ELSEN Logistics & More Keeps Its Flow of Sensitive Data Secure With Varonis DatAdvantage

NEW YORK, Aug. 31, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ELSEN Group, a German logistics and personnel service provider, sought out a transparent solution with a single interface to help it manage file permissions and security groups. The company's file shares had grown significantly over time, making it difficult to trace which employees were accessing data - and had permission to access what data - across its many departments.

An enormous amount of data was being created every day in the company's file shares. Permissions grew complex over time and were not transparent: Who holds which permissions? Are the permissions correct and have they been assigned to the respective departments in a logical way? Is it possible that permissions have been granted twice, and if yes, where?

Within a month of implementing DatAdvantage from Varonis Systems Inc. (Nasdaq:VRNS), the leading provider of software solutions for unstructured, human-generated enterprise data, ELSEN's IT department was convinced of the solution's capability and reliability to help them easily eliminate excess employee access and get better insight into the security of their data.

Easily Eliminate Unnecessary Access

According to ELSEN's IT department, "Similar to other companies of our size, file systems have grown over the course of the years. Permissions are easy to grant but difficult to trace. We had been planning to completely reorganize the existing folder structure on our file server for some time now, and we also wanted a solution to help us with permissions management. After meeting with two possible providers at CeBIT and seeing what they had to offer, it quickly became clear that only Varonis DatAdvantage could give us full visibility and control over our unstructured data, wherever it lives."

With Varonis DatAdvantage, ELSEN Logistics now has a bi-directional view of permissions and user activity, a meaningful permissions management structure, and data audits all from one simple and easy-to-use interface.

Reduced Risk

DatAdvantage's reporting system also equips ELSEN Logistics' IT team with valuable analysis and forecast data, enabling the company to better assess the current situation and also prepare for potential security threats. Based on the information that has been identified, the solution also prepares suggestions as to which data should be stored in security groups.

"DatAdvantage saves us a lot of time and provides us with insight as to how we can optimize the permissions structure and where potentially at-risk or stale data may be hiding. This has significantly improved the quality of our file management activities and overall our data is better protected against data breaches," ELSEN's IT team explained.
