Varonis | January 27, 2023
On January 26, 2023, Varonis Systems, Inc., a leader in data security and analytics, announced the availability of automated posture management to assist clients in resolving security and compliance gaps spanning their SaaS and IaaS systems.
Varonis continuously scans, identifies, and ranks cloud security threats, providing CISOs and compliance officers with real-time insight into their data security posture. With this new automation option, users can fix misconfigurations in applications such as Salesforce and AWS with a single click from a unified interface.
According to Gartner, through 2025, 99% of cloud security breaches will be the customer's fault. CIOs can counter this by adopting and enforcing rules for cloud ownership, accountability, and risk acceptance.
Varonis Field CTO, Brian Vecci, said, “Automated posture management takes the burden of understanding and remediating cloud misconfigurations off the customer.” He also said, “We stay on top of the latest configuration risks and best practices, so you don’t have to. Now, we can not only show you exactly how to improve your security posture, but we can also automatically mitigate risk on your behalf.”

This release marks a significant advancement in cloud data security. Passive data security posture management (DSPM) solutions need manual operations to generate help desk tickets for a person to review and fix in every cloud application manually. Varonis offers a uniform and automated method for minimizing the attack surface of multi-cloud environments.
Automated posture management is the most recent tool introduced by Varonis to simplify data security outcomes. Varonis introduced least privilege automation for Google Drive, Microsoft 365, and Box, as well as a new data security posture management (DSPM) dashboard early this month.
Varonis is a leader in data security and analytics, waging war differently from typical cybersecurity corporations. Instead, Varonis focuses on protecting business data like:
Sensitive files and emails
Strategic and product plans
Confidential customer, patient, and employee data
In addition to data protection, Zero Trust, data governance, compliance, categorization, data privacy, and threat detection and response, Varonis solutions handle various other critical use cases. The company began operations in 2005 and has clients in the financial services, healthcare, industrial, energy and utilities, insurance, technology, media and entertainment, consumer and retail, and education industries, among others.
