Varonis Provides Visibility into Data Accessed on AIX File Systems

Varonis Systems, a provider of data governance software, today announced it has extended its DatAdvantage for UNIX now supports AIX servers, allowing AIX system administrators the ability to perform automated data access and usage audits, fix and maintain access controls, identify sensitive data and find data owners.

Varonis DatAdvantage for UNIX allows customers to identify excessive permissions and abnormal access activity by showing who has access to data, who is using their access, who shouldn’t have access, who owns the data and what data is sensitive on their file systems.

As part of the platform, Varonis’ Metadata Framework non-intrusively collects critical metadata, generates metadata where existing metadata is lacking (e.g. its file system filters and content inspection technologies), preprocesses it, normalizes it, analyzes it, stores it, and presents it to IT administrators in an interactive, dynamic interface.

Information about AIX servers can be displayed within the same single user interface that also monitors information from Linux, Solaris and NFS-enabled NAS devices, offering visibility, audit trails and recommendations on where excess file permissions and group memberships can be safely removed without affecting normal business processes.

“Digital collaboration is now a business critical activity for organizations and as a result IT departments are drowning in a deluge of digital data,” said Ohad Korkus, Executive Vice President of Engineering, CTO and Co-Founder.
