Varonis Integration With EMC Isilon Enables New Levels of Visibility, Intelligence and Business-Critical Compliance for Scale-Out NAS Environments

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 30, 2013) - Varonis Systems, Inc., a provider of software solutions for unstructured, human-generated enterprise data, today announced integration with EMC Corporation's Isilon® scale-out NAS storage, enabling organizations to achieve new levels of visibility, intelligence and control of their rapidly growing volumes of unstructured data. The integration utilizes Varonis software with the Isilon family of storage systems to deliver enterprise-class features in a cost-effective package.

"With the explosive growth of unstructured data that organizations are experiencing, outdated, manual data management and protection processes can leave them unable to determine who has access, who is accessing, who should have access, where sensitive data resides, and to whom data belongs," said David Gibson, VP of Marketing at Varonis. "Varonis' unique metadata framework provides Isilon scale-out NAS storage with the capability to address the urgent need for business-critical compliance and unprecedented levels of governance, access and retention within an enterprise-class storage system."

According to IDC, the amount of data stored by organizations will grow by a factor of 14 by 2020. The Isilon and Varonis integrated solution provides organizations with control over the files stored, including better visibility into permissions, detailed recommendations into where access can be reduced as well as risk assessments of critical data, and identification and involvement of data owners on remediation efforts.

"With the dramatic rise we've seen in the amount of unstructured data in recent years, transparency into who is using it and who it belongs to are essential components of big data storage and management," said Sam Grocott, EMC Vice President, Isilon Marketing & Product Management. "The integration of Varonis with Isilon scale-out NAS storage provides organizations with control over, and the insight into, their data in order to effectively derive more value from it while also managing and protecting it. We're excited to offer customers with these capabilities."

The Varonis solution has been integrated with the Isilon OneFS® 7.1 operating system to provide the auditing and compliance reporting required by regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPAA. These new integrated audit capabilities are simple to deploy, manage and scale, and provide excellent efficiency and resiliency. The integrated solution simplifies the auditing process while providing the ongoing storage performance and reliability required by global enterprises.

The Varonis® Metadata Framework™ non-intrusively collects critical metadata, generates metadata where existing metadata is lacking, pre-processes it, normalizes it, analyzes it, stores it, and presents it to IT administrators and business owners in an interactive, dynamic interface. Once data owners are identified, they are empowered to make informed authorization and permissions maintenance decisions -- through a web-based interface -- that are then executed with no IT overhead or manual back end processes.
