DatAdvantage for Windows

datAdvantage

The Varonis DatAdvantage software for Windows solution aggregates user, permissions, data and access event information from directories and file servers. Sophisticated analytics applied to the collected information show detailed data use and determine rightful access based on business need.

Varonis DatAdvantage for Windows provides:

 

Visibility into permissions

  • By combining user and group information taken directly from Active Directory, LDAP, NIS, or other directory services with a complete picture of the file system, DatAdvantage gives organizations a complete picture of their permissions structures. Both logical and physical permissions are displayed and organized highlighting and optionally aggregating NTFS and share permissions. Flag, tag and annotate your files and folders to track, analyze and report on users, groups and data. Varonis DatAdvantage also shows you every user and group that can access data as well as every folder that can be accessed by any user or group.

Complete Audit Trail:

  • DatAdvantage monitors every touch of every file on the file system, normalizes, processes, and stores them in a normalized database so that they are quickly sortable and searchable. Detailed information for every file event is provided; all data can be reported on and provided to data owners. Data collection does not require native object success auditing on Windows.

Recommendations and Modeling:

  • By combining the information on who can access the data, the audit trail detailing who is accessing the data, and sophisticated bi-directional cluster analysis, Varonis DatAdvantage provides actionable intelligence on where excess file permissions and group memberships can be safely removed without affecting normal business processes. DatAdvantage also provides the ability to model and simulate permissions changes in its sandbox so they can be tested without affecting the production environment.

Data Ownership Identification:

  • Because there is an audit of every file access event, DatAdvantage can perform analysis of user activity to effectively identify business owners of data. Organizations are also able to upload lists of data owners to assign owners to large numbers of folders. Reports concerning data access, activity, changes to their folders and groups, and stale data can be provided automatically to data owners to involve them directly in the data governance process. As owners change, they may be cloned or replaced so that ongoing data ownership maintenance is simplified.

DatAdvantage for Directory Services

directory services

Directory Services are critical—every user authenticates to Active Directory or LDAP, and nearly every ACL, mailbox, and SharePoint site, and more and more applications refer to users and groups in these directories for authentication, access control, and storage of critical attributes. As critical as directory services are, changes and other activities are often difficult to audit and analyze.

Varonis DatAdvantage for Directory Services provides:

 

Visual Representation of your domain

  • Active Directory hierarchies can get extremely complex even in small organizations. In large organizations, sometimes the MMC snap-in for AD doesn’t even load. DatAdvantage is built to display, filter, and analyze large, complex hierarchical structures, and extends those capabilities to Active Directory domains and Forests.

Complete Audit Trail:

  • Right click on any OU, group, or AD object and jump to the log to view a complete audit trail of all changes and activity on that object over any time period. Correlate these events with file system activity and other changes.

Recommendations and Modeling:

  • By combining the information on who can access the data, the audit trail detailing who is accessing the data, and sophisticated bi-directional cluster analysis, Varonis DatAdvantage for Windows, UNIX, Exchange, and SharePoint provide actionable intelligence on where excess group memberships can be safely removed without affecting normal business processes. DatAdvantage also provides the ability to model and simulate group changes in its sandbox so they can be tested without affecting the production environment.

Summary:

  • With Varonis DatAdvantage for Directory Services, organizations achieve enterprise-wide governance of Active Directory, with complete mapping and visualization of the hierarchical structure, a complete audit trail of Active Directory changes and activity, and the ability to combine these metadata streams to simulate changes and identify excessive group membership.

IDU Classification Framework

Varonis_IDU_CF

The Varonis IDU Classification Framework gives organizations visibility into the content of data, providing intelligence on where sensitive data resides across its file systems. By integrating file classification information into the Varonis Metadata Framework™, and presenting it in the DatAdvantage interface, the Varonis IDU Classification Framework enables actionable intelligence for data governance – including prioritized reports showing where sensitive content is highly concentrated and over-exposed, and an audit trail of all Active Directory activity, Varonis gives you context around the sensitive content that we find, allowing you to prioritize and successfully protect it, remain compliant, and avoid data breaches.

Varonis IDU Classification Framework provides:

 

The Varonis Metadata Framework

  • The Intelligent Data Use (IDU) platform is at the core of the Varonis Data Governance Suite. It collects metadata about users (users and groups within the environment), permissions (who has the potential to access data), and activity (who is accessing data). The Varonis Metadata Framework non-intrusively collects this critical metadata, generates metadata where existing metadata is lacking (e.g. its file system filters and content inspection technologies), pre-processes it, normalizes it, analyzes it, stores it, and presents it to IT administrators in aninteractive, dynamic interface.

The Varonis IDU Classification Framework:

  • The Varonis IDU Classification Framework extends the IDU Framework by incorporating content classification information produced by either the Varonis content classification engine or classification metadata from a third-party source, such as RSA DLP. Classification metadata indicates that the file likely contains keywords, phrases and patterns (i.e. regular expressions) that are of interest to the organization.

