Each year, Varonis conducts over a thousand risk assessments for customers and potential customers. The assessment provides insights into the risks associated with an organization’s data, exposing high-risk areas and providing recommendations on access remediation to reduce their risk profile. Assessments are typically performed on a subset of the organization’s production environment.
The Varonis Data Risk Report provides a glimpse into the vulnerabilities found within a sample of the assessments conducted by Varonis in 2016.
