Overview of NetApp filer auditing

NetApp filer network-attached storage (NAS) devices, also known as NetApp fabric-attached storage (FAS), are storage systems that use NetApp's proprietary operating system, ONTAP. A vFiler unit is a partition of a storage system and the associated network resources. Each vFiler partition appears to the user as a separate storage system on the network, and functions as a storage system.

ManageEngine ADAudit Plus, a user behavior analytics (UBA)-driven change auditor, provides real-time visibility into your NetApp 7Mode/vFiler CIFS servers. It delivers detailed reports on user activity in NetApp files and shares, analyzes permission changes, and automates instant responses to security incidents.
