Automate and simplify SOX compliance using DataSecurity Plus

Enacted in response to multiple corporate accounting scandals, the Sarbanes Oxley Act (SOX) (also known as the Public Company Accounting Reform and Investor Protection Act) safeguards investors from fraudulent activities involving internal employees.

The DataSecurity Plus advantage


Audit and analyze file and folder access


Analyze files and disk space

The Access Audit report provides detailed information on the quintessential Four W's—who accessed what, when, and from where. This will help you keep track of all accesses and changes. The Access Analysis report provides a summary view of accesses and changes, which can help you detect access trends. The File Analysis report helps isolate files that are old, unused, unmodified, large, hidden, or non-business; making data cleanup easier. The Disk Analysis report provides visual insight into disk space usage and trends, facilitating optimization of disk space; it also reveals properties of files and folders.

Actively respond to security breaches


Audit access rights

Detect security breaches as and when they occur with alerts that get emailed instantly. Define threshold limits for mass access events such as malware attacks. Examine share and security permissions of files and folders and prevent access exploitation.

Minimize incident response times

Become proactive with real-time file and folder access and change auditing. Continuously monitor and get notified about critical activities.
