effective permissions, including what users can do, and how they got that access
  • Decipher complex permission structures like nested groups and inheritance
  • Create a policy to automatically remove unnecessary access to data — from eliminating excessive access from the “everyone” group or fixing broken permissions 


Fill gaps in native auditing

  • Varonis creates a human-readable audit trail to answer key questions that can’t be determined using only the event log, such as when a file is created vs. modified and when someone failed to access a file
  • Process millions of events per hour and monitor everything you need with minimal server and network overhead
  • Accelerate cross-platform security investigations for cloud and on-prem environments 

One platform for multi-cloud, SaaS, and on-premises data.

Varonis protects enterprise data where it lives — in the largest and most important data stores and applications across the cloud and behind your firewall.
