What data can I get?
If you don’t regularly monitor who accesses which critical data on your Nutanix file servers, someone might view a confidential document that they are not supposed to see and you won’t know about the violation. The file access monitoring provided by Netwrix Auditor enables you to regularly review read access events to confidential data so you can make sure that this data is not touched by unauthorized personnel.
In order to protect the sensitive data your organization possesses, you need to know where it's located and who has access to it. Netwrix Auditor in combination with Netwrix Data Classification pinpoints the types of sensitive information you store, the locations where it is kept and whether this data is overexposed. Plus, you can quickly check who has access to critical files and folders, and get the full context around activity with them. Regularly review this information to make sure nothing endangers the security of your sensitive data.
