NEW YORK, May 21, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Varonis Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:VRNS), the leading provider of software solutions for unstructured enterprise data, will be showcasing next week at the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit how its innovative solutions are enabling companies to turn security inside-out and greatly minimize risk. The event will take place June 8-11 in National Harbor, Maryland.
In addition to meeting the Varonis team on site, attendees of the Gartner Security & Risk Summit will be able to learn about how Varonis solutions are raising the bar for data security by protecting companies' most sensitive and valuable files from the inside – where employees usually have too much access and where outsiders end up far too often. Specifically, Varonis solutions protect and manage an enterprise's human-generated data, which is comprised of the emails, word documents, spreadsheets, presentations, images, audio, and video files that are created and shared every day. This is one of the most valuable and fastest-growing data sets and it is often poorly managed.
David Gibson, Varonis Vice President, said, "Cyber criminals are getting good, excellent even, at their jobs. And while business data is growing exponentially, so much of it containing sensitive information, companies are struggling to secure it. In fact, a study we conducted with The Ponemon Institute found that 71% of employees currently have access to sensitive data they don't need. Over the last year we have been working hard on a number of exciting new features and enhancements across our solution line to help enterprises easily classify, audit, share, search, and lock down this data to proactively protect against potential internal or external breaches. We're looking forward to sharing our latest updates with Gartner Summit attendees."
Varonis solutions enable IT departments to ensure that the right people have access to only the data they need, the right people are in charge, all use is monitored, and abuse is flagged. Solutions are built on the company's patented Metadata Framework, which intelligently and non-intrusively collects and analyzes metadata from customers' vast, distributed unstructured data stores. This added insight not only provides IT with the ability to better secure the data, but to also ensure that end users have access to the files and documents they need in order to tap into the company's institutional memory and derive additional value.
