May 8, 2012 - PRLog -- Varonis Systems Inc. ( the leading provider of comprehensive data governance software and Hewlett Packard are hosting a webinar event on May 15 at 11 am Eastern, outlining how IT can tap into Big Data to increase security, collaborate more effectively, and free-up valuable IT resources.

Big data analytics has already turned entire industries on their head. The most data–more than 80% (Source: IDC) –lives on file servers, NAS devices and email systems in the form of spreadsheets, presentations, audio files, video files, blueprints and designs. However, unstructured data repositories often don’t have much existing metadata to analyze. There is usually no record of activity, no strict connection to the creators and owners of the data, and no catalog or index of what all the data contains. In order to harness the power of “Big Data,” organizations need to analyze and look for patterns in how and when these massive amounts of data are used, who uses it, in what sequence, and its content in order to effectively run a data-driven organization.

“During this event, in addition to outlining why Big Data is such a big story, our technical experts will show how IT is leveraging new metadata framework technology to access the goldmine of information available about their existing data. We’ll also outline how Big Data is enabling organizations to make more informed decisions about data access and ultimately increase the security of sensitive data,” said David Gibson, director of strategy at Varonis.

Organizations are beginning to realize that they need to harness the power of metadata in order to better manage, protect, and get the most out their valuable and voluminous user generated content. Metadata framework technology provides a platform to answer fundamental questions such as:

•   Who has and is accessing,
•   Who should and shouldn’t have access,
•   What’s in use and what isn't,
•   What’s sensitive,
•   Who owns it, and
•   Who’s abusing it?

Learn how Big Data Analytics and automation can transform the way in which your organization collaborates and governs its data.
