SearchInform has announced a solution for file system auditing. FileAuditor is a DCAP (data-centric audit and protection) product that allows businesses to control files containing critical data, inform managers about changes made to a file (creating, editing, moving, deleting, etc.) and make shadow copies of recent revisions. The system demonstrates who made these changes and detects access rights violation.
The capabilities of the software are not limited to files only. File folders are subject to analysis and the solution identifies content and modified access rights. A specialist responsible for risk mitigation will have a grasp on what is going on in a file system. This solves the problem of controlling transfer of confidential information to users who do not have access rights to it.
The company has developed the product to call attention to issues occurring in case a file is accessed by an unauthorised employee, edited and copied, and whether it contains critical information. Confidential data sometimes happens to be accessible to hundreds of people instead of a few who are allowed to use it.
“SearchInform FileAuditor allows you to clean up your file system and quickly respond to dangerous situations. For example, an internal corporate incident was discovered by one of our clients – a large retailer – while using the trial version of the product. A market research file, costing thousands of dollars, was accessed by 300 employees instead of a few dozen. If the module had been installed before, the incident would have been prevented,” says Sergey Ozhegov, CEO of SearchInform.
The system detects locations of vulnerable data by enabling any type of search: by phrases, by regular expressions, by attributes (size, location, etc.). It is possible to create complex queries, for example, search by a piece of text and a file attribute at the same time, as well as by selected directories and computers. SearchInform FileAuditor performs data analysis both on local PCs and on servers, which reduces the cost of purchasing data storage equipment.
