Enable and Monitor File Auditing

Our management has requested that we being auditing all file access as soon as possible.
They want to have a record of which user accessed which file at what time.
This needs to be applied to our entire shared filesystem

I've read that you can enable auditing on individual files, can you enable this on an entire filesystem using Group Policy?

Does it dump these logs into the windows security log or?

What tools do you guys use in house for monitor and record Windows event logs?

You can later create filter in event viewer & enable email or however you want it to show up.

That seems to be exactly what we're looking for but the security logs are going to inflate if we don't enable circular logging.

What applications are available for event log archiving?

Well you can export the Event Log & then keep them for as long as you want, but this is a manual process & if you are not cleaning the logs they should stay there.

A manual process for 50+ servers isn't really ideal.

Does anyone use 3rd party software for event log management?
