Varonis Introduces DatAdvantage Cloud to Bring Data-Centric Security to Additional Mission-Critical Cloud Services


NEW YORK, May 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Varonis Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: VRNS) announces support for additional cloud applications and infrastructure through DatAdvantage Cloud, a solution that visualizes and prioritizes security risk across today's mission-critical SaaS applications and cloud data stores.

"We have seen tremendous momentum supporting Microsoft 365 and Azure, and with the acquisition of Polyrize in October 2020, we committed to bringing Varonis' proven approach to additional SaaS applications -- we're now delivering on that promise," says Yaki Faitelson, Varonis CEO.

As companies boost their reliance on cloud services, securing sensitive data against cyberattacks and accidental overexposure becomes exponentially more complex. Each service has its own data types, permissions models, and activity log formats.

DatAdvantage Cloud correlates identities with privileges and activities across cloud stores, including AWS, Box, GitHub, Google Drive, Jira, Okta, Salesforce, Slack, and Zoom. Organizations can see and prioritize their biggest cloud risks, proactively reduce their blast radius, and conduct faster cross-cloud inestigations.



DatAdvantage Cloud maps, analyzes, and normalizes relationships between users and data so you can easily answer critical security and compliance questions like: "Which sensitive files containing PII are exposed via sharing links?" or "Which external users have granted permissions in any of our SaaS apps?"

For each covered platform, DatAdvantage Cloud provides these key features and benefits:


  • Remediate SaaS/IaaS data exposure. Get a clear view of permissions across your cloud services with recommendations to eliminate excessive, inappropriate, or unused privileges.
  • Alert on suspicious activity and policy violations. Prevent cloud account takeovers, insider threats, and inadvertent policy violations with cross-cloud auditing and alerting.
  • Conduct fast cross-cloud threat investigations. Normalize and enrich cloud events to allow security analysts to investigate incidents cross-cloud without having to craft complex, service-specific queries.
  • Connect cross-cloud identities. Automatically link accounts across disparate cloud services—including personal accounts—to form a single identity. Easily uncover over-privileged shadow identities—human and non-human.
  • Cloud-native deployment. Simply point DatAdvantage Cloud at your existing cloud services and identity providers without any complex architecture changes or proxies.
