Server Access Monitoring
Posted on 2004-11-30
I'm trying to find an inexpensive (if it's possible) product or maybe a built-in feature that would log what files were accessed and by whom on a Netware 6 server.
The purpose of this is to keep track of what files our users are accessing and to make sure they aren't looking at files they really shouldn't be looking at. I’m sure you are probably thinking 'Why not just remove the rights to said files?' but in our situation that isn't very feasible because there may be a time when they need to access those files at the drop of a hat and it would be a nightmare to manage who has access to what. At least for the time being.
I'm not sure if this is possible but it would be nice to find a product that would keep track of what they did, open, copy, etc. to the file as well. That sounds like something that would need to be done on the workstation.
I have looked at Nsure Audit but it's +$8,000 and that is too much for our budget.
