Main features

Real-Time Monitoring

Monitor, in real time, access (or access attempts) to sensitive files and folders stored on Windows systems (read/write/delete accesses, file ownership changes, permission modifications, attribute changes, etc.).

Automatic Email Alerts

Set up E-mail alerts for predetermined access events (access denied - file deletion - a specific user, machine or IP address - time of access - and mass access events such as the copy, deletion or movement of bulk files).

File Server Intelligence

Schedule recurrent email delivery of reports customized according to multiple criteria (path, file type, access type, IP source address, machine name, etc.) for auditing and regulatory compliance.

Delegation to Non-IT

Create specific accounts for people with no administrative rights (external auditors, non-IT executives, etc.), allowing them to perform audits securely and autonomously.
