As a Microsoft Solutions Partner, Varonis provides critical security capabilities beyond what Microsoft can offer natively. Varonis protects Azure Files (both cloud and on-prem deployments) with sensitive data classification, permissions management, and custom risk reports.
Our vast library of data classification policies finds and classifies sensitive data hidden in your Azure file shares. Varonis goes beyond regular expressions with proximity matching, negative keywords, and algorithmic verification to generate accurate results. We can even show you where files may not be classified by Microsoft, but should be.
Always know who can access sensitive data. By correlating identities with permissions and activity, see where data is accessible to too many people and remove access that’s not needed, limiting the blast radius of a potential attack.
Varonis monitors Azure Files without requiring native auditing. We capture all the critical events you need — such as read, move, modify, and delete — and enrich events for faster cross-platform security investigations across cloud and on-prem environments.
Varonis combines classification results, user access activity, and permissions to give you a comprehensive view of where your data is most at risk. Live risk dashboards highlight critical risks, such as sensitive folders open to every employee or folders with stale permissions.
Instead of dozens of siloed admin portals that provide partial visibility, Varonis offers comprehensive data coverage across the Microsoft 365 suite, including Azure Storage. The unified console helps your team easily understand and minimize data risk.
"We thought we had a good handle on our file shares, but we were managing them manually. On day one, Varonis showed us that we had a finance directory open to everyone at our corporate office. Then it allowed us to act immediately to get those files secured."Read case study
"With Varonis, there’s less stress on the service desk, less stress on my team, and less stress on data owners who can now grant access to folders in under five minutes. Everyone’s happier — they’re getting results within minutes, not days."Read case study
