Mukid Meah, Systems Engineer - Group IT for Emerson Industrial Automation, explains Since deploying DatAdvantage, I now have complete visibility of the entire network. Using the information collected, Im able to click on a server, click on a file share and see exactly who has access.

By feeding the DatAdvantage intelligence into DataPrivilege, the combined solution automatically identifies and tracks ownership for folders. The owner then assumes responsibility for granting access to their data, removing the middle man IT with everything processed through the DataPrivilege portal. Mukid adds, Weve quickly discovered the efficiency of the combined system. When we train our data owners and end users how to use the software, theyre impressed by its simplicity and think its fantastic. Ive not had any problems from anyone saying that theyre a bit lost probably because its simply click on the folder that you manage and grant or deny access for each user. So provisioning access requests, that previously could take anything from a few hours to a couple of weeks depending on everyones availability, can now be resolved in as little as five minutes.
Emerson has recently trialled Varonis IDU Classification Framework to search through its files and folders for instances of its source code identified either by its extension name or a significant keyword. The Classification Framework then reports which file shares contain the sensitive data and warns if its overly exposed allowing Mukid to take remediate action.
A final challenge
