Varonis Data Security Platform Case Study

Medium Enterprise Transportation Services Company Easily Finds and Flags GDPR Sensitive Data

Introduction

This case study of a medium enterprise transportation services 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.

“Varonis has provided us with data classification on our unstructured user files.”

Challenges

In regards to meeting GDPR compliance, the Transportation Services Company had no concerns because they have been a longtime user of the Varonis Data Security Platform (DSP) to identify, lock down and/or remove unneeded personal data.

Use Case

Meeting GDPR compliance was not the primary reason for selecting Varonis, but the solution will help meet the new regulation.

Results

With the Varonis DSP, the Company expects to be able to meet GDPR, specifically in the following areas:

  • Ensure a least privilege access model against personal data
