Auditing file access on file servers with Netwrix Auditor
Information workers rely on file servers and storage devices for accessing critical files: HR files, financial data, business plans and more. Though content owners and IT departments work together to ensure that data is available only to those who need it, simply setting up all configurations on file servers and leaving them alone is not enough to protect confidential information from unauthorized access. That's why it's a must to constantly keep tabs on file access and monitor user activity on file servers.
File access auditing software from Netwrix tracks all file read events across multiple file servers and reports on them, with detailed information about who tried to read which file, when and where the attempt was made, and whether the attempt was successful. This enables organizations of any size to tighten their data security and adhere to compliance regulations.
A comprehensive solution for file system auditing
By default, file systems lack any easy-to-use change and configuration auditing. Therefore auditing a file system becomes an exhausting manual process. Logging into each server, searching through hundreds of event logs, formatting reports and distributing them on a scheduled basis takes too much time and is prone to error.
Netwrix Auditor for Windows File Servers overcomes the limitations of native auditing and automates the manual work by providing comprehensive file system tracking capabilities. By showing who changed what, when and where each change was made, and the current and previous values, Netwrix Auditor transforms complicated audit logs into easy-to-understand information.
File permissions audit software for data security and compliance
Lack of proper audit capabilities for file server permissions puts critical data at risk. Accidental or malicious changes to file permissions can lead to unauthorized access or unwanted changes to content, which could result in data loss, interrupted business processes or failed compliance audits.
Windows Server file permissions audit software from Netwrix provides a complete picture of the current state of permissions, as well as all changes made to them within a specified time frame. Netwrix Auditor for Windows File Servers helps IT administrators confirm on a regular basis that only eligible employees have access to confidential files and that no file permissions have been changed without their approval.
Improved data security and storage efficiency with the file analysis tool from Netwrix
In order to protect business data on file servers and keep storage costs under control at the same time, enterprises need to gain visibility into everything happening on file servers. Who has access to what? Are there any redundant permissions? Which files and folders are no longer in use and can be defensibly deleted? Who owns the largest files? With file analysis technology that helps answer these questions, it's much easier to make informed decisions regarding further data management actions.
Netwrix Auditor for Windows File Servers provides detailed file analysis reports that enable security professionals and storage managers to better understand their organizations' data structures and their usage, so they can make proactive and well-informed information management decisions.
Simplified audit checks with the file server reporting tool from Netwrix
IT professionals are often asked by their manager or auditors to provide comprehensive
reports with answers to specific questions about file servers. Reporting tools that can
provide this detailed information are therefore
of the utmost necessity.
Because native tools don't deliver any reports, IT admins have to implement multiple scripts to export information about activity in file systems running on Windows Server. File auditing capabilities offered by Netwrix Auditor for Windows File Servers eliminate all that work by providing insightful reports on changes and access to files and folders on your Windows Server, file server configurations and file server permissions, simplifying audits and slashing IT workload.
