NEW YORK, Dec. 2, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Varonis Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:VRNS), the leading provider of software solutions for unstructured, human-generated enterprise data, today announced the upcoming compatibility of its Varonis Metadata Framework platform with Microsoft Office 365 Services for Enterprise.

Varonis has helped thousands of customers manage, protect and get more out of their unstructured data in on-premise IT infrastructures. In 2015, Varonis will begin to extend its core Metadata Framework to offer permissions visibility and auditing for Microsoft Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive, and Active Directory for Office 365, hosted in Azure, Microsoft's cloud platform. Office 365 is Microsoft's cloud-based service offerings for its widely used applications, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, enabling businesses to augment existing systems with software and storage in the cloud.
Yaki Faitelson, Varonis Co-Founder and CEO, said, "The Metadata Framework, our core platform for delivering innovation through a growing range of products, has proven to be very agile, adding support for platform after platform. By using Varonis software with Office 365, anyone can harness the experience and flexibility of Microsoft's cloud offerings with the added productivity and security benefits that Varonis solutions provide. As the cloud becomes more mainstream and more organizations give serious consideration to the evolution of their IT strategies, the Varonis Metadata Framework will prove to be a very smart investment."
