G2 Review by - IT Director

Quotes One of the best, less intrusive File Audit programs at a very reasonable cost.

Capterra Review by - Oil & Energy

Like no other

Easy to understand and use. We got FileAudit due to a breach of trust from a key employee. We didn't expect it to happen and when it did we were dumbfounded. This adds a layer of accountability to all staff members.

Capterra Review by

Great Software

It gives you a good in depth look at who and what is accessing files on your file servers. We use File Audit to monitor mass data removal from our file server and to run reports when files get accidentally moved or deleted.