Actionable, Intelligent, Fast:

  • Because the Varonis IDU Classification Framework is part of the larger Varonis Metadata Framework, it’s able to leverage its metadata layer to perform file classification more quickly and intelligently. The results can be inspected through the DatAdvantage interface (provided the user has adequate credentials). For example, with DatAdvantage access audit information, the IDU Classification Framework quickly classifies new and modified data to enable true incremental scanning. It also prioritizes scans based on permissions exposure, frequency of activity, and other metadata parameters that organizations can tune to their requirements. And, because DatAdvantage has identified the data owners, you can work with them to determine who specifically needs access to sensitive data based on actual usage, and DatAdvantage recommendations. The end result is actionable intelligence on where business critical data may be overexposed, and where access can be reduced without impacting business processes.

Extensible Architecture:

  • The included classification engine provides a powerful and flexible method for classifying data using metadata, pattern-based content matching, and dictionary-based content matching with dynamic, autoupdating dictionaries. The Varonis IDU Classification Framework can also consume classification metadata from third-party classification products that have already been deployed, displaying files they’ve identified as sensitive alongside other Varonis metadata, enabling actionable data protection and management. Classification information can be imported into the Varonis IDU Classification Framework through csv files automatically on a scheduled basis.

DataPrivilege

Varonis_DataPrivilege

Varonis DataPrivilege automates data governance by providing a framework for users and data owners to be directly involved in access entitlement review and authorization workflows. A configurable web interface for data owners, business users and IT administrators automates data access requests, owner and IT authorization of changes, automated entitlement reviews and business data policy automation (e.g. ethical walls). A complete audit trail ensures that data governance policies are in place and being adhered to.

 

Varonis DataPrivilege provides:

 

Automate Entitlement Reviews

  • DataPrivilege automates the entitlement review process by providing reviews directly to data owners using intelligence generated by Varonis DatAdvantage. Data owners can review current access controls and approve or deny the recommendations made by DatAdvantage from a convenient web-based interface without any IT involvement. Reviews can be scheduled based on business policy to take place at different intervals based on the needs of the business. Users and groups outside of the data owner’s purview (e.g. administrative groups) may be hidden so that the reviews provide data owners with only actionable information.

Accountability and Continuous Audit:

  • Because some data is extremely sensitive or may fall under strict regulations for handling, it is often necessary that data authorizations be reviewed and approved by third parties, such as legal or financial groups, compliance officers or executive staff. DataPrivilege authorization review makes it possible to establish additional sets of controls via tiers of data reviewers and authorizers, further ensuring accountability and transparency. Authorizations, entitlement reviews and other management reports provide evidence that policies are being properly adhered to.

Reduction In It Burden:

  • By shifting responsibility for data entitlement management to the data business owners, IT is able to conserve resources. The result is nearly immediate return on investment to organizations deploying Varonis DataPrivilege. The cost savings are further augmented by gains in the speed and efficiency with which data access requests are fulfilled. Most importantly, organizations are able to establish an enterprise capable system of data governance by which the parties accountable for data use are directly involved in its governance. This ensures that access controls to data are accurate, timely and properly aligned with business policy. The net result is increased IT efficiency and effectiveness, and significant reduction in risk.

Configurable Interface:

  • Administration of DataPrivilege is efficient and configuration is transparent. The entire DataPrivilege interface is configurable through the interface itself—everything from the look and feel of the web pages to thestructure, the content of the emails DataPrivilege sends, and advanced application permissions for different types of users.

Data Transport Engine

Varonis_Transport

The Varonis Data Transport Engine (DTE) automates all the heavy lifting : copying data and metadata while adhering to maintenance windows and other scheduling constraints, automatically synchronizing source and destination with incremental copies even if the source data is still in use, translating permissions across platforms and domains, and reporting on progress every step of the way.

 

Varonis Data Transport Engine provides:

  • Find data based on Metadata

  • Move it or delete it automatically

  • Automatically handles cross-platform and cross-domain moves

  • Automatically implements simulations and recommendations if desired

With Varonis Data Transport Engine, IT needs only configure their migration criteria and intelligent automation will take care of all the scary details. Say goodbye to the weekend-shifts and all-nighters— just describe your ideal migration, simulate it to make sure it’s what you want, and automation will make it happen quickly, effectively and securely.

With a choice between manual processes and primitive utilities, migrating and archiving data has long been a time-consuming nightmare for IT. We have always been able to describe quite clearly what we want to happen during a migration, but ensuring that what we want to happen actually does happen has always required massive amounts of planning, testing, tweaking, verifying, and fingercrossing.

By harnessing file system, permissions, access activity, and content metadata across UNIX and Windows file shares, SharePoint, and Exchange Mailboxes and public folders, the Varonis Metadata Framework provides critical intelligence to make data migrations more efficient and more secure, such as which data is active or stale, which content may be sensitive or regulated, and which permissions may be excessive or broken.

Because DTE is built on top of the Varonis metadata framework, you can make sure that all data is managed and protected, where only the right people have access, all use is monitored, and abuse is flagged—before and after a move. You’ll know which users are happily using your new server or platform to collaborate with their data, and which ones haven’t read the memo.

With the Varonis Data Transport Engine, IT finally has an intelligent system that can be told what an ideal migration looks like, and it will take care of all the scary details for you. Say goodbye to the weekend shifts and all-nighters. Just describe your ideal migration, simulate it before committing, and automation will make it happen quickly and securely.

Varonis Data Transport Engine : Painless archiving, disposition, and migration. Create rules to automatically migrate, archive, or delete files based on contents, size, age, access, activity, and more. (Varonis - Data Transport Engine) - DATASHEET
