NEW YORK, NY- With the world moving towards a data-oriented workflow, data threats and protection of the same from being rendered for unscrupulous activities is a chief concern for most of the enterprises. To address the same, Varonis Systems announced the beta availability of a unique array of predictive threat models which can be leveraged to analyze and detect everything from insider threats and outsider attacks to CryptoLocker infections and suspicious behavior.

With the introduction of Version 6.2.5 of Varonis Metadata Framework platform, major enhancements have been incorporated in Varonis DatAlert, a widely recognized solution service for auditing unstructured data. This type of data is usually the most valuable and sensitive data-types and also very threat-prone. The capabilities integrated in the revamped version include the most sophisticated analytics and predictive threat models. Organizations are now able to solve data breach issues and address glitches caused by undetected insider access and behavior, such as compromise of privileged accounts and privilege abuse.

The state-of-the-art capabilities incorporated in this version  includes a number of new automated threat models for Varonis DatAlert which provides advanced behavioral alerts on access anomalies and suspicious activity. It establishes a baseline of behavior by analyzing metadata and automatically discovering critical assets, noteworthy people and normal activity. But the key focus still lies in the ability to precisely identify unusual behavior with machine learning algorithms and behavioral threat models.

"By now it is understood that protecting the perimeter of your network can no longer be the primary focus of a comprehensive security strategy. Organizations must gather, analyze and act on real-time knowledge of the relationships between users and data. Your analysis can only be as good as the metadata you're analyzing, and Varonis has more and better metadata than any other company that deals with unstructured data,” said Yaki Faitelson, Varonis Co-Founder and CEO.
