Magix Integration has announced it has obtained the rights to supply the Varonis range of data protection and preservation products. Varonis protects corporate data while making it easily available to authorised personnel. It is aimed at enterprises with several hundred users and more.
“The challenge of providing secure access to business data to only those people who need it is almost impossible to address without Varonis technology,” explains Hedley Hurwitz, MD of Magix Integration. “Magix is now able to provide all the products in the Varonis range as well as implementation, configuration and maintenance to the South African market.”
Most companies have directories located on servers and storage devices that contain sensitive, unstructured information, comprising more than 60% of the overall data in the enterprise. “Yet, this data is unprotected because IT has little to no visibility about who creates, owns and accesses this information,” adds Hurwitz.
The problem is exacerbated by the fact that this type of information is growing exponentially. Based on figures from IDC and Gartner, the average volume of unstructured data in today’s enterprise can range from 50% to 80% of all the information it stores, and this is growing at between 30% and 50% annually.
The Varonis software family solves this problem and consists of the following applications:
* DatAdvantage is the foundation product that optimises data structures by providing full visibility into corporate users’ data access permissions. It also performs a full audit of data usage, which will enable administrators to track down and investigate any actions performed on the data, red flagging excessive permissions. DatAdvantage runs on Windows, Unix, EMC/NetApp NAS and Microsoft SP platforms.
* Data Privilege allows corporations to keep the DatAdvantage-optimised structure in place by empowering the business’s data owners to set access permissions themselves instead of relying on IT staff, who do not understand the importance of the particular information.
* The Varonis Data Classification Framework (DCF) overcomes the decade-long failure of most companies to effectively and efficiently classify data. DCF provides context to the content in the form of ongoing value, usability, efficiency and scale, integrated with information about data activity, permissions and users.
“Crucial to the success of a project that secures access to data is a structured, formal, and repeatable process,” concludes Hurwitz. “The professional services approach Magix takes ensures a return on investment (ROI) within the shortest time. Magix makes a skilled and experienced team of resources available to install the Varonis solutions.”
