April 13, 2021 GMT

NEW YORK, April 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Varonis Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: VRNS), a pioneer in data security and analytics, announces that the Varonis Data Security Platform supports Microsoft Azure Government for DoD/Impact Level 5 (IL5) and Microsoft 365 Government. DoD Impact Level 5 accommodates Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) and National Security Systems that must be secured to a higher standard.


Varonis will be hosting the webinar “Complexity is the Enemy of Security: Protecting Data in Office 365 GCC High (IL4) and GCC DOD (IL5)” on Wednesday, April 28, 2021 at 1:00 pm EDT. Register to attend the webinar.

Varonis partners with government defense agencies, defense contractors, and multiple branches of the U.S. Armed Forces to protect their on-premises data. Varonis now stands ready to support defense agencies moving to the Microsoft DoD cloud. The Varonis  Data Security Platform  helps thousands of public and private organizations worldwide secure their critical information using automation to enforce zero trust, tackle privacy and compliance tasks, and detect advanced cyber threats from nation-states to insiders.

“As DoD agencies transition to hybrid cloud environments, data security becomes more challenging,” says Michael J. Wallace, President, U.S. Public Sector, Varonis. “To reduce risk, it’s imperative to enforce permissions and monitor for threats using automation and best-in-class solutions. The Varonis team is dedicated to supporting the missions of DoD agencies, civilian federal agencies, and government contractors as they leverage the Microsoft cloud.”

Varonis recently announced  support for Microsoft’s U.S. Government Community Cloud (GCC/IL2) and U.S. Government Community Cloud High (GCC-High/IL4) environments.


In December 2020, the Varonis Data Security Platform achieved Common Criteria certification from the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP), a U.S. government initiative that oversees the evaluation of commercial cybersecurity and IT products for use in national security systems.
