Last month, Varonis Systems Inc., a data governance solutions provider, was selected as a “Cool Vendor” in the March 2009 “Cool Vendors in Risk Management and Compliance, 2009” report by research company, Gartner Inc.
According to Varonis’ announcement,
“Varonis’ Data Governance Suite provides IT administrators and data owners with the intelligence they need to control access to valuable business data by enabling complete visibility to all file and folder access. The software automatically builds permissions management workflow policies by generating recommendations about whose access to company data should be revoked or allowed, empowering data owners to sign off on access rights to their files and mitigate the risks of data misuse. Varonis allows organizations to ensure that data is only being accessed by those with business need – something that proves to be critical as companies increasingly seek data protection to prevent insider breaches or data loss.”
The news from earlier today about the MySpace data breach is a good reminder of how important and necessary data governance solutions such as what’s offered Varonis and other companies still are.
