Often the most valuable and fastest growing asset a business owns is its human-generated data, a kind of unstructured data that employees spend hours creating and refining every day. This includes spreadsheets, word processing documents, presentations, audio files, video files, emails and text messages. This data usually contains a company’s financial information, product plans, strategic initiatives, intellectual property and numerous other forms of vital information.
Varonis helps you to automate unstructured data protection and management so the right people have access to the right data at all times, use is monitored and abuse is caught. Their Metadata Framework technology platform extracts critical metadata, or data about data, from a company’s IT infrastructure and uses this contextual information to map functional relationships among employees, data objects, content and usage.
The solution lends itself to a variety of use cases, including data governance, data security, archiving, file synchronization, enhanced mobile data accessibility and information collaboration, where you can see who can access sensitive data, monitor access activity, and prevent data breaches.
