Varonis Data Security Platform Case Study

Large Enterprise Health Care Company


This case study of a large enterprise health care company is based on a May 2017 survey of Varonis Data Security Platform customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service. The profiled company asked to have their name blinded to protect their confidentiality.


Prior to using the Varonis Data Security Platform (DSP), this large Health Care Company had the following concerns meeting the new GDPR requirements:

  • Unable to locate personal data within files across the network
  • Unable to determine who accessed personal data and if they abused that access
  • Unable to determine when personal data is no longer necessary
  • Unable to satisfy the right to be forgotten rule
  • Unable to determine if a breach happened

Use Case

The Health Care Company has been using Varonis long before the GDPR were drafted, but they are confident it will help meet the new regulation.


The surveyed company achieved the following results preparing for GDPR with the Varonis DSP:

  • Confidently locate personal data within files across the network
  • Ensure a least privilege access model against personal data
  • Easily monitor access to this data and alert on abuse
  • Quarantine, delete or relocate stale or misplaced personal data

Since switching to the Varonis DSP, the Health Care Company saves 1-5 hours per week finding user access and applying a least privilege model.
