Linux file integrity monitoring
It's important to safeguard all data, but especially the critical configurations that are stored in Linux's file system. You can ensure that this data is secure with our file integrity monitoring (FIM) solution, EventLog Analyzer.
EventLog Analyzer scans, analyzes, and reports changes made to files, folders, and directories in Linux systems, thereby providing a critical layer of file and data security.
Real-time change detection
The EventLog Analyzer agent continuously monitors the files, folders, and directories specified in its monitoring profile, and it captures any data that has changed, along with details like which user was involved and what processes they used. You can monitor entire directory structures or single files and folders for events, such as:
- Creation, deletion, or renaming of files, folders, and directories
- Accessing of files and folders
- Changes to file and folder attributes
- Changes to the security settings of files, folders, or directories, such as permission changes
Detect illicit activity
If an intruder attacks your IT environment, you can identify which files have been altered. With this information, you can quickly assess the damage and begin your incident response.
Identify unintended changes
File changes are often made unintentionally by an employee or admin. Sometimes these changes are so insignificant that they go overlooked. Other times, they can cause security breaches or hinder business operations. File integrity monitoring helps you zero in on the changes, so you can roll them back or take other remediation measures.
Meet compliance mandates
With EventLog Analyzer, you can easily audit all changes and report on events that pertain to files and directories, ensuring that you remain in compliance with regulatory mandates such as the GDPR, GLBA, SOX, HIPAA, and PCI DSS.
