Today I’m happy to announce that Varonis DatAnywhere, an enterprise-class file sync and sharing solution, is now GA (generally available). We’re also hosting a webinar on DatAnywhere this afternoon if you want to see it in action.
I’ve been using DatAnywhere every day since the early alpha version was handed to us a few months ago. Along with an amazing group of beta customers, we were able to provide engineering with the feedback they needed to iterate fast and furiously and, ultimately, create a product we loveto use.
Some reasons why I love DatAnywhere:
DatAnywhere stays out of the way.
I’ve used Box and Dropbox for personal data and both products are a pleasure to use. I have a folder, I put stuff in it, and it syncs. That’s it. DatAnywhere is exactly the same experience. From a user’s perspective, it could be a cloud app. Or a hybrid app. I wouldn’t know the difference. But my IT department and CEO can rest assured that our company IP won’t leave our corporate infrastructure.
I can get to my files from iOS, Android, Mac or PC.
I can easily share files with third parties.
I can right-click and instantly generate a pin-coded URL where parties and customers can download or upload files from a web UI.
It’s secure and auditable.
Everything is encrypted over the wire, I don’t need to connect to a VPN to sync, all data is stored in our data center—not in a third-party cloud—and IT can monitor user activity and shared links.
It doesn’t change our existing infrastructure.
We got up and running fast because we didn’t have to move our data to a dedicated server. As Terri McClure, Senior Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group puts it:
“With Varonis DatAnywhere, organizations don’t have to modify their processes, infrastructure or permissions in order to give end users the functionalities they crave. Access controls stay the same, data classification continues to function, and data doesn’t need to be moved to a new server.”
We left everything on the NAS with its existing NTFS permissions in-tact. We use Active Directory authentication, so there was no need to create additional users and groups.
