Meeting the True Intent of File Integrity Monitoring

Meeting the True Intent of File Integrity Monitoring

Published Jun 4, 2019

File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) is technology that detects changes in files that may indicate a cyberattack. In many organizations, however, FIM mostly means noise: too many alerts and changes, no context around these changes, and little insight into whether a detected change actually poses a security risk.

This whitepaper discusses the key attributes of truly effective security file integrity monitoring, including:

  • Detecting changes in real-time
  • Identifying exactly what changed and who changed it
  • Determining which changes increase risk
  • Distinguishing between authorized and unauthorized changes
