How to audit file activity in Change Auditor for NetApp
Change Auditor for NetApp helps ensure the security, compliance and control of your NetApp® files and folders. It monitors, audits, reports and alerts on all changes in real time, making NetApp monitoring easy. Now administrators can monitor, report on and analyze events and changes without complexity and fear of unknown security concerns. You will instantly know who made what change when and where, and from what originating workstation for enhanced NetApp security. You can then automatically generate intelligent, in-depth forensics for all change events for a complete auditing picture.
Simplify user threat detection by analyzing anomalous activity to rank the highest risk users in your organization, identify potential threats and reduce the noise from false positive alerts.
Correlate disparate IT data from numerous systems and devices into an interactive search engine for fast security incident response and forensic analysis. Include user entitlements and activity, event trends, suspicious patterns and more with rich visualizations and event timelines.
Tracks user and administrator activity with detailed information including who, what, when, where, which workstation and why for change events, plus original and current values for all changes.
Removes auditing limitations and captures change information without the need for native audit logs, resulting in faster results and significant savings of storage resources.
Provides the ability to manage, monitor and audit all file server changes from a single location, which streamlines management of multiple servers and locations to a single, easy-to-use console.
Generates comprehensive reports for best practices and regulatory compliance mandates for GDPR, SOX, PCI-DSS, HIPAA, FISMA, GLBA and more.
Provides instant, one-click access to all information on the change you're viewing and all related events, such as what other changes came from specific users and workstations, eliminating additional guesswork and unknown security concerns.
Easily integrate with SIEM solutions to forward Change Auditor events to Splunk, HP Arcsight or IBM QRadar. Additionally, Change Auditor integrates with Quest InTrust for long-term 20:1 compressed event storage and aggregation of native or third-party logs to reduce storage costs on SIEM forwarding and create a highly-compressed log repository.
Configures access so auditors can run searches and reports without making any configuration changes to the application, and without requiring the assistance and time of the administrator.
Enables the viewing, highlighting and filtering of change events and the relation of other events over the course of time in chronological order across your Windows environment for better understanding and forensic analysis of those events and trends.
Sends critical change and pattern alerts to email and mobile devices to prompt immediate action, enabling you to respond faster to threats even while you're not on site.
Searches from anywhere using a web browser and creates targeted dashboard reports to provide upper management and auditors with access to the information they need without having to understand architecture or administration.
