An enterprise solution must be able to enforce and improve in search filtering and indexing in order to fulfil the needs of employees, as well as gain acceptance from IT and security departments.
Recent surveys of around 300 IT security professionals at the RSA Conference in February and Infosecurity Europe in April, found that despite the employee productivity benefits that internal enterprise search could bring to any organisation, only 38 per cent of respondents have invested in or plan to invest in enterprise search capabilities.
When asked to choose the biggest obstacle to enterprise search adoption, 68 per cent cited the risk of employees locating and accessing files they should not have permission to view. Further, even if an enterprise search solution perfectly filters out results based on established permissions, the majority of respondents indicated they are not confident that their organisation’s existing permissions are accurate.
David Gibson, VP at Varonis, said, “Given the reliance consumers have on web search and the value we all derive from it, one might think that the power to easily find business documents would be equally compelling for enterprises. But there are clearly obstacles that past approaches have failed to overcome.”
Yaki Faitelson, Varonis CEO and Co-Founder, said, “Think of how many times you use an internet search engine every day. It is surprising that so few organisations have the same functionality for their own file systems. With our solution DatAnswers, we provide a cost-effective, user-friendly solution that will help employees be much more productive, and help organisations get more out of the vast intellectual capital stored in their human-generated data without introducing risk.”
