Serves as a central repository where you can see all of your file servers from the GUI but calculations can be slow and require time to process
The most valuable feature, in my opinion, is that it serves as a central repository where you can see all of your file servers from the GUI. There are two interfaces: the web version and the graphical user interface (GUI) available on local machines. Another valuable feature is the ability to easily apply restrictions through Varonis, without having to manually configure permissions on individual servers. You can remotely register, block, or enable server or file permissions from one central location. This can be done in bulk as well. I also appreciate the reporting feature, which allows for the extraction of various reports based on specific needs. These reports can be used for audit purposes, such as tracking changes in file locations or deletions. Additionally, Varonis offers data classification capabilities. You can manually create classifications and categorize data accordingly. After a short processing time, you have visibility into where specific types of data are located. There are many other aspects of Varonis worth mentioning, as I learn something new about it every day. However, I have now transitioned to the Microsoft platform and primarily work with Power BI, so my Varonis usage is limited these days.

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"The product is flexible."
"The product provides visibility to manage sensitive data and control access."
"There's also a 90-day policy where if a user is not using the warehouse, it will automatically delete that username."
"I also appreciate the reporting feature, which allows for the extraction of various reports based on specific needs. These reports can be used for audit purposes, such as tracking changes in file locations or deletions."
"The solution ensures that users have not accidentally shared sensitive information with the wrong people or too many people."
"Varonis Platform is transparent and captures everything in the environment without impacting the performance. The tool helps us unify data feeds into a single reporting system."
"The solution has significantly improved data security and compliance posture by allowing us to track and monitor activities. We can see who accesses data and when files are created and understand what's happening in our environment."
 

Cons

"I rate the pricing a seven out of ten. The pricing is moderate."

"One area for improvement is the calculation engine. When applying rules in Varonis, especially for large datasets (terabytes of data), the calculations can be slow and require time to process. Speeding up this process would be beneficial."

"The product is very complicated."
"The solution's interface is a little complicated with regard to setting up filters and reports."
