File Integrity Monitoring

Organizations are leveraging multiple tools to satisfy compliance requirements, ensuring critical files maintain their integrity. Each tool has added costs in licensing, implementation, ongoing management, and training. To combat this bloat, Alert Logic is adding File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) to our MDR platform in order to detect unauthorized change events to critical files that may hide attacks or malicious insider activity. This includes integrity of system directories, registry keys, and values on the operation system.

With File Integrity Monitoring, you can:

  • Understand when critical files have been modified or removed
  • Augment an investigation with additional context
  • Address PCI compliance mandates DSS 10.5.5 &11.5
