Varonis announced the availability of least privilege automation for Microsoft 365, Google Drive, and Box — a new capability that automatically removes unnecessary data risk without the need for human intervention.
Jim Reavis, CEO, Cloud Security Alliance commented, “When excessive data access goes unchecked, a single compromised user or rogue insider can inflict untold damage on a business.
Reducing the data blast radius is a top priority for CISOs, but manual remediation isn’t possible with today’s pace of data growth and collaboration.”
Varonis’ goal to provide customers with effortless data security outcomes is furthered by this innovation.
Varonis’ cloud-native platform, in contrast to other approaches that are all-or-nothing, determines who needs access to data and who doesn’t based on usage, data sensitivity, and exposure.
Because least privilege automation consistently upholds them without hindering collaboration, organizations can tailor remediation policies to meet their security and compliance requirements.
David Bass, CTO of Varonis stated, “With the launch of our new SaaS platform, our mission is to solve our customers’ critical data security challenges with automation — and that starts by ending excessive data access with the industry’s first fully autonomous remediation engine.
We offer the only scalable way to eliminate collaboration risk and continually keep data exposure low across today’s most critical data stores.”
More than 40 million unique permissions and 157,000 sensitive records are available online in the cloud environment of the typical business. By eliminating the public and organizational exposure caused by sharing links and unused entitlements, least privilege automation eliminates collaboration risk.
