Varonis Systems, Inc. announced Varonis for Microsoft 365 Copilot -- the industry's first purpose-built solution to secure Microsoft's AI-powered productivity tool before and after deployment. Varonis' new offering builds on its existing Microsoft 365 security suite, adding new capabilities to monitor Copilot data access in real time, detect abnormal Copilot interactions, and automatically limit sensitive data accessible by both humans and AI agents. AI tools can unlock incredible efficiency gains, but when not properly controlled, can unintentionally expose sensitive information to employees and allow cybercriminals and insider threats to find, encrypt, or steal data faster than ever.

Varonis for Microsoft 365Copilot's rapidly growing feature list includes: Copilot posture dashboards. Get a real-time view of sensitive and regulated data exposed to Copilot users, analyze usage trends, and track sensitive data accessed by AI; Copilot policy automation. Enforce security policies to continuously limit Copilot's access to sensitive information and prevent accidental data leakage.

Automatically apply sensitivity labels to data created by Copilot; Varonis collects and enriches Copilot events so can answer questions such as, "which users accessed sensitive financial data via Copilot this week; Copilot threat detection. Varonis' user behavior analysis (UBA) engine factors in Copilot activity and notifies customers of abnormal or suspicious Copilot interactions with sensitive data; Athena AI integration. Varonis for Microsoft365 Copilot works with Athena AI's SOC assistant and natural language search, making it easy to investigate and resolve Copilot-related security incidents.
