File Integrity Monitoring (FIM)
Is Your IT Infrastructures and Business Data Secure?
Abacode uses file integrity monitoring (FIM) as a mechanism for validating the integrity of an operating system and application software files. We do this by using a verification method between the current file state and a known, good baseline. This is one of the most powerful techniques used to secure IT infrastructures and business data against a wide variety of both known and unknown threats.
Why is File Integrity Monitoring important?
In todays world malicious attackers can cause mayhem inside your networks, they can change configuration files, application files and data, critical system data, and then delete event logs to hide everything they have touched in your system.
Having the ability to know who is and has accessed critical files and when changes have occurred is required by compliances and laws, such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, and GDPR. This is necessary to protect your organizations critical assets and data. The good news is that meeting these compliances and requirements with Abacode is easy. File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) automatically identifies anomalous file changes across your entire environment and notifies us the moment suspicious activity takes place on critical files. This allows our 24/7 SOC to take action right away and make sure your company remains compliant.
Meeting your compliance requirements has become as easy as a phone call.
Changes to files, configurations, and attribute across your infrastructure is a common practice, but hidden in the large amounts of daily changes can be the 1 or 2 that directly impact your file or configuration integrity. These types of changes can put your compliance stature and security infrastructure at risk, as it could indicate there is an attacker tampering with critical files to steal or leak confidential data.
Our 24/7 SOC agents watches carefully for file modification events on your assets and directly attributes them directly to your users. Our FIM software will alert our agents real time when a user edits, moves, or deletes a critical file or folder, allowing us to respond in real time.
