Varonis DatAdvantage Delivers Vital Intelligence to Keep ING DIRECT Secure
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 03/11/14 -- Varonis Systems, Inc.
(NASDAQ: VRNS), a provider of software solutions for unstructured,
human-generated enterprise data, today revealed details of how it has
helped ING DIRECT ensure its systems are secure and that customers'
interests are protected at all times. Using Varonis DatAdvantage, the
bank is able to monitor who is accessing and changing records to
guarantee that all actions are authorized. It also allows ING DIRECT
to visualize and manage permissions, which helps to meet regulatory
DatAdvantage details each time critical files are changed or
modified, at what time and by whom, as Kash Sharma, Identity
Management for ING DIRECT, explains, "Being a bank, we monitor
practically everything an individual does on our network. For
example, we have payments that are scheduled to be sent overnight to
other banks and financial institutions. There is a cut-off point when
these files are no longer allowed to be modified. DatAdvantage allows
us to schedule and circulate a report that details each time the
files are changed or modified, at what time, and by whom. Someone
then manually checks the reports to make sure that everything has
been authorized and conducted correctly and that none have been
tampered or interfered with."
In addition, DatAdvantage is invaluable to ING DIRECT's access
provisioning. Previously, each folder's permissions had to be
examined individually -- a time consuming process. With its
bi-directional view of permissions, DatAdvantage quickly maps all
groups and users to the data they're able to access. This allows ING
DIRECT to visualize and manage its permissions from a single
interface. Kash adds, "The system access administrators use
DatAdvantage on a daily basis to check permissions and usage on all
our folders, and easily simulate and execute any clean ups that they
need to, based on its recommendations."
With strict regulation requirements imposed on the financial sector,
DatAdvantage helps ING DIRECT meet some of its compliance
obligations. Kash concludes, "Varonis gives us the monitoring view
that we lacked previously -- in terms of regulation, on a file server
level. It's even helping the IT operation team troubleshoot as they
can see if there have been any permissions changed, especially if
they've caused a problem, and can identify what it was and then work
backwards from there to fix the issue."
