Audit Simple and Advanced
NTFS Permissions on Windows Servers

FileAudit allows you to have a centralized view of the
NTFS permissions (simple and advanced) of your files and folders.

To do so, it scans all the audited paths you have defined and saves the information in a snapshot. You can then filter the results by column (by account or permission type for example) to only focus on the data you need.

Key benefits:

  • Prevent unauthorized access.
  • Get a centralized list of file and folder permission per account.
  • Significantly reduce the workload related to monitoring permissions to files and folders.
  • Focus on what’s important thanks to filters and scheduled reports.
  • Meet compliance regulations such as GDPR, HIPAA, SOX, FISMA.

Monitor NTFS Permission Changes

Monitor NTFS permission changes

With FileAudit, you can set up alerts on permission changes. The alert will give you the name of the user and the name of the file/folder affected by the change. By scheduling regular snapshots, you can then compare two snapshots (one before the alert and one after) to see what changes have been made.

View File and Folder Properties

FileAudit allows you to have a complete and centralized view of your file and folder properties such as size, attributes, creation date, last modified date and last access date.
