We are an IT Consultant looking to add some additional security for some of our clients. A few clients have been asking, "Show me everyone who has ever accessed this file". Well, we can't really do that without a 3rd party tool.
What we are looking for:
Show a detailed logs of who accessed a network share or file
- PC Name
- Read or Write
The software needs to run as a service so we can install it on network file servers and have it run without being logged on.
The logs should be searchable from within the software and take search parameters, such as date/time, username, filename
I have tried several tools so far and none seem to meet all the requirements. Some just downright do not work at all or show a user suddenly accessed every file in a share instantly. Or do not log the changes made to files at all.
We are looking for production, well-known software.
