Why do you need a file change monitoring tool?

  • Most regulations, including PCI DSS and HIPAA, recommend using file change detection software to track unauthorized modification of critical files.
  • To reduce the time-to-discovery of security incidents on your file servers, you have to monitor file changes in real time and see exactly who's changed what file, when, and from where.
  • However, no IT admin has time to analyze hundreds of logs manually. DataSecurity Plus does the hard work for you by auditing file changes and finding trends. It also generates detailed reports about every change made to your files and folders.
