"I love Netwrix Auditor for the complete visibility it provides for file servers. It helped me identify and recover files affected by malware. The software also comes in handy when employees accidentally move or delete other users' files. Combined with NTFS permissions, files are safer and more reliable. When preparing for and passing internal audits, the software saves us a great amount of time."
