Varonis Announces Interoperability with RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle

Interoperability enables detection and mitigation of security risks by providing centralized management and control of sensitive data

NEW YORK, Sept. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Varonis Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: VRNS), a pioneer in data security and analytics, announces interoperability between Varonis DataPrivilege with RSA® Identity Governance and Lifecycle. The interoperability combines the ease of data access governance from DataPrivilege with the Identity and Access Management (IAM) alignment of RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle, delivering a solution to help joint customers secure sensitive unstructured data, address compliance requirements and reduce risk.

In a recent report, Varonis found that, on average, 58% of companies have more than 100,000 folders open to everyone -- placing sensitive data at risk from cyberattacks and data breaches. Regulations such as GDPR, PCI, HIPAA, and others place the burden on companies to manage and secure sensitive data to a least-privilege model. Issues such as access creep, malfunctioning permissions, “ghost” users and other problems must be resolved to achieve maximum benefit from an IAM solution.

How it Works
The Varonis Data Security Platform helps prepare enterprise data for RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle by finding data owners, correcting inconsistent permissions, removing global security groups, and simplifying and maintaining permissions structures.

Companies that implement Varonis DataPrivilege interoperability with RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle benefit from:

  • Enhanced visibility and control of unstructured file systems directly within RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle;
  • Meeting access control policies by helping to ensure that users have appropriate access permissions;
  • Reducing attack surfaces and assisting with compliance by limiting access privileges and deactivating stale/orphaned accounts; and
  • Automating attestations, provisioning and de-provisioning of access permissions.

“Companies often lack insight on how users and groups map to permissions – yet this understanding is critical for achieving the full benefits from your IAM investment,” said Varonis CMO David Gibson. “The technical interoperability with RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle and Varonis DataPrivilege will help joint customers derive more value from their IAM by adding visibility into their data environments – mapping users, data owners, access permissions and more.”  

“Controlling unstructured data has become a critical objective for many organizations, as they realize that information can often be as valuable as currency and may put them at risk,” said Stephen Mowll, Director of Product Management, RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle. “With regulations and threats from both internal and external actors, data must be subject to the same controls as any other asset: it must have an identified owner or steward, standardized access controls, access records, and reporting on these components. With this interoperability, RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle and Varonis customers can gain greater control of their sensitive data.”
