CTERA partners with Varonis to integrate security capabilities for remote workers

CTERA, the edge-to-cloud file services provider, is collaborating with Varonis to integrate the Varonis Data Security Platform with the CTERA Enterprise File Services Platform.

The joint solution will offer data classification, audit log processing, and auditing capabilities to defend sensitive data from theft, leakage, and loss.

Together, CTERA and Varonis allow organizations to modernize their file services while simplifying compliance with regulations such as GDPR, SOX, and HIPAA.

The ability to protect files wherever they are created, accessed, and shared across the remote workforce has become imperative for the post-COVID enterprise.

CTERA’s global file system technology connects core, branch, and WFH users over a single namespace and delivers HQ-grade data access experiences from any location or device.

The CTERA Enterprise File Services Platform combines the unlimited capacity of cloud object storage with caching-enabled filers to empower organizations to replace and consolidate legacy NAS infrastructure. Remote office users increase productivity through real-time multi-site file synchronization while IT reduces file storage complexity and cost.

The Varonis integration with CTERA enhances the centralized visibility of organizational files from edge to cloud. The Varonis Data Security Platform detects and responds to threats that bypass traditional perimeter security. Machine learning algorithms automatically detect and alert on abnormal user behaviors that indicate potential compromise by threats such as ransomware and trigger responses to mitigate any possible damage.

“The continued adoption of hybrid environments created a fundamental shift in the way enterprises protect their most sensitive data,” said Hanit Fein, senior director of product management at Varonis. “Today, there is no such thing as a network perimeter, and IT and security teams must safeguard corporate information with a data-first approach. We are pleased to work with CTERA as a technology partner to provide enterprises and other organizations with a scalable security solution.”

Varonis maps out CTERA permission structures to help administrators understand where data is overexposed and begin remediation efforts.

Varonis correlates data activity from CTERA into context with additional information such as data classification, authentication events, and network activity to provide a complete audit trail of user activity.

"Varonis represents the industry standard for data security and threat protection,” said Oded Nagel, chief strategy officer, CTERA. “By integrating Varonis’s technology into our global file system, we offer enterprises a compelling solution to power the new enterprise working environment with secure and tightly controlled distributed file services across core, branch, and home users.”
