New York, April 2, 2013 – Varonis, the leading provider of comprehensive data governance software, today announced that the Varonis Data Governance Suite has been named a finalist for the 2013 SIIA Software CODiE Awards for Best Big Data Solution.
"We are very pleased that the Best Big Data Solution category has been added to the prestigious CODiE Awards. Our selection as a finalist is a testament to the hard work of our engineering and product development teams, as well as to the importance of solutions for human generated big data. It's a great honor to be recognized by our peers in the industry," said Yaki Faitelson, CEO, Varonis.
The Varonis Data Governance Suite includes the patented Varonis Metadata Framework and integrated products for automated unstructured data protection and management: Varonis DatAdvantage for Windows, Exchange, Directory Services, SharePoint, UNIX/Linux; Varonis Data Transport Engine; Varonis DataPrivilege; and the Varonis IDU Classification Framework.
Without the need for Hadoop clusters or data scientists, the Varonis Metadata Framework monitors activity, content, and permissions on human generated big data, and uses sophisticated analytics to generate actionable intelligence, such as where data is at risk, recommendations on how excess permissions can be safely eliminated, and alerting on statistical aberrant user activity. A major contributing factor to Varonis’ success, especially within large enterprises, is the ability to horizontally scale deployments, limitlessly, on commodity hardware.
“The CODiE Awards competition was extremely competitive this year, and all of the finalists should be commended for their innovative products and services,” said Rhianna Collier, VP for the Software Division at SIIA. “We look forward to honoring the winners at our awards program in May at All About the Cloud.”
The SIIA CODiE Awards are the premier award for the software and information industries, and have been recognizing product excellence for 27 years. This year there were 27 software categories, including twelve new and updated categories that reflect the continued growth and evolution of cloud computing, mobile, big data, and video. Winners will be announced during a special Awards luncheon on May 9 in San Francisco during the industry's most comprehensive ISV conference, All About the Cloud.
