Varonis Enhances DatAdvantage

NEW YORK -- Varonis Systems Inc., the foremost innovator and provider of comprehensive, actionable data governance solutions, today introduced DatAdvantage 3.0. This software-based system automates control of user-to-data access by computing and recommending access privileges based on business need. New features in DatAdvantage 3.0 include advanced search capabilities, enhanced scalability and more out-of-box reporting and auditing.

Most organizations can’t easily identify ownership, lineage and usage patterns of their critical data,” said Ted Friedman, research vice president at Gartner Inc. “Answers to questions like these need to be on hand for every audit and for ongoing data governance activities. These are very difficult questions to answer, both in the structured data world, but also for less-structured information. Companies know they must control the rightful use of data of all types, and seek approaches that offer greater visibility and control.”

The latest version of DatAdvantage offers significant enhancements in search, scalability and reporting. Key enhancements include:

Advanced Search

DatAdvantage provides users with an extremely granular audit record of user-to-data access activity. This record greatly expedites auditing, allowing IT operations personnel to conduct a data access analysis by filtering information based on individual or data set of interest and by a given action, time of day or IP address. Greatly expanded search capabilities now allow multiple conditions to be defined for a single inquiry. For instance, administrators can conduct a search to see all files deleted by a given user within sensitive data folders for a given point in time.
