KBI 311737 New Feature: Audit Unauthorized File/Folder Access For Reporting


Argent Advanced Technology 5.1A-1901-B or above


Monday, 18 March 2019


By default, Argent for Compliance only reports file/folder changes that are actually happening

In the backend, the Engine only processes File Audit Success Events

The implementation prevents excessive database usage

However, it could be vital to report the unauthorized access for critical servers

Argent Advanced Technology 5.1A-1901-B has been enhanced to implement the feature

The feature can be selectively turned on individually for each licensed server using License Node Properties

The unauthorized access Events would show up in Compliance reports as entries ‘Failed to access object (file_or_folder_path)’
