Cygna Auditor for File System

Windows file servers are treasure troves of all sorts of data which makes them high value targets for bad actors. Auditor for File Systems enables organizations to protect critical business resources and intellectual property by tightening security and control over Windows file systems.

After a long and successful partnership with Cygna Labs, based in Miami Beach, USA, N3K has acquired the company as of February 21, 2019. Alexander Häcker, CEO of N3K Group, believes the acquisition as the next milestone in the development of both companies.

File servers are the repositories of unstructured data in organizations. They can contain intellectual property, financial, personally identifiable information among other sensitive data. Monitoring file and folder activity for unusual or unauthorized access across many servers is impossible with native tools. The visibility Cygna Auditor for File System provides on these file servers is an essential component of an effective security strategy. Cygna Auditor for File System allows you to configure what part of the file system to monitor and at what level. This allows you to tailor the level of audit detail to the sensitivity of the information so important actions don’t get overlooked.

Real-time centralized file, folder and share auditing

Monitor and audit all Windows file system changes in real-time. Track who changed what, when and where each change was made with before and after values.

Real-time alerts

Be notified in real-time of critical changes that may require immediate attention such as permission changes to files, folders and shares.

Monitor File and Folder Access

Monitor data access attempts by reporting on both successful and failed read attempts across multiple file servers and shares.

Integrated event forwarding

Integrate with SIEM solutions to forward Cygna Auditor events to Splunk, ArcSight and others.

Centralized web-based management console

Search from anywhere using a web browser, no need for an installed console. Query and report across on prem, hybrid cloud and multi-cloud environments with a simple to use interface.

Auditor reporting

Generate comprehensive reports for best practices and regulatory compliance mandates for GDPR, SOX, PCI-DSS, HIPAA, FISMA, GLBA and more.

Role based access control (RBAC)

Simple access configuration that allows users to only have the necessary rights to perform their jobs on the information they are allowed to see.

Efficient auditing

Get rid of traditional auditing limitations and capture change information without the need for native audit logs. No need to set SACLs and GPOs to capture desired events or miss events because the logs rolled over.
