Varonis Unveils Solution to Enable Secure Enterprise Search of Human-Generated Data Files

Varonis Systems, a provider of software solutions for unstructured, human-generated enterprise data, has announced that DatAnswers, a new solution for secure, relevant search for NAS, Windows file servers and SharePoint, will be available as a beta release in late May, with general availability later this year.

According to the company, DatAnswers sits on top of and extends the Varonis Metadata Framework, and because it understands the relationships between employees and files, and knows who is regularly accessing what content, it can refine its search results to be even more effective over time as more metadata is collected.

Varonis DatAnswers also secures enterprise search, only displaying files the user is authorized to access based on his or her access rights, or permissions, and also filtering out files that contain PII (personally identifiable information) and other regulated content (such as HIPAA or Sarbanes-Oxley-regulated data) as identified by the Varonis IDU Classification Framework.

"Think of how many times you use an internet search engine every day. It is surprising that so few organizations have the same functionality for their own file systems,” said Yaki Faitelson, Varonis CEO and co-founder. “DatAnswers will provide their employees broader, faster access to the right documents and files that can save time and speed up decision-making."
