Keeping track over the access to and use of data is critical to keeping sensitive data safe and ensuring compliance with industry regulations. But manually monitoring and auditing file access (and access attempts) is time-consuming and overwhelming.
It becomes even more challenging for environments with a mixture of on-premises and cloud storage. 56% of organizations struggle to secure the entirety of their hybrid file environment.*

FileAudit is more than logs and information. It protects data, across the whole organization, with real-time insights and the ability to immediately react with an automated response.
With a simple, agentless deployment, FileAudit can be installed in less than three minutes without intrusion or the typical cost and effort of installation and maintenance on individual servers.
Its single consolidated view of all file activity across on-premises and in the cloud, means administrators can now answer, “Who accessed your sensitive files today and what did they do?”
Identify all access, access attempts and usage of files, folders and file shares stored both on-premises and in the cloud with OneDrive for Business, Google Drive, Dropbox Business and Box.
Pinpoint IP address and machine name to know exactly where the user has accessed the file from.
Ensure data security and compliance by reporting on NTFS permissions for all your files and folders.
FileAudit also allows you to have a complete and centralized view of your file and folder properties such as size, attributes, creation date, last modified and last access date. You can also track and report on NTFS permission changes, to see who made the change, what the change was, and when they did it.
Give proper attention to suspicious file activity and/or what may equate to a data breach. Get alerts on single access events such as a file deletion, a denied access, a suspicious user, a particular IP address, irregular access times, bulk file copying or mass file deletion and movement.
To act on alerts, FileAudit can immediately react with an automated response. Execute a script to take immediate action before damage is done.
An always-available, searchable and secure audit trail on several Windows systems and cloud storage providers, means quick and accurate answers can be given to who did what, when and from where.
Get interactive, at-a-glance access reports of everything that’s happening with audited data. You can also schedule reports, access predefined reports and save favorite reports to streamline your process. You can also opt to email specified recipients with regular reports, customized according to multiple criteria for auditing and regulatory compliance.

FileAudit supports the following operating systems for Audit service installation (as for Console installation):
Take note that retrieving the IP address of the computer from which the access attempt has been performed through the network is supported for Windows 2008 R2 or higher File servers.
FileAudit installation files and folders require 60 MB of free hard disk space.
Additionally you have to consider the disk space consumed by the database to keep the file access events history: an access event audited by FileAudit consumes 0.5 KB of disk space when saved in the database. You can easily estimate the evolution of the database size by multiplying this value by the average number of access (known or observed during the test phase).
FileAudit supports the following database systems:
To facilitate FileAudit evaluation, the installation package integrates an "MS Access database" to archive all file access events. This free database type is limited to 2 GB by design.
We invite you to check the database size evolution during the first days using FileAudit to confirm that the database system you have chosen is correctly designed for your environment.
