Spectrami is teaming up with Varonis Systems to help the Middle East region tackle unstructured data governance

Online PR News – 09-January-2012 – – Leading value added distributor in the region, Spectrami today announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with Varonis Systems, the global leaders for unstructured data governance solutions for the Middle East region.

Varonis Systems provide solutions that manage and protect the unstructured data that is exploding and out of control within every organization. The number of documents, spreadsheets, presentations, media files and other business data sitting on file servers, NAS devices, and semi-structured repositories like SharePoint and Exchange is massive and growing fast. Data protection is necessary to safeguard an organization's customers, employees, business partners, and investors. It is fundamental in securing an organization's intellectual property and competitive edge, and for maintaining the organizational trust required for it to properly function.

According to IDC, 80% of organizational data is unstructured and will grow by 650% in the next five years. The Varonis Metadata Framework™ is designed to handle the ever-increasing volume and complexity for ongoing, scalable data protection and management, and enables secure, digital collaboration.

“We are glad to partner with Varonis and bring the unique unstructured data governance solutions to the region,” said, Anand Choudha, Managing Director, Spectrami. “Spectrami will offer Varonis solutions, training, marketing and sales tools to its channel partners, in order to accelerate growth in this fast growing data governance market segment in our region”.

Varonis delivers its solutions exclusively through channel partners so treats them as an extension of its sales team. Spectrami will play a fundamental role in its go-to-market strategy for the Middle East region.

“Varonis is very pleased to have Spectrami as a distributor in the Middle East,” said Jim O’Boyle, senior vice president of sales at Varonis. “The Spectrami and Varonis partnership will give Middle East customers access to advanced data governance automation and metadata framework technology, enabling organizations to easily identify excessive permissions and abnormal access activity on their File Systems, NAS devices, SharePoint Sites and Exchange by showing who has access to data, who is using their access, who shouldn't have access, who owns the data, and what data is sensitive.”

Spectrami is authorised to distribute data governance solutions from Varonis across the Middle East region including Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, and Oman among others.
