Netwrix Auditor for Windows File Servers
Complete visibility into changes, data access and data usage on file servers
Netwrix Auditor for Windows File Servers delivers complete visibility into everything happening on your file servers. It provides actionable audit data about all changes made to files, folders, shares and permissions; reports on both successful and failed access attempts; and enables file analysis reporting for improved data security and information management.
Establish and prove compliance with continuous file server auditing
Quickly satisfy both internal and external auditors by answering questions such as who changed file permissions or who deleted files from the file server. This information can be stored in the two-tiered (file-based + SQL database) AuditArchive™ for more than 10 years.
Prepare audit reports and troubleshoot unwanted changes on file servers faster
Overcome the limitations of native auditing tools with Netwrix file server reporting software. Instead of struggling with time-consuming and error-prone manual process, IT administrators can quickly produce reports for stakeholders on changes to files, permissions and data access attempts. They can also quickly identify, investigate and remediate problems — for example, by detecting the unwanted deletion of a business-critical file and restoring it from backup before the change interferes with someone's work.
Detect and investigate unauthorized file server configuration changes and data access events before a data leak occurs
Identify suspicious activity that might put data security at risk using out-of-the-box reports on file server changes. You can view additions, deletions and modifications of files and shares; changes to file and folder permissions; and file access attempts (both successful and failed). Then use Interactive Search to dig through file server audit data to investigate the activity further and determine how to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.
Make better information management decisions for unstructured data
Quickly detect excessive access rights to find and remediate potentially overexposed data to prevent a data leak. Prevent data sprawl and facilitate cleanup for improved user productivity and optimized storage by identifying empty folders and duplicate or unused files, along with their size and owners.
