Label Your Sensitive Data

Add labels to your sensitive files for additional protection: enable business policy, categorize sensitive data, and automatically apply rules to different types of sensitive data.

Data Classification Labels utilizes our sophisticated rule capabilities to target specific data like GDPR or PII, and leverages our extensive pattern repository to build even more labeling rules.

Automatically apply classification labels and encrypt files that Varonis has identified as sensitive. Users can manually tag documents, and Varonis will provide additional context around the data.


How it Works


Data Classification Labels integrates with Microsoft Information Protection, leveraging both Azure and RMS encryption to protect incoming and outgoing data. Correlate classification rules with MIP labels to apply security policies.

Extend coverage to additional 3rd party integrations like endpoint and DLP to get 360° data protection.

Build your Label Policy with Data Classification Labels

Classify a file (or set of files) based on its MIP label

Decrypt and scan the content of MIP encrypted files

Automatically apply an MIP label according to the configuration, while skipping any file which was manually labeled

Automatically correct (and report on) mislabeled files

Automatically perform bulk re-label when a policy is changed

Enrich Varonis classification report with classification labels data


Automatically Apply Labels

Associate a classification rule with an MIP label to automatically apply label policy to sensitive data.

Fix Outdated Policies

Had a policy and changed it? We’ll go back and fix and relabel to keep those policies up to date.

Fix Mislabeled Files

Fix mislabeled files that contain sensitive data based on our advanced classification engine and re-apply the correct labels. Analyze existing classification results for labeling, intercept existing labels and apply new ones automatically.

Get 360° coverage

Leverage additional controls based on Data Classification Labels with 3rd party integrations like endpoint and DLP.
