How to monitor server-shared file copies
Posted on 2006-11-01
I have a Windows Server 2000 which stores sensitive, valuable information, and many of my company's employees need to access the information. I need a way to monitor the number of files and bytes that each user reads/copies to their local machine (or through a VPN). My concern is that an employee could copy the entire folder to his machine, compress it, and email it to his personal email account or copy it to a CD/USB thumb drive, etc.
I would gladly pay for a 3rd party app, but I need alarms for file, number of bytes, and bytes-per-hour with email notifications preferably. I also must have limits on each of these parameters. And it must integrate with Windows server 2000.
I've been looking for a suitable application for many months now without success, so I hope someone can help.
I will award the points to the person with the most efficient, cost-effective suggestion.
