PA File Sight

PA File Sight is a file monitoring software that will help you determine who is reading from and writing to important files. It can tell you when a new file or folder is created or renamed. And, with our file watcher, when a file or folder gets deleted, PA File Sight can tell you who did it and what computer they did it from (IP address and computer name).
Besides file access auditing and logging actions, the Ultra Edition helps you further by providing historical reports to help see what happened earlier, whether you chose to be notified or not. AND it lets you alert on user usage patterns (reading X files in Y time for example) to help detect file copying activity.

Centralized Management for Ultra Edition
PA File Sight 5.4 is enterprise ready. Easily push out monitoring Satellites to watch remote servers and report back to a central system. Administer the system from anywhere.
Many compliance mandates require auditing file access and ensuring file integrity. PA File Sight can help meet those requirements, including those listed below:
PCI (Payment Card Industry) DSS 10.5.5, 11.5, 12.9.5
SOX (Sarbanes-Oxley) DS5.5
GLBA 16 CFR Part 314.4(b) and (3)

ISO 27001/27002 12.3, 12.5.1, 12.5.3, 15.3
PA File Sight can monitor log files, even files that were opened before PA File Sight started. In addition, it can alert on writes (changes) to files, but ignore the expected appends to log files.
