Varonis Systems is an American software company with headquarters in New York City. They developed a security software platform to let organizations track, visualize, analyze and protect their unstructured data. Varonis performs User Behavior Analytics (UBA) to identify abnormal behavior and defend enterprise data from cyberattacks. Their software extracts metadata from an enterprise’s IT infrastructure and uses this information to map relationships among employees, data objects, content, and usage - giving organizations more visibility into their data, and protecting their critical and sensitive information. Varonis Systems was founded in 2004 by Yaki Faitelson and Ohad Korkus, in order to address security issues such as file activity tracking, information rights management, and access control. Prior to Varonis, Mr. Faitelson and Mr. Korkus held leadership positions in the global professional services and systems integration divisions of NetVision and NetApp. In 2003, a number of critical files - expensive, high res images of the ocean floor - disappeared suddenly from the file servers where they were stored. The energy company that had spent millions of dollars to create those images wanted to know who deleted the files, and who had access to the folders holding the files. Storage experts Faitelson and Korkus quickly realized that there were no existing systems able to answer these questions, and founded Varonis in order to create a better way to protect, track, analyze, and visualize data.
