NetApp Filer Auditing Software

Netwrix Auditor for NetApp provides complete visibility into everything going on in your file storage. The application delivers deep insights into changes to files, folders, shares and permissions, as well as effective permissions, successful and failed access attempts, data usage, and data ownership.

Notifies you about suspicious or unauthorized actions, such as a sudden spike in file deletions, that could be a sign of malicious insider activity or a ransomware attack in progress.
File analysis reports
Provides actionable details on data ownership, data usage and data volume; and identifies stale and duplicate files.
Complete visibility into every change and access attempt
Delivers human-readable information on who changed what and when and where each change was made in NetApp filers. Also reports on who has access to what data and who attempted (successfully or not) to modify or access files.
Easy comparison of current and past configurations
Enables you to see whether there are any deviations from your permissions baseline by comparing the current state of NetApp filer permissions to any past state.
Compliance reporting with less effort
Includes predefined reports mapped to specific compliance standards, including PCI DSS, HIPAA, SOX, GLBA, FISMA/NIST, CJIS, GDPR and more.
Non-intrusive architecture
Doesn’t get in the way of system processes and performance, ensuring the seamless flow of operations.
Netwrix Auditor enables NetApp reporting and ongoing monitoring of changes and data access on NetApp filers, and supports all the latest versions of clustered Data ONTAP operating system. With more visibility into what's going on in NetApp filer storage, you can pass compliance audits with less effort, address auditors' questions faster, and solidify data security across your organization. Netwrix Auditor also supports auditing of EMC storage and Windows-based file servers with separate applications.

"We audit file servers and manipulations of critical data that seems to have been deleted or moved around. Now we can answer a question like, “I had this file here, but it is missing now. Who has deleted it?” It would be very difficult to give a precise person-date-time answer without Netwrix Auditor."
