Ultra vs Lite
Ultra and Lite are both powerful, but they are different.
Both Ultra and Lite can:
|Monitor: File activities (reads, writes, creates, deletes, moves, renames)|| || |
|Alert: Real-time alerts via email, write to a log file, write to Event Log, play sound, call a URL, send Syslogs or SNMP Traps, etc.|| || |
|Information: Accessed file, user account, user IP address*, file operation, date and time|| || |
Only Ultra can:
|Database: Write file, user account, user IP address, file operation, date and time to an embedded SQLite or Microsoft SQL Server database|| || |
|Reports: Generate reports over a period of time using the above database (Lite users would need to write to a text log file and then manually search the log file)|| || |
|Supports Endpoints: Supports File Sight Endpoints|| || |
|Advanced Alerting: Alert on advanced usage patterns (like someone reading 15 files within 1 minute -- probably a file copy operation or a ransomware attack)|| || |
|Central Management: Manage multiple PA File Sight installations from a single central console|| || |
|Block External Drives: Has the Drive Sight monitor which can prevent external drives (USB, etc) from attaching to a server|| || |
