Greenhill Automates Data Access Controls with Namtek Partner Solution

BEDFORD, NH. — April 25, 2012 —Namtek Corp., an IT integrator, is pleased to share that yet another global company has improved data management by utilizing Namtek partner, Varonis, to successfully monitor and control data access activity. Investment bank, Greenhill Corp, needed a data governance solution. With offices and clients spread across the globe and the nature of data often very sensitive, Greenhill’s manually managed data access controls were not strong enough. The company’s CIO, John Shaffer, recognized the need for automation to better manage the company’s data access activities.

Shaffer tested Varonis’s DatAdvantage solution to see how it could improve upon manual data access management practices. The discovery process proved fruitful, with DatAdvantage immediately identifying who had access rights to what files, who moved what files where, and which files were unprotected. After implementing DatAdvantage, Greenhill immediately identified and tightened Windows rights. It now utilizes automated analyses to examine its permission structure and better identify areas for tightening controls and conducts data access change scenarios before implementing them, empowering Shaffer to safely test continuous process improvements. To build upon its data governance success, Greenhill currently looks forward to expanding its deployment to include DatAdvantage for Exchange--to similarly control email access practices.
