Flexible and Reliable Server and Network Monitoring

Monitor file system access with file audit sensors

Knowing who accessed files or directories is indispensable for large companies. But keeping an eye on file accesses manually is way too time-consuming. That is where our file audit sensor solution comes in handy:

Once auditing is enabled on your target system, all types of accesses on the configured files and directories are logged in the Windows security event log. Using the file audit sensor, ServerSentinel can inform you once an event is written to the event log.

The sensor shows you information about who accessed files or directories and if the action was authorized as well as the type of access.

Where do the File Audit Sensors come in handy?

With its file audit sensors, ServerSentinel has a very powerful feature to improve your company security even further.
