File audit software

Maintaining secure files and ensuring compliance requires effective file auditing. Organizations need to track who accesses their files, what changes are made, and when these activities occur. That provides the visibility and insights they need to spot security incidents. ADAudit Plus takes this further with centralized Windows and NAS file auditing and advanced behavior analytics to detect file security threats.

  •  Windows file auditing
  •  NAS auditing
  •  Detailed audit trails
  •  Ransomware response
  •  Access anomaly detection
  •  Compliance reporting

Real-time Windows file audit software

  • Stay on top of who changed what file, when the change was performed, and where it was initiated using detailed reports that track every file action, including creations, reads, modifications, deletions, moves, and copy-and-paste activities.
  • Audit file renaming and moving actions more easily and with greater context, with details on the previous and current locations and names of files once the actions are performed.
  • Get details on which permission value has been modified as well as the permission settings before and after the change by tracking changes to bject access permissions and the types of access allowed on your servers.
  • View ADAudit Plus' built-in reports for failed file and folder access attempts to identify recurring issues or potential security threats. You can summarize failed read, write, and delete events and gain insights into access trends.
  • Build your own alerts or use preconfigured alert profiles to notify stakeholders of critical events, such as activities by specific users or in particular files and changes outside of business hours.

Multi-vendor NAS auditing on a single console

  • Gain unified visibility into file access attempts across enterprise storage devices. With detailed file auditing across your hybrid storage environment, you can ensure effective compliance auditing and threat detection.
  • Comprehensively audit users' file activities across your Windows, NetApp, EMC (including VNX, VNXe, Celerra, Unity, and Isilon), Synology, Huawei, Hitachi, QNAP, Amazon FSx for Windows file, and Azure file storage systems—all on one console.
  • Ensure you maintain consistency when submitting insights to stakeholders about activities in your file storage environment with unified auditing and consolidated audit reports.
  • Empower your team with the incident response capabilities they need to secure your data, like instant email and SMS alerts, and ensure threats have nowhere to hide.
  • Collate audit information from across your hybrid storage environment in one database, and implement central log retention and archiving policies with longer storage periods than individual storage vendors.

Improved change visibility and accountability

  • Maintain long-term records of file activities for later reference, historical analysis, and more, ensuring that audit data is available for analysis even months after it is generated.
  • Use historical logs to forensically reconstruct the sequence of events leading up to and during a breach to understand its scope and first point of compromise. Then implement effective incident response measures.
  • Track and log user activities and access to critical resources to maintain user accountability. This helps organizations deter insider threats, enforce security policies, and maintain the transparency of user actions.
  • Ensure data fidelity in security operations by providing a reliable, consistent source of audit information across your hybrid storage environment. This fidelity aids in effective threat detection, breach analysis, and incident response.
  • Maintain detailed audit trails to easily meet the requirements mandated by various compliance regulations.

Rapid ransomware mitigation

  • Set threshold-based alerts for file access and modification events so that alerts are triggered when unusual or excessive access attempts are detected. These alerts help your security teams identify potential ransomware attacks in real time.
  • Trigger automated, predefined response actions upon detecting potential ransomware-related mass file activities. When it comes to ransomware, rapid responses can mean the difference between containment and escalation.
  • Leverage UBA algorithms to analyze user behavior patterns and identify suspicious increases in file access and modification events, which are common signs of ransomware. This helps you spot ransomware attacks early in their execution.
  • Determine which files and folders were potentially modified by ransomware following an attack. This information is crucial for prioritizing data recovery efforts and assessing the overall impact of the attack.
  • Streamline the incident response process by automatically creating and managing incident tickets on your IT service management platform when ransomware-related activities are detected.

UBA-powered activity insights

  • Establish a baseline of normal user behavior over time, recording details such as which files are accessed, how frequently, and by whom. You can use this baseline as a reference point for what is considered typical behavior within the organization.
  • Dynamically adapt to changing user behavior patterns using ADAudit Plus' UBA engine. As users' activities evolve, the system adjusts its behavioral profiles to reflect these changes. This ensures that the anomaly detection system remains effective over time.
  • Use machine learning and statistical algorithms to create behavioral profiles for each user with the UBA engine. This profiling takes into account factors like the time of access and number of access attempts.
  • Track the file access behavior of users and report when this behavior deviates significantly from established baselines. These deviations can include accessing files during nonstandard hours or attempting to access files outside of their sanctioned reach.

Streamlined compliance audits

  • Leverage the built-in, regulation-specific file audit reports to simplify mandated audits, reduce compliance-related overhead, and avoid the risk of noncompliance—all without the need for extensive customization.
  • Automate file audit report generation at specified intervals to ensure that essential compliance reports are generated regularly. Scheduled reports can be delivered to stakeholders and auditors as needed.
  • Create reports that align precisely with the requirements of your industry or a regulation's framework with ADAudit Plus' rich library of pre-built reports along with the option to create custom reports.
  • Immediately notify stakeholders, security teams, or compliance officers via email or SMS when high-risk actions occur, such as unauthorized access to critical files, to address compliance issues proactively.
  • Access and present historical audit data during audits or regulation inspections, demonstrating ongoing compliance.
