Varonis vs. STEALTHbits

Varonis vs. STEALTHbits – Which is right for you?

Making an informed choice

Features and functionality are only a part of the equation when evaluating technology investments. It is equally important to understand the underlying architecture and footprint of a potential solution to ensure it fits the organization’s business and security needs. Many companies have made unstructured data governance a priority in recent years, and this often means evaluating the StealthAUDIT Management Platform from STEALTHbits against Varonis’ DatAdvantage and DataPrivilege products. Both suites support data access governance initiatives, but each solution utilizes a completely different approach.
