When asked “Which DLP vendors are you considering for your data protection project?” four responses were by far the most common: three very large, broadly focused companies (Symantec, McAfee/Intel Security Group and Microsoft) along with Varonis, the focused pioneer of unstructured data management and protection.

In the survey of 4,635 readers, the most important drivers for future data protection projects were “Meeting compliance/audit requirements" (69%), "Attempting to avoid future data breach" (53%), and "Protection of intellectual property" (46%).

Varonis solutions are unique as we combine DLP capabilities with permissions context and what we believe are the most advanced user behavior analytics available to help organizations protect their file systems and unstructured data from insider threats.”
