Real Time File Server Auditing & Reporting Tool
ManageEngine FileAudit Plus is an agent-based file auditing and reporting software. Monitor in real-time the changes to all files in the file system along with thorough reports on every activity as to ‘who’ did ‘what’, ‘when’ and ‘from where’. Keep track of changes made to the files, file objects in the folders or sub-folders and shares. Watch out for any changes made to a particular type of file (for e.g. *.log) or choose to exclude servers and file types.
Any good organization’s security policies would recommend the use of a real-time file monitoring tool to continuously monitor the system files and Compliance standards like PCI DSS (11.5), Sarbanes-Oxley (Section 404), FISMA (NIST SP800-53) specifically regulate the need to perform periodic checks for any unauthorized modification of critical files on Windows File servers (system files, configuration files or text files; and ensure a reporting activity for periodic security analysis or for forensics in the event of a security breach.
With FileAudit Plus, keep a detailed record of every file access and activity, get email alerts for critical / unusual activities, monitor file permissions, identify file owners and meet Compliance requirements.
