Varonis Extends DatAdvantage Support to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5 Environments

Organizations Powered by Linux Now Have Comprehensive Visibility into

and Auditing of Corporate Data

NEW YORK–(EMWNews)–Varonis Systems Inc. (,

the leading innovator and provider of comprehensive data governance

software, today announced the availability of DatAdvantage version 3.7,

which extends support to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5 and provides

the foundation for Varonis to quickly add support for other Linux

distributions such as SUSE, Ubuntu, etc.

Varonis DatAdvantage is an award-winning solution that has been tested

and proven in over 600 installations worldwide. The addition of Linux

support will allow organizations that use Linux to power their file

systems to have unprecedented visibility and auditing of who can access

their file system data, as well as who is using the data. Varonis

DatAdvantage uses a unique mathematical engine to recommend which users

should have their access revoked, enabling organizations to efficiently

clean up unwarranted access to unstructured data on these file systems.

“As organizations deploy Linux as part of their business infrastructure,

they need solutions to ensure Linux file systems can be managed and

monitored along with the rest of their data infrastructure,” said Sally

Hudson, research director, security products and services, IDC. “Using

the same security principles applied to Windows and UNIX environments,

it is fundamental for organizations with a Linux environment to

safeguard, monitor and manage its mission-critical, proprietary data.

Varonis DatAdvantage version 3.7 provides a single, unified view of

unstructured data across the enterprise, including Linux, Windows and

UNIX file systems, as well as Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5 are supported in this latest version of

DatAdvantage. With version 3.7, Varonis has also architected a

foundation to enable support for other Linux distributions, with support

for additional distributions to become available in the coming months.

“Unstructured data on Linux file systems is business-critical and faces

the same challenges as data on Windows and UNIX file systems,” said Yaki

Faitelson, chief executive officer and co-founder of Varonis. As

organizations continue to deploy Linux in the data center, a data

governance framework that continuously monitors data access is essential

to ensure that only those employees with a legitimate need have access

to key business assets, preventing sensitive corporate information from

winding up in the wrong hands.

Varonis Systems recently sponsored a

Ponemon Institute study on the governance of unstructured data that

overwhelmingly revealed that businesses lack the ability to govern their

unstructured data. Inefficient, time-consuming processes have made the

task all but impossible. Varonis is the first and only company whose

products can scale efficiently and practically to control, manage and

continuously audit data use by recommending and automating who should

not have access to certain data sets. Varonis

products enable businesses to monitor unstructured data-use without

involving the IT department, instituting infrastructure changes or

disrupting business.

The award winning Varonis DatAdvantage will be on display this week in

Booth #405 at LinuxWorld Conference and Expo in San Franciscos

Moscone Center.
