Lepide File Server Auditor enables you to audit when files and folders are created, accessed, modified, copied or deleted in file server. We also help organizations track and compare permissions across their file servers. Lepide's File Server auditing software addresses the challenges of the rise of the insider-threat and the data reporting requirements associated with common regulatory compliance mandates. We give IT teams the power to see more, faster.

Persistent Data Classification at the Point of Creation

Persistent discovery and data classification of files in File Server allows you to see what sensitive data you have and where data is located.

With the widest range of file types for data classification, you can scan, tag, categorize and score your data to ensure you are compliant with industry standards.

Lepide is a perfect fit for our IT Security and Compliance requirements. It helps us cut out a lot of wasted time and money and now we know we can be compliant with industry standards.

At Lepide, we know that organizations often store vast amounts of sensitive data on their file servers, and IT teams need to know when users are accessing this data. Lepide’s File Server auditing tool audits all file read events across multiple file servers and can produce detailed file access audit reports with the click of a button. On these reports, you’ll be able to see detailed file server audit information, including who tried to read the file, what the file contained, when and where and whether the attempt was successful.
Native file server auditing software leaves a lot to be desired. No one has the time or the inclination to delve through thousands of file sever event logs and format them into a readable report. Doing this once would be a challenge, let alone on a regular basis. Lepide File Server auditing tool enables you automate your file server auditing efforts through pre-defined reports, real time alerts and behavioral analysis.
Absolutely. Changes to file server permissions can put your sensitive data at risk through unauthorized access or unwanted changes being made. Therefore, being able to effectively audit file server permission changes is critical. Lepide file server auditing tool provides real time alerts and pre-defined reports for all permission changes, as well as a view of the current and historical state of file server permissions.
File server auditing gives you the visibility you need to determine whether your sensitive data is secure or whether you are open to security threats. The critical things you need to establish are: where is my sensitive data stored? Why is data sensitive? Who has access to data? What are users doing with data? Knowing the answers to these key file server auditing questions will enable you to better determine the state of your file server security.
There are many ways that file server auditing will help you to keep your sensitive data secure from threats. The Lepide File Server auditor enables you to spot when users become threats through advanced user behavior analytics, threshold alerting and anomaly spotting. We have also included pre-defined threat model templates for a number of known file server security vulnerabilities, such as ransomware, insider threats, compromised users, privilege abuse and more.
We have hundreds of pre-defined audit reports for file server included in the Data Security Platform, including but not limited to; all modifications, file copies, read successful, read failed, file and folder created, file and folder created failed, file and folder deleted, file and folder renamed, file and folder moved, permissions reports and more. Simplify and enhance your file server auditing with our pre-defined file server audit reports.
In our file sever auditing software, there is an in-built data classification engine with pre-defined rules and templates that you can enable right out of the box. During data classification, if a recognized pattern is found in the file, Lepide tags and classifies the data. The file will then be indexed for reporting and searching. Our data classification can be run periodically across all data in file server, or continually as new data is created in file server.
