monitor network usage
Posted on 2005-03-11
Greetings. I am an IT Specialist for a bank and my banks auditors want us to be able to monitor network usage (ie. who accesses what on our hard drives on our file servers [or similar]). We currently have no group policies (which we should). We have a "public" share on our file server which any one w/ a pc at work can access and we have a prviate folder set up for each employee. VLANs would be difficult to implement because in our branch office people often wear different hats throughout the day. We would also like to monitor internet usage. Maybe my best bet would be to implement group policies.
With cisco pix firewall, can you monitor and block internet usage based on ip/url? If so, this would solve my internet usage issues.
Thanks for any help.
