NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/18/14 -- EY today announced that Varonis (NASDAQ: VRNS) CEO and Co-Founder Yaki Faitelson has received the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year 2014 Award in the technology category in New York. The award recognizes outstanding entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Faitelson was selected by an independent panel of judges, and the award was presented at a special gala event at the Marriott Marquis on Tuesday, June 17th.
Varonis Systems, the leading provider of software solutions for unstructured, human-generated enterprise data, was founded in 2004 by Faitelson and Co-Founder Ohad Korkus.
Faitelson said, "On behalf of the entire Varonis team, we are extremely grateful to EY and to the judges for this recognition," said Faitelson. "Nearly a decade ago, my co-founder Ohad Korkus and I had a dream to build a technology platform that would enable organizations to realize more value from the data their employees create and share every day -- making them more productive, more secure and more cost-efficient. Many great people joined us along the way and we created a new software company that could thrive at the intersection of security and productivity and make the digital world a better place. Today we are fortunate to be doing a lot of good for our customers, employees and our shareholders."
Now in its 28th year, the EY Entrepreneur of the Year program has honored the inspirational leadership of such entrepreneurs as Howard Schultz of Starbucks Coffee Company, Pierre Omidyar of eBay, Inc., and Mindy Grossman of HSN. Recent US national winners include Reid Hoffman and Jeff Weiner of LinkedIn; Hamdi Ulukaya, founder of Chobani; and 2013 winner Hamid Moghadam, CEO and Chairman of Prologis.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time.
