Medium Priority

Last Modified: 2020-01-17
Points of My Scenario:
1. I am domain admin - Windows Server 2008 R2 domain controllers, but mixed member servers (2012 R2, and 2008 R2).
2. A Windows 2008 R2 member server needs to have a folder audited for failed access attempts.
3. Whenever a failure attempt occurs, an email containing the Security event log entry must be sent to a designated email address.

QUESTION: What built-in OR third-party approach/tools can be used to email the Security event log entry/entries arising from a failed access attempt on a folder/file?

This case may now be closed. The solution for the once-desired objective (email notifications when a folder is accessed) can be provided by Netwrix.
Thank you, Sean!

Sean provided me a solution (Netwrix). Management has decided to pursue an alternate path (with different objectives).
