Solving the Security Storage Challenge

Whitepaper

Get actionable data classification results quickly by following the five steps outlined in this paper. We say “actionable” results because you’ll not only find sensitive data, but have the context required to remediate problems. Naturally, searching for sensitive data among your expanse of unstructured data is a process that requires automation – without automation, there’s simply no operationally efficient way to perform such tasks. The Varonis IDU Data Classification Framework is a software solution that’s optimized to address today’s large, growing and constantly changing collections of unstructured data, and makes performing these five key steps easy.

Federal Security Operations Centers (SOCs) and the ChiefInformation Security Officers (CISOs) that oversee them are facinga challenge. They typically have only days or weeks of retentionto conduct analytics and forensics on the data collected aboutthe security of their infrastructure. In the past, the short retentiontime was just an accepted limitation of the security ITinfrastructure. But now that analytics on security data is becomingnot just more available but also absolutely necessary to protectagency networks and data, retention of security-related data is arising requirement. Forensics on breaches can go back months oreven years.

Whitepaper

The media has been replete with stories, almost on a weekly basis, of  new data breaches across enterprise and government. New zero day events are discovered with regularity and the propagation of these attacks is fueled by easy access to advanced malware. These threats and others have changed our perceptions of the relativesafety afforded by our current information security strategies. Most CISO’s will admit that the perimeter cannot be defended with confidence anymore. We are now in the process of understanding not if we have been breached, but where and how.

Solution Brief

Moving security close to the data is more effective because it minimizes the potential for any surreptitious access. This security platform offers a unique approach for protecting sensitive data across the entire organization, including in databases, files, and big data nodes. By using this platform agencies are enabled to separate duties between administrators and granting access to data.  Now the security team can decide who can see the data and who cannot, not the "super-user."  The platform provides capabilities for encrypting and tokenizing data, controlling access, and creating granular security intelligence logs. These security intelligence logs can accelerate detection of advanced persistent threats (APTs) and insider abuse because they offer visibility into file access. In addition, these capabilities and logs satisfy many common compliance requirements.
