ScriptLogic Corporation Releases File System Auditor 2.0 as Solution for Monitoring File Server Activity to Assist With IT Security and Compliance

Administrators Capitalize on New Features for Tracking File Permission Changes, Streamlined Reporting, and Centralized Agent Management

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - May 29, 2007) - ScriptLogic® Corporation (, a leading provider of systems lifecycle management solutions for Microsoft® Windows®-based networks, today announced a new version of ScriptLogic's File System Auditor™ (FSA), a software product that reports and alerts on file activity on Windows 2000 and 2003 servers. New features in FSA version 2.0 create a comprehensive file auditing solution that IT administrators use to enhance overall IT security and to help report on file server compliance with industry and government regulations.

In addition to the existing features for reporting and alerting all modifications, deletions, creations and access attempts on Windows file servers, FSA 2.0 includes new features that expand the range of the solution. For example, FSA 2.0 can aid with monitoring and auditing file system events and through its comprehensive reporting tools, IT administrators can be notified in near real-time when permissions were altered. FSA 2.0 reports can now review permission changes, highlighting what changes were made, who made them and when they were made. FSA now automatically detects and treats a clustered set of servers as one entity for ease of management and reporting. Individual nodes can still be audited separately, as determined by the administrator.

"Customer interest in our file auditing solution is increasing, as they understand how the product can significantly help with a company's security and compliance efforts," said Nick Cavalancia, vice president of product marketing management at ScriptLogic. "The audit trail of file activity tells who accesses what, which is especially important for compliance reporting. Also, for security purposes an administrator can configure the product so that an alert is sent whenever a suspicious event occurs such as an 'access denied' message, or a modification in a folder full of security logs."

Other changes within FSA 2.0 improve the product's usability. FSA 2.0 offers a new slick user interface with intuitive controls. The product records all events on a central SQL database to streamline reporting, and an administrator can create from one console reports that encompass all servers being audited. In addition, FSA reports now support different time zones and various time and date formats, which is especially important for international companies that have servers and administrators in different time zones.

Finally, an FSA 2.0 administrator can centrally manage the installation and removal across all servers of the agent that facilitates the auditing service, with no reboots or interruption. This makes setup faster, provides for easier management of the agents, and reduces the effort required to establish auditing policies across an enterprise. FSA 2.0 is therefore easy to use even in environments that are sensitive to agent installation.

FSA 2.0 is available immediately and is a free upgrade for customers with current support contracts.
