Introduction to Cygna Auditor for File System

Product Overview

Your company's file systems 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. The lack of centralized auditing and reporting prevent you from seeing the full scope of your file system activity.

Cygna Auditor for 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.
