Varonis Data Security Platform Case Study

Non-Profit Gains Complete Visibility Into GDPR Sensitive Data and User Access with the Varonis Data Security Platform

Introduction

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

“The Varonis Data Security Platform gives visibility into our unstructured data locations, who has access and how it is being used. Using this with appropriate policies will allow us to gain full oversight for GDPR.”

Challenges

The business challenges that led the profiled organization to evaluate and ultimately select Varonis Data Security Platform (DSP):

  • Unable to locate personal data within files across the network
  • Unable to guarantee a least privilege access model against personal data
  • Unable to determine who accessed personal data and if they abused that access
  • Unable to conduct regular data protection impact assessments

Use Case

While complying with GDPR was not the primary reason for selecting the Varonis DSP, the solution will help meet the new regulation.

Results

The Non-Profit Organization uses the Varonis DSP to do the following:

  • 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
  • Quickly locate data that is no longer necessary or asked to be removed
  • Quarantine, delete or relocate stale or misplaced personal data
  • Conveniently conduct regular data protection impact assessments
