Not your typical Active Directory monitoring.

By correlating AD events with data access and network activity, Varonis can spot behavioral anomalies like a service account accessing sensitive data from a personal device.

Key features


Real-time awareness of AD risk

Dashboards provide a high-level view of your Active Directory and Azure AD vulnerabilities, so you can analyze your gaps, prioritize your biggest risks, and demonstrate progress over time.

Domain visualization

Easily visualize all your domain and local users, groups, and objects in a simple-to-use interface and quickly answer questions like, “Who can change critical settings like adding users to privileged groups?” 

Unified audit trail

With a human-readable audit trail, admins or security analysts are only a few clicks away from viewing all activity and events in Active Directory—right alongside their sensitive file opens, email sends, web requests, and VPN logins. 

Pre-defined audit reports

Report on key risk indicators, shadow accounts, user & group changes, GPO modifications, and more. Run reports on-demand or email them on a schedule.


Change management and rollback

Our multi-threaded commit engine can simulate access control changes in a sandbox and execute them when you’re ready. Schedule actions for a change control window and rollback if needed.

Privileged account discovery

Varonis auto-discovers executives, service accounts, and admins based on user behavior, group memberships, and other metadata.

Privileged account monitoring

Track enrolment of new admins, admin account changes, and segregation of duty violations by admins.

SIEM integration

Send hi-fidelity data-centric alerts to your SIEM for correlation via syslog, SNMP, or one of our ready-made connectors.
