File Monitoring and Auditing

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.

Many compliance mandates require auditing file access and ensuring file integrity. PA File Sight can help meet those requirements, including those listed below:


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.

How to Get Started?

File monitoring doesn't need to be complicated. PA File Sight can be installed and configured in literally a minute or two. Specify a local path and some file types to watch and it will get to work immediately.

We are finished testing [PA Server Monitor] and are very pleased with every aspect of it ... [I like] routines for setup (could not be easier), pricing - compared to other products this is a bargain, interface, stability, reporting, and remote monitoring. The first week of use the program generated around a $1000 extra for us.
