CTERA is partnering with Varonis to integrate the Varonis Data Security Platform with the CTERA Enterprise File Services Platform. The joint solution offers data classification, audit log processing, and auditing capabilities to defend sensitive data from theft, leakage, and loss. Together, CTERA and Varonis allow organisations to modernise their file services while simplifying compliance with regulations such as GDPR, SOX, and HIPAA.
The Varonis integration with CTERA enhances centralised visibility of organisational files from edge to cloud. The Varonis Data Security Platform detects and responds to threats that bypass traditional perimeter security. Machine learning algorithms automatically detect and alert on abnormal user behaviours that indicate potential compromise by threats such as ransomware and trigger responses to mitigate any possible damage.
“The continued adoption of hybrid environments created a fundamental shift in the way enterprises protect their most sensitive data,” said Hanit Fein, Senior Director of Product Management at Varonis. “Today, there is no such thing as a network perimeter, and IT and security teams must safeguard corporate information with a data-first approach. We are pleased to work with CTERA as a technology partner to provide enterprises and other organisations with a scalable security solution.”
Varonis maps out CTERA permission structures to help administrators understand where data is overexposed and begin remediation efforts. Varonis correlates data activity from CTERA into context with additional information such as data classification, authentication events, and network activity to provide a complete audit trail of user activity.
“Varonis represents the industry standard for data security and threat protection,” said Oded Nagel, Chief Strategy Officer, CTERA. “By integrating Varonis’s technology into our global file system, we offer enterprises a compelling solution to power the new working environment with secure and tightly controlled distributed file services across core, branch, and home users.”
