NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Options, the leading private financial cloud provider for the global capital markets industry, has today announced that it has partnered with Varonis to deploy its data governance software to the Options PIPE platform. The partnership will see the infrastructure as a service (IaaS) firm offer clients complete visibility, security and control on all their data.
“We’re delighted to have deployed Varonis’ suite of data governance software to the Options platform as part of our PIPE Core offering”
The Varonis suite of data governance software boasts market leading audit capabilities that allow for the management and monitoring of all user actions on critical infrastructure, including full transparency of access activity on file shares and Exchange servers. The software provides organizations with the ability to update and change user permissions efficiently and effectively, permit the moderator to see who has opened, deleted, modified, saved or altered a file, identify the various data owners, and alert organisations to data that may be at risk to misuse or subject to irregular activity. Additionally, this information can also be made available to users in report form.
The Varonis suite will be deployed as part of Options’ PIPE® Core services, a key component of Options’ Private Financial Cloud platform. PIPE Core is a complete business technology infrastructure service providing a robust and resilient technology foundation for day-to-day business communication, regulatory compliance and operations management.
“We’re delighted to have deployed Varonis’ suite of data governance software to the Options platform as part of our PIPE Core offering”, said Options’ CTO, John Bryant. “Modern regulatory and market conditions within the financial services industry demand that our clients must now handle their business critical data in a highly secure and sophisticated manner. Varonis’ technology brings that level of compliance to the Options platform. For clients of Options it will mean complete visibility and control over all their data, ensuring that only those who you require to have access to data can do so. A user’s resulting activity and interaction with the data can also be closely monitored.”
David Gibson, VP at Varonis, commented, “Secure, digital collaboration is critical for the continued success of any data-driven organization, particularly those in regulated industries. We are honoured that Options has chosen to partner with us to help its customers better manage and protect their critical information.”
