NEW YORK, Feb. 17, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Varonis Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:VRNS), the leading provider of software solutions for unstructured, human-generated enterprise data, today announced important enhancements and new capabilities for Varonis DatAdvantageVaronis DataPrivilege, and the Varonis IDU Classification Framework.

With the release of version 6.0.80 of the industry-leading Varonis Metadata Framework platform and the expansion of IDU Classification Framework to Linux and UNIX environments, Varonis continues to raise the bar in enabling organizations of all sizes to analyze, protect, manage and share their rapidly growing volumes of unstructured data.

The new features are as follows:

  • IDU Classification Framework for Linux/UNIX: Users will be able to find and classify data that is sensitive, regulated or of value that they store on Linux or UNIX servers and UNIX-accessible NAS devices. Finding and locking down overexposed sensitive information helps avoid costly and damaging data breaches.
  • IDU Classification Framework: Users will have improved granularity in defining patterns, excluding lists, negative look ahead and look behind, and improvements to existing patterns.
  • DatAdvantage: With the new statistics interface capabilities and reports on employee file and email activity to enhance security, IT operations and business intelligence, customers can now filter, view and report on activity with more granularity. Ensuring that only the right people have access to the right data at all times, monitoring use and alerting on abuse are critical capabilities in today's world.
  • DataPrivilege: New workflow capabilities allow business users to collaborate more quickly by creating new folders that are automatically provisioned, permissioned correctly and then managed by business data owners without requiring IT's assistance.

Yaki Faitelson, Varonis Co-Founder and CEO, said, "Over the past decade, Varonis has defined and continually advanced the standards for the way organizations secure, manage and take advantage of their rapidly expanding human-generated data. Rarely does a week pass without headlines of the latest damaging data breach, not only targeting financial information but also sensitive data and intellectual property. These breaches can meaningfully disrupt business, and in almost every case the companies victimized have failed to implement fundamental solutions that would have prevented or minimized the damage. At the same time, rarely does a day pass for a typical employee without struggling to find, access or share data they need to do their job. It is unacceptable that attackers can more easily search out and extract intellectual property than trusted employees. It is becoming increasingly clear that organizations cannot reverse or even slow this trend - one that threatens their ability to conduct business -- without having Varonis as a core component of their infrastructure."
