Re: Auditing & Reporting Access to Files on File Server

Be careful when looking at File Integrity Monitor (FIM) solutions for access auditing problems. FIMs are great about 
alerting when something/someone changes a file that shouldn't be changed, but that's a far cry from accurately auditing 
regularly accessed files where you want to make sure you know who accessed them and whether they should be accessing 

DLP is more appropriate than FIM, in this regard. Or something specifically involved with file access auditing.

Also keep in mind a Windows environment doesn't do this well at all, even with auditing turned up. Real solutions are 
going to be forced to extend the OS/file system capabilities in order to give you the visibility you want. So things 
like a NAS or disparate shares can be challenging...
