Discover, manage, and protect your GDPR data with Varonis.

Varonis makes it easy to automatically find and classify GDPR affected data: from national identification numbers to IBAN to blood type to credit card information. We have over 150 GDPR specific patterns so that you can easily identify and protect data that falls within the GDPR.

Sample mapping of GDPR Articles to Varonis:

Article 17
Right to erasure and “to be forgotten”
Configure end-to-end migration rules based on defined criteria to allow for the rapid and safe execution of complex data migrations, and to easily implement and enforce policies for data retention or deletion.
Article 25
Data protection by design and by default
Monitor, track and report on file activity & user behavior, manage permissions and get to a least privilege model.
Article 30
Records of Processing Activities
Conduct data security reviews and generate reports based on type of data, access activity, and more.
Article 32
Security of Processing
Reduce risk and manage access controls: automate and impose least privilege with entitlement reviews and proactively enforced ethical walls and security policies.
Article 33
Notification of a personal data breach to the supervisory authority
Detect abnormal data activity, policy violations and generate alerts to notify you as it happens.
Article 35
Data protection impact assessment
Monitor and assess your state of data protection and security with a data risk assessment: identify and lock down sensitive data, analyze accounts with suspicious behavior, detect malware activity, and more.

One of the biggest regulatory requirements right now is to be totally confident about where customer information resides on your network. When you know where it is, then there are no surprises.

— Jim Hanlon, SVP & CTO, Dedham Savings Bank

“Prior to implementing a least privilege model with Varonis, 40% of our files were overexposed when they didn’t need to be. This kind of exposure isn’t a problem until a security breach occurs. Should there be a breach, we’re now able to quickly identify and target problem areas in a manner we weren’t previously able to do."

— Denise Evans, Vice President of Information Technology, Miramax

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.

— Wade Sendall, Vice President, The Boston Globe
