Windows Audit File Access

Centralized audit logs ensure accurate and comprehensive information from across the organization, not just a single server. Quick answers can be given to who did what, when and from where.

With a simple click on a specific user or particular file/folder, all access events (and access attempts) performed
in the previous 4 weeks are displayed, alongside statistics on usage, deletions and accesses denied.

Full Access History

Customize scheduled reports according to multiple criteria.
For example choose one or many access types, select an IP source address
or single out a particular Active Directory group of users.

FileAudit consolidates access events from multiple Windows File Servers and Cloud Storage Providers and automatically records them into a fully-documented, searchable SQL Server, SQLite or Microsoft Access database for future reference.

FileAudit also simplifies audit maintenance, allowing you to schedule regular audit maintenance on audited servers and paths. These maintenance tasks check that your audit configurations haven’t been modified or overwritten by a GPO, and reconfigure them if necessary.

Predefined Reports

Predefined Reports

Comprehensive File Access
