Trust & Security
Earning and keeping your trust is everything to us.
Our approach to security
We understand that a good security program requires ongoing efforts, constant evaluation, and updates to improve infrastructure and cloud offerings. We regularly conduct internal and external assessments and perpetually update and improve our policies so that existing controls comply with what we believe are the highest security, privacy, and compliance standards.
At Varonis, the security of our products is always top of mind. Varonis works closely with third-party auditing firms to ensure our products meet strict industry standards and are audited and reviewed regularly. Varonis has achieved numerous certifications and successfully completed audits, including ISO 27001, 27017, 27018, and 27701, Service Organization Control (SOC®) 2 Type 2, and CSA's STAR Level 1 security assessment.
