FileAudit – Monitor shared files/folders on Windows Server & Cloud Storage
FileAudit – Proactively track, audit, report, alert on and respond to, all access to files and folders on Windows Servers and in the cloud.
FileAudit makes your auditing faster, smarter, and more efficient. FileAudit offers an easy yet robust tool for monitoring, auditing, and securing access to files, folders, and file shares that reside on Windows Systems and the cloud by making it easy to see what’s happening with the organization’s data. This significantly reduces the risk of internal threats and quickly identifies any inappropriate access to file servers that need to be reviewed and remediated. You can also extend file auditing to data stored in the cloud (OneDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox & Box). FileAudit offers one single, consolidated solution for monitoring files and folders stored both on-premises and in the cloud.
How does FileAudit work
FileAudit makes your auditing faster, smarter, and more efficient. Go far beyond native Windows event log file access to get comprehensive and accurate information on files stored on-premises and in the cloud. FileAudit comes with powerful filtering capabilities.
It constantly examines and records read/write/delete accesses (or access attempts), file ownership changes, and permission modifications, so IT or management can immediately address any inappropriate accesses. The agentless technology is based on a Windows Service installed on the FileAudit host. There is no mandatory requirement to install it on the system that is to be audited.
Easy to install, easy to use
FileAudit was designed with usability in mind for maximum efficiency and ease of use. Users can be up and running with FileAudit and monitoring, archiving and reporting on file access in less than three minutes. The intuitive interface makes it easy to select the files and folders to be audited, customize alert settings and report delivery schedule, and you are automatically ensuring security in real-time and generating reports for auditing and regulatory compliance.
With a simple, agent-less deployment IT Managers can quickly install it and instantly secure access to all File Servers in their Windows environment without intrusion or the need for deployment on individual servers. Users can be up and running with FileAudit, monitoring, archiving, and reporting on file access in less than three minutes.
File and Folder Monitoring: Monitor, in real-time, access to sensitive files stored on both Windows Servers and in cloud storage. Powerful filtering helps you find the answers you need quickly; tracking IP address and machine name pinpoints the exact access.
Alerts and Automated Response: Set up email alerts and a triggered response for access events (access denied – file deletion – a specific user, machine or IP address – a time of access) and mass access events such as the copy, deletion or movement of bulk files.
File and Folder Access Auditing: Review a searchable, secure, and always-available audit trail. Analyze the access to and usage of files stored both on-premises and in the cloud. Schedule centralized reports according to multiple criteria.
NTFS Permissions Reporting: Report on NTFS permissions and properties for all files and folders. Get a complete and centralized view of both simple and advanced permissions, and properties such as size, creation date, and last modified date.
Cloud Data Monitoring : Extend access auditing to data stored in the cloud (OneDrive, SharePoint Online, Google Drive, Dropbox & Box). One single, consolidated solution for monitoring files and folders stored both on-premises and in the cloud.
Secure sensitive enterprise data from improper access, potential theft, alteration, or destruction:- FileAudit provides IT professionals with the optimal visibility into data access events to help detect and combat malicious access and the alteration of sensitive information. The opportunity to react quickly in identifying potential abuse significantly reduces the risk of security breaches.
Simple to install & easy to use:- Agentless, remote and non-intrusive; FileAudit offers an easy yet robust tool to secure access to files, folders, and file shares that reside on Windows System. Microsoft certified for compliance and support with Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8, It can be installed in less than 3 minutes on any machine. Because it is so easy and intuitive, even non-IT executives (and external auditors) can use FileAudit securely and autonomously.
Significantly reduce the workload related to monitoring access to sensitive files and folders:- Manual event log analysis is a tedious and time-consuming task: decrypting hundreds or even thousands of events and attempting to retrieve those of interest generates endless hours of non-value-added work and creates a significant risk of error. With a simple right-click in Windows Explorer or from the console, it instantly provides comprehensive and accurate information about access to sensitive files and folders.
Help regulated organizations meet compliance requirements:- Organizations can prove to regulators that sensitive information is being monitored and protected effectively through comprehensive monitoring on all access activity to data found on files, folders, and file shares. Industries working under compliance standards such as ISO 27001, HIPAA, PCI DSS, Sarbanes-Oxley, NIST 800-53, NESA, ADSIC, and ISR require strict access control measures. FileAudit can help organizations meet these regulations and avoid compliance-related penalties.
