Executive Overview

Herndon Capital Management is an institutional investment management firm which specializes in large and mid size capitalization equity strategies. The company was founded and registered with Security & Exchange Commission in the year 2001..

The firm is an affiliate of Atlanta Life Financial Group (ALFG) – a 109-years-old financial services organization. Herndon Capital Management, serving different types of institutional clients, has primary focus on Large Cap Funds. The clients that Herndon Capital Management serves are: Public Funds, Mutual Funds, UMA (Non-Discretionary Models), WRAP Platforms, Corporate Assets, Taft Hartley, Foundations, Commingled Trusts, Hospital Plan, Endowments, and ALFG (Affiliate) Assets.

Herndon Capital Management store a number of sensitive files on their network. They were lacking the ability to monitor all User actions in the File Server environment. Moreover, there was no means to determine who is making what changes to files and folders in the file server. Important files would get moved without instant automated email notifications to the administrator.

Herndon Capital Management wanted to monitor all File Server activities to prevent data loss arising out of unwarranted User actions. They also sought pre-defined reports, in easily readable format, on all past User actions so that history of User actions for a particular time period on any File Server can be determined. As a means to take preventive action, they required a system that could prompt in real-time if and when any sensitive file is deleted or moved to a different location.

How LepideAuditor for File Server solved their issue

Herndon Capital Management were looking for a File Server auditor system which could audit their entire File Server environment and give the IT administrators a top view of all User actions affecting important files and folders. They tried a number of File Server auditor software and eventually chose LepideAuditor for File Server. This application’s alerting capabilities intimates administrator by email in real time when certain activities are performed on a file/folder. It also provides them an excellent visibility into their File Server’s data.
