Varonis' Metadata Framework technology continually collects and analyzes data from your enterprise data stores and perimeter devices. Our architecture uses distributed collectors that allow you to scale out as your IT infrastructure grows. We never write to disk on the systems that we’re auditing, and we have patented data structures and algorithms for normalizing metadata, so you never have to worry about purging and pruning historical information.
We collect 6 core metadata streams that are essential ingredients for data protection. By combining this metadata in innovative and unique ways, we can do things like prioritize your riskiest data based on sensitivity, exposure, and access activity. We can generate recommendations on which users no longer require access, identify data owners, model permissions changes and much more.
A powerful commit engine can simulate access control changes in a sandbox and commit them when ready. Varonis abstracts away all the idiosyncrasies between data stores, performs dependency checking, and allows for multi-threaded jobs, scheduling and rolling back changes.
