400+ GDPR and CCPA Rules and Counting
Never write another complex RegEx to find personal data.
Policy Pack enhances Data Classification Engine with hundreds of new patterns that can accurately discover personal information specific to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).
We update the patterns and rules automatically to equip you with the latest changes in data privacy laws so you’ll never fall behind.
Pinpoint Accuracy at Petabyte Scale
Our classification engine goes beyond regular expressions and includes pre-built databases of known-valid values, proximity matching, negative keywords, and algorithmic verification to generate high-fidelity results.
We do a lot of extra work to make sure you get accurate classification results with few false positives.
GDPR & CCPA Visibility Across Your Entire Environment
Varonis continuously discovers unstructured and semi-structured data on premises and in the cloud, on Windows servers, NAS devices, SharePoint, UNIX/Linux servers, and Office 365 (OneDrive and SharePoint Online), with support for file types such as .doc, .pptx, .xlsx, .zip, .rar, .pdf and many more.
Don’t Just Find Personal Data.
Finding personal information is only the first step toward data privacy. With the Varonis Data Security Platform, you can protect it with confidence.
Visualize Exposed Personal Data
Prioritize risk based on sensitivity, exposure, and staleness. Demonstrate remediation progress with dashboards that track PII exposure over time.
Rapidly Reduce Your Attack Surface
Automatically restrict access to personal information and minimize its exposure with the Automation Engine.
Take the Pain out of DSARs
Fulfill data subject access requests (DSARs) and Right to be Forgotten requests with ease using DatAnswers. Export the results to be moved, deleted, or quarantined.
Enforce Data Protection Policies
Reduce risk by identifying personal information that’s stale or no longer needed and automatically moving, quarantining, or archiving it with the Data Transport Engine.
Monitor & Protect PII with Advanced Threat Detection
Detect potential breaches by monitoring how regulated personal data is accessed. Use DatAlert to prevent data leaks and help meet breach notification requirements and reduce your risk of fines for non-compliance.
Varonis’ out-of-the-box threat models use machine learning to build behavioral profiles over hours, days and weeks for every user and device, so when they behave abnormally, they get noticed.

FAQFrequently Asked Questions
What policies are covered by Policy Pack?
GDPR (all EU member states) and CCPA. Data Classification Engine by itself contains additional built-in rules and policies for hundreds of other regulations such as PCI, HIPAA, SOX, and others.
What do I need to do when there are updates to Policy Pack?
Nothing! Varonis automatically downloads and updates Policy Pack for changes in the law or to add new patterns and rules.
What else do I need to run Policy Pack?
DatAdvantage and Data Classification Engine are the prerequisites you need to use Policy Pack.
How long does Varonis take to scan my data?
It depends on many different factors, like hardware, bandwidth, amount of data, etc. During an initial scan, Varonis reads every file. After the initial scan is completed, Varonis performs incremental scans, and ONLY scans files that we know have changed thanks to our activity feed. This makes every scan beyond the initial scan orders of magnitude faster.
