PowerBroker Auditor for File System:
Change Control and Compliance Reporting

The enterprise alternative for native file system auditing, it provides the monitoring, auditing and reporting required to mitigate the risks associated with delegated administration in regulated settings.

Real-Time Auditing And Security Compliance For File System

Your company's file system contains critical business resources, intellectual property, and other sensitive information. A single unintended change or case of inappropriate access can put your entire organization at risk, affecting productivity with service interruptions and risking the loss of corporate secrets, costly security breaches, and non-compliance. Yet, native auditing tools place unnecessary overhead on the server and are cumbersome, requiring enormous resources to search through vast amounts of audit entries. And, the lack of centralized auditing and reporting prevent you from seeing the full scope of your file system activity.

PowerBroker Auditor for Windows File System enables tighter security and control over File System resources across the enterprise. It provides real-time tracking, interactive analysis, and flexible reporting on all key share, file, and folder changes. Administrators can instantly know the "WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN" for every access and change event, and schedule reports for data owners to show them who is accessing and modifying their data.
