Dutch lender Rabobank has selected Varonis Systems’ DatAdvantage for Windows and DatAdvantage for SharePoint solutions to control its data access and permissions as well as offer regulatory compliance.
The solutions have been designed to offer full visibility into data ownership, full control over permissions management. This helps ensure that right people have access to the right data at all times, with access being monitored and abuse flagged.
Rabobank technical engineer Sebastiaan van Putten said: "With all kinds of sensitive, unstructured data mixed up in one location, we needed to determine who initiated this data, who was responsible for this data, who was using it, and which user should and shouldn’t have access.
"Varonis DatAdvantage provides us with actionable intelligence on which excess file permissions and group memberships can be safely removed without affecting business processes."
DatAdvantage helps track and monitors file activity, evaluate user behaviour, report on all activity happening on file servers, as well as makes permissions management straightforward, making it easier for the bank to see who’s doing what.
DatAdvantage can also help Rabobank identify and govern who owns and can access which data, and receive alerts and reports that adhere to all regional compliance norms.
"Varonis DatAdvantage has greatly helped us identify owners of unstructured data because of its bi-directional view on permissions ? all necessary information like groups, users, and folders are available. DatAdvantage presents this data in a useful way so that we can easily share the results with the business and determine the best way to organise and control our unstructured data," van Putten added.
