Simplify NFS Security

UNIX/Linux servers are built for remote access and administration—plus they store valuable data—making them prime targets for attackers.

Varonis helps you lower your risk of data exposure and non-compliance by finding sensitive data on your Network File System (NFS) shares and simplifying the complexity of managing UNIX and POSIX ACLs.

Find the needles in your NFS haystack

Varonis automatically discovers sensitive data across Linux or UNIX servers and UNIX-accessible NAS devices and shows you where your most valuable and vulnerable data is at risk.

Spot suspicious user

Varonis transparently monitors NFS and Samba activity and alerts you to potential threats, like unauthorized changes to config files or permission changes on critical directories.

Our threat models continually learn and adapt to behaviors specific to your organization.
