Varonis Data Security Platform Case Study

Medium Enterprise Insurance Company

Introduction

This case study of a medium enterprise insurance 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 enables easy assessment of who accessed what data and where.”

Challenges

Prior to using the Varonis Data Security Platform (DSP), this Insurance Company was unable to determine who accessed personal data and if they abused that access- a major tenant of GDPR compliance.

With the Varonis DSP, they expect to be able to meet GDPR in the following ways:

  • Ensure a least privilege access model against personal data
