New capabilities deliver accurate, scalable data classification for S3 buckets to help organizations slash sensitive data exposure

Varonis Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: VRNS), a pioneer in data security and analytics, announced new features to improve security and boost data visibility in Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3).

These enhancements are part of DatAdvantage Cloud, which gives customers a single pane of glass to protect critical data across their IaaS and SaaS ecosystem.
Data breaches stemming from misconfigured, publicly visible S3 buckets are common. Amazon Web Services (AWS) permissions are complex, difficult to manage, and change by the second. For organisations with sensitive information in S3, Varonis provides a continuous, real-time pulse on sensitive data risk. Varonis for AWS supports a wide variety of cybersecurity and compliance use cases by delivering unprecedented data visibility and security at scale:

Discover and classify sensitive data stored in S3 buckets: Automatically discover where sensitive and regulated data exists in your AWS S3 buckets.
Prevent data exposure in AWS: Easily see where sensitive data is exposed to too many users — including external users — and effectively limit excessive access.
Pinpoint AWS misconfigurations: Detect organisation-wide settings issues and spot vulnerabilities that put your organisation at risk.
Detect and investigate threats in AWS: Get alerts on suspicious user behaviour, such as excessive bucket deletions or MFA deactivation.

"Companies turn to AWS and Amazon S3 for scalability and performance, but it's up to every organisation to ensure their data is secure there," said David Bass, Executive VP of Engineering and Chief Technology Officer, Varonis.

"Varonis for AWS augments native security capabilities by boosting visibility into where data is at risk and helping to reduce exposure proactively."

Varonis is a member of the Amazon Web Services Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Accelerate Program, a co-sell program for organisations that provide software solutions that run on or integrate with AWS. In addition to Amazon S3, Varonis provides visibility into user access and permissions of other critical AWS resources, including AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), while monitoring for suspicious activity that could put cloud data at risk.
