Control what is happening to your files and folders

Choose from 30+ out-of-the-box reports that detail access events (successful and failed); changes made to files and folders; the previous and current state of your file systems; and data ownership and usage. You can also quickly determine effective permissions by user and by object, as well as identify excessive permissions.
"Netwrix Auditor helps us identify which users have access to protected folders or payroll or accounting folders that contain business-critical information and require special protection. It also sheds light on attempts to access files, so we can easily spot malicious user activity and be proactive in terms of defense against insider misuse."

Harden your data protection with threshold-based alerts

When a wave of file encryptions starts, you still have a chance to save your data. Threshold-based alerts inform you if someone is trying to modify way too many files at a time, so you can block a ransomware attack in progress.

Investigate activity that seem suspicious

If a report or dashboard indicates a problem, such as that a critical file was deleted, you’ll want to investigate immediately. With the Interactive Search feature, you can quickly get answers, such as who deleted the file, who gave excessive permissions to that user, and what else the user did on your file servers.

Keep access to your sensitive data under control

File access monitoring capabilities enable you to quickly detect suspicious access to sensitive files. For example, the Successful File Read report provides detailed information about who attempted to open which file, when the attempt was made and which workstation was used.

Detect who has access to data they shouldn’t have

Ensure access rights are granted only to users who really need them. A predefined report on excessive access permissions enables you to quickly identify users who have permissions they are not using, so you can restrict their access and lock down overexposed data.

Compare your current configuration with a past state

Make sure that file and folder permissions do not change without your authorization. State-in-Time™ reports enable you to view and compare current and past file server configurations.

Optimize your file server space

When you run low on space on your file servers, get file analysis reports showing the largest files and duplicate or unused files so you can involve their owners in the process of optimizing space on the file servers.

Archive your audit trail for later reviews and periodic checks by auditors

Store file server audit data for over 10 years with the two-tiered (file-based + SQL database) AuditArchive™ storage. You can review historical data, investigate security incidents and address periodic report requests from auditors.

Ensure granular segregation of duties

Stay compliant with security policies and industry regulations by allowing only the right people to configure file server monitoring or to view security intelligence. Simply assign predefined roles to users to limit their access in accordance with the scope of their responsibilities or subscribe them to only receive particular reports.
Ensure granular segregation of duties
"Netwrix Auditor sends custom weekly report to department managers with all their folders changes, and it really has removed the burden of huge auditing requirements from our IT department. One of the great advantages is filtering file changes based on folder path. This technique has helped us separate each department head’s report based on his/her files only."
