    Varonis DatAdvantage Review

    Overall Comment

    The Varonis suite works well for NetApp FPolicy event collection and monitoring, this largely works on a day later mentality unless you take actions within the GUI to syncronize data. The product also works well for Active Directory event log integration which provides complete visibility to Active Directory object changes. For these use cases, the product works sufficiently with periodic maintenance to keep it running. Deployment can be difficult to server endpoints as it is largely a manual process within the GUI, and all servers (Windows/Linux) require an agent. There is PowerShell integration to automate deployment though the scripts are provided as-is and are not officially supported. The largest hurdle has been the unexpected storage considerations, plan to get hard numbers from similarly sized organizations.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Perform a POC within your Prod environment if possible, you cannot test everything available with limited data in a lab environment.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Active Directory and Netapp monitoring/audit/logging/reporting

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    Somewhat outdated GUI and deployment model

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    They have their professional services and support split, it can be difficult to determine which team is better to assist.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    Find your use cases first and start slow to avoid storage issues. Protect only critical NAS/Servers first and see how it acts.

    Varonis is a fantastic solution

    Overall Comment

    the product was exactly what was described. The functionality was excellent. Inplementation was very smooth. Even skeptics were impressed with how easily the product works. The reports that come out of it are full of helpful information. We have moved to making all changs to sensitive folder permissions to Varonis

    Look at the demo and imagine what it could do for you, and then ask what else it does and I expect you will be very happy

    Its ease of use and the ability to queue up changes and have them commit when all changes are in the system

    nothing

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    I would love more customer events to see what is on the road map and see in action the newer features that I have not implemented yet.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    I would have implemented this sooner into coming to the company.

    Varonis IDU suite is awesome.

    Overall Comment

    Varonis was very customer focused and provided excellent support during the implementation phase.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Ensure you have allowed for both internal manpower resouces, and compute resources. Neither should be a major hurdle.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Vendor is very focused on the customer. Vendor resources and vendor support are liberally applied to help the customer effectively.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    Product works as advertised.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    Defined the product components better in the sales/planning phase.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    Project has moved through stages in an effective manner and has been overall an excellent experience. More internal resources should have been involved in the implementation phase from a training experience.
