File server auditing is a key requirement for organizations that rely on critical file servers or storage devices to store documents and network applications. Inappropriate access and accidental changes to files, folder structure, permissions, file shares, and other objects can significantly impact your users and infrastructure, causing loss or exposure of sensitive data, security threats, and Access Governance failures. Native file system auditing lacks many important features and doesn't have reporting capabilities (download Summary: Limitations of Native Tools to learn more).
Powered by AuditAssurance™ technology, Netwrix Auditor reports file server changes and access events. The product generates reports on changes and access to file servers, including changes and access attempts to files, folders, shares, and permissions.
