File Server Auditing
Data is everything when it comes to IT security and, at Lepide, we're all about securing the File Server data. Ensuring you have adequate File Server auditing and monitoring tools in place is more important than ever before. We believe all organizations should instantly be able to see 'who, what, where and when' files and folders are created, accessed, modified, copied or deleted at the click of a button. We also think it's essential that organizations are easily able to track and compare permissions across their data. Lepide's File Server auditing solution addresses the challenges of the rise of the insider-threat and the reporting requirements associated with common regulatory compliance mandates. We give IT teams the power to see more, faster. Our solution is specifically designed to work on Windows File Server and NetApp Filers. LepideAuditor for File Server is available standalone or as a part our comprehensive LepideAuditor.
How We Help to Audit File Server Changes
Deploying an File Server auditing solution, like LepideAuditor, helps you get more visibility into the changes taking place to your critical data stored in your File Servers. Real-time alerting, pre-defined reports and powerful File Server auditing capabilities, enable you to get a better understanding of user behaviour surrounding your data. Here are just some ways in which LepideAuditor for File Server can help your business.
- Intuitive Dashboard Our graphical dashboard will enable you to easily track changes occurring across the whole of your File Server environment. It provides you with an easy-to-understand overview of the total number of changes made to File Server; broken down per administrator, source and trend. This should help you not only understand the causes of a single change, but help you spot overall anomalies in events. The performance of your File Server is also tracked and reported on to help you decrease downtime. The LiveFeed shows you all File Server changes made as they are happening so that you can react to them quicker.
- Granular Audit Reports LepideAuditor displays a single log for a single change that gives you the answers to the “who, what, when and where” auditing questions. This data is collected and presented through predefined audit reports aimed at helping you solve all manner of security, compliance and IT operations challenges. Every change made is displayed with before and after values to provide you with helpful context. You can customize these reports with auditing functions and create dedicated reports to track a specific file, folder, user or operation. Reports are delivered via email at user-defined intervals through email or by saving at a shared location in either CSV, MHT or PDF formats. These File Server audit reports can be shared via a secure web console.
- Alerts on Critical Changes The earlier you can react to File Server changes, the easier it is to mitigate the damage that can occur. To do this, LepideAuditor offers real time alerts based on a single event or based on threshold conditions that have been defined by the user. For example, we can set an alert to be sent to the intended recipients if an event occurs a certain number of times over a defined period of time. This kind of alerting enables you to spot trends in changes that may be indicative of unauthorized or inappropriate activity.
- Meeting Compliances Demands A common driver for installing a solution such as LepideAuditor is regulatory compliance. Our solution addresses the ever-increasing demand to prove to auditors that adequate steps are being taken to ensure data is being responsibly monitored. It provides a wide range of detailed reports that directly map to the common requirements of compliance standards; such as PCI, SOX, HIPAA, GLBA, FISMA and GDPR. Read more
- Mobile AppLepideAuditor comes with a free mobile app that has been specifically designed to help you track File Server changes on the go. It sends push-notifications for file or folder deleted, file or folder created, creation failed, access attempts made to critical files and folders, permission modifications and much more. You can get these notifications either in real-time or whenever they reach a threshold limit. Read more
