Restoring Deleted Permissions with Varonis

This afternoon a hedge fund client called with a high profile problem. One of the system admins from their outsourcer had deleted all of the Active Directory permissions of the General Counsel. Not a great person to prevent from accessing the system. Since they are a Varonis DatAdvantage user, I was able to help them solve this problem.

We ran a query from the log area and selected "History of differences" as the data source. The keys were to set the "File Server" to "IDU" and set the "Change Description" to start with his fully defined domain account. Then we got a list of all of the groups that he belogned to and my client was able to restore them all and get the General Counsel up and running ASAP.

DatAdvantage to the rescue.
