Varonis Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:VRNS), the leading provider of software solutions for unstructured, human-generated enterprise data, today announced the interoperability of its DatAdvantage and DatAlert solutions with the FireEye® Threat Analytics Platform™ (TAP™).
The interoperable solutions from this new technology alliance will be showcased at the FireEye Cyber Defense Summit, taking place October 12-14 at the Washington Hilton in Washington, DC, and via a live webinar at 2:00 PM ET on October 28. (For more details see below, or click here.)
Protecting the Most Valuable Data
With the interoperability of Varonis and FireEye TAP, customers can now gain unprecedented intelligence in the realm of unstructured data. Organisations store massive quantities of this 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 unstructured data, through analysing user activity with files and emails, permissions and file system metadata, as well as file content.
Gareth Maclachlan, FireEye Vice President Product Management said, “FireEye’s Threat Analytics Platform accelerates detection and investigation of cyber-attacks by correlating events from a wide range of devices and locations and applying threat intelligence to pinpoint critical threats— including the hunt for threat indicators within unstructured data sources. By integrating with FireEye to identify anomalous data activity, Varonis is providing its customers with valuable insight into the security of their high value information.”
Users will now be able to easily send alerts from Varonis DatAdvantage and DatAlert into FireEye TAP, and begin identifying statistically unusual user behavior surrounding this data. Anomalous activity could include 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 one hour, and connection to FireEye TAP is as simple as configuring an IP address.
David Gibson, Varonis Vice President of Strategy and Market Development, said, “Hackers are getting better at their jobs, and therefore today’s threat intelligence equation needs to combine several technologies. With the new interoperability, customers can combine critical security insight from FireEye with Varonis intelligence about their unstructured data – the type of data they typically have the most of and know the least about. Varonis and FireEye TAP can help organisations proactively spot the warning signs before they end up in the news because of a data breach.”
