NEW YORK, Feb. 24, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Varonis Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:VRNS), a leading provider of software solutions that protect data from insider threats and cyberattacks, today announced the interoperability of its DatAdvantage and DatAlert solutions with the LogRhythm Security Intelligence Platform.
Protecting the Most Valuable Data
With the interoperability of Varonis and LogRhythm, customers can now gain unprecedented intelligence in their file systems and vast stores of unstructured data. Organizations store massive quantities of unstructured data – such as files, emails, spreadsheets, and presentations – and it comprises some of their most valuable and sensitive information assets. These assets are frequently exposed or stolen in high-profile breaches, either by insiders who abuse their access or by outsiders who compromise insiders’ credentials. Varonis has helped thousands of customers protect their file systems and unstructured data stores through analyzing user and data activity, permissions and file system metadata, and file content.
Matthew Winter, LogRhythm Vice President of Corporate and Business Development said, “Visibility into user activity surrounding unstructured data is critically important to enabling the rapid detection of and response to potentially harmful threats and incidents. By combining dynamic user activity telemetry from Varonis with the petabytes of other machine data LogRhythm collects and analyzes from across the distributed environment, our joint customers can optimally detect user-based threats before they result in high-impact incidents or data breaches.”
Varonis can automatically send alerts from Varonis DatAdvantage and DatAlert into LogRhythm Security Intelligence Platform and thereby increase the speed and accuracy with which customers are able to identify, prioritize and investigate unusual user behavior surrounding unstructured data. Anomalous activity spotted by Varonis analytics includes unusual access to sensitive and stale data, mass deletions and modifications, malware and ransomware infections like CryptoLocker and Cryptowall, privilege escalations, unusual access to PII, multiple failed login attempts, and many more potential warning signs. Installation of Varonis DatAdvantage and DatAlert can take as little as an hour, and integration with LogRhythm is as simple as configuring an IP address.
David Gibson, Varonis Vice President of Strategy and Market Development said, “Insiders threats can be devastating and hackers are getting better at becoming insiders through phishing and other vectors. With the new interoperability, customers can combine critical security insight from LogRhythm with Varonis intelligence about file systems and unstructured data – the type of data they typically have the most of and know the least about. Varonis and LogRhythm can help organizations proactively spot the warning signs before they end up in the news because of a data breach.”
