Executive Overview

Northwestern University School of Law is ranked among the top 15 law schools in the US and has been responsible for producing some of the brightest lawyers in the country for the last 150 years.

The higher education establishment was also the very first law school in Chicago.

When the law school began storing HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) data on a research server it signed a contractual agreement to ensure the data would be fully monitored at all times to ensure security and control the access of the data. The specific requirements were for a solution that was easy to install, simple to use and that provided advanced and comprehensive reporting and alerting capabilities.

The school began an extensive search for the right vendor and after a throrough evaluation process decided on the File Server Auditor solution from Lepide. It delivered against all of their core requirements and was licensed per file server which meant it was much more aggressively priced than some of the other contenders.

How LepideAuditor for File Server solved their issue

The File Server Auditor solution provided the ability to instantly track permission changes along with file and folder level changes across their Windows file servers and provided additional visibility as to ‘who, what, where and when’ detail pertaining to file/folder level access, copying and modification. Ultimately the solution helped them deliver the necessary reports for HIPAA compliance, provided additional security by showing data access auditing. The school noted "LepideAuditor for File Server has been perfect for our needs and proved to be a comprehensive tool that is able to monitor and report on all access to the server. It is an excellent product that we would strongly recommend to anyone looking to meet similar challenges to ourselves."
