Complying with GDPR Article 32, which mandates the security of personal data processing, is a crucial responsibility for every organization. To aid organizations in meeting this requirement, EventLog Analyzer offers comprehensive solutions that guarantee the integrity, availability, and confidentiality of personal data.

It monitors all file activity, such as new file creation, existing file modifications, file renames, and deletions, to ensure that all changes made to executable files, folders, system configuration files, content files, zipped files, and zipped folders are thoroughly tracked, and any deviations from established baselines will trigger an alert.

Additionally, EventLog Analyzer conducts detailed audit trials of user logons and permission changes made to file servers that store personal data and consolidates all pertinent data in FIM reports. As a result, it assists organizations in ensuring that the confidentiality and integrity of their systems are not jeopardized.
