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; data ownership and usage; effective permissions by user and by object; and excessive permissions. You can also easily understand where your classified data is located, control effective permissions to that data and monitor user activity around it.
"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."

Tighten control over regulated data with data discovery and classification

Easily identify the types of classified information you have on your shares, including bank card data or medical records, and exactly where this data is stored. Regularly review this information to ensure that sensitive data is not stored outside of secure locations.
Keep access to your sensitive data under control

Detect who has access to data they shouldn’t have

Ensure that access rights are granted only to users who really need them. Regularly review effective permissions to files and folders and ensure that they are in line with internal policies and the least-privilege principle.

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 opened which files, when the access occurred and which workstation was used.

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 the deletion of a critical file, 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.

Optimize your file server space

Stop constantly running low on file server space. By regularly reviewing file analysis reports showing the largest files and duplicate or unused files, 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 in 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."
