Varonis Joins IBM Data Governance Council

NEW YORK -- Varonis Systems Inc. (, the foremost innovator and provider of comprehensive, actionable data governance solutions, today announced it has joined the Data Governance Council. The Council, formed in 2004 by IBM and a select group of leading corporations, institutions and technology solution providers, is leading a global effort to develop a “blueprint” of common solutions for challenges that apply to security, privacy, trust and corporate compliance issues.

Data governance is the process by which companies administer appropriate access to their critical data by measuring operational risk and controlling security exposures. The Data Governance Council is working to redefine the management of data governance policy, the impact of policy on business processes and practices, and the enforcement of policy in IT infrastructure, information management and organizational behavior. Members of the Council are collaborating to identify ways in which to address these issues using IBM and business partner solutions and concepts.

“The Data Governance Council aims to address one of the biggest challenges for businesses today – managing and controlling the mountains of data that are the core of any venture,” said Steven Adler, chair of the Data Governance Council and program director of IBM Data Governance Solutions. “Varonis’ participation in the Council is welcomed.”
