Ransomware Solutions

Varonis protects you from ransomware beyond the endpoint by analyzing behavior on your biggest and most valuable data.

We wanted to ensure that we could prevent and monitor any ransomware or malware attacks: DatAlert has allowed us to do that very easily. It was demonstrated very quickly that this is a product that works – Varonis does what it says it can do.

"We had many security tools in place including network, endpoint, IPS, and IDS.

Out of all these products, Varonis was the only solution that alerted us to the ransomware we encountered."

– IT Director | Seismic Data Company

“A week into our implementation we had a brush with ransomware. One of the employees remotely connected and went on a site that started downloading Locky. Luckily DatAlert immediately told me when the individual started encrypting the file, so we disabled the account and restored the files.

Without Varonis we would have ended up with a much broader exposure of the breach and the result would have been a lot worse.”


– Lee Powe | CIO, Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital

“With security, you can’t be trusting…the best tool out there that we saw is Varonis.

We’re using Varonis on every single server on our network – every single server is monitored… a lot of people don’t document everything they touch – this thing does. It catches everything.”


– Stuart Browy | Security Engineer, TrialCard

“Cryptolocker is a huge security threat, so having Varonis DatAlert in place to help prevent attacks is a no brainer for us. When anyone from the outside tries to encrypt a file on the network or use a compression tool like WinZip, DatAlert will let us know. Also, we can receive alerts about suspicious internal activity.

It’s nice to know Varonis is looking out for us and will be able to catch things and help us proactively prevent internal and external data breaches.”


– Jim Hanlon | SVP & CTO, Dedham Savings Bank

“Varonis works across the whole organization – it works with our infrastructure, our active directory, it works on all the hardware and software we have. It’s allowed us to see what goes on – and see what’s out there.

We were able to detect and disable a ransomware infection within 10 minutes of an attack.”


– Wade Sendall | Vice President of IT, Boston Globe

“We’ve been so pleased with the implementation of Varonis. It provides us with a more granular look at where our data resides and who is accessing it. As an organization representing the health insurance industry, security is a central priority for us and with the Varonis solutions in place, we know we can rest assured that any unusual activity will be caught and stopped before damage takes place.”


– Anthony Meoni | VP of Information and Business Technology, American Health Insurance Plans

“Of all the expensive security products we’ve purchased, DatAlert is the only solution that has done, and is doing, all of the alerting and notification of anomalous behavior, especially ransomware”


– IT Director | Government Law Enforcement Agency

“In short, Varonis is the only solution deployed in our environment with the power to identify infected files post-mortem and generate real-time alerts on any future cryptoware or ransomware activity.”


– Director of Security | Federal Credit Union

“DatAlert adds huge value to us: with the threat of things like CryptoLocker coming down the wire, we wanted to be in a really strong position to know that we were making the right choices and providing the right protection for our data so that we could add value for our users and give them the assurance… that we have a proactive solution in place to resolve and mitigate that risk.”


– Andrew Soper | Head of IT, Frontier Economics

“Our business revolves around client confidentiality and intellectual property: we were evaluating our security products, and there was a hole in terms of what’s happening within the network, and any malicious activity going on in the network.

It was demonstrated very quickly that [DatAlert] is a product that works – Varonis does what it says it can do.”


– Ron Mark | Innovation and IT Manager, Gas Strategies

“Varonis is a one-stop shop: auditability and accountability of your file systems, and the ability to stop and assess risks. We can act very quickly on threats, before they have a chance to actually affect our system”


– Ian Aldridge | IT infrastructure Manager, Semperian PPP Investment Partners

“Malware got through our [new, next-generation] firewall, IDS, and alerts on our SIEM. We also had two separate [malware detection] agents running on the workstation.

A Varonis alert triggered within three minutes of the outbreak. We had enabled alerting but had yet to configure any kind of automatic response, so we just walked down the hall an unplugged the machine. “


– Director of Information Security | Timber Production Company

“We used the Data Classification Framework to scan 3.3 TB of data and, in a few hours, identified and helped us restore tens of thousands of encrypted files on our NAS. We now use DatAlert as part of our incident response plan to detect and defend against ransomware attacks in progress.”


– VP of Information Technology | National Healthcare Provider
