A New Path to File Integrity Monitoring

A Better and Less Expensive FIM Approach

File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) was one of the very first cybersecurity tools. It was the first to provide indicators of compromise recording files changes and alterations. Change alerts provide enhanced visibility to systems administrators. The capability enables them to investigate changes and determine if an attacker has gained entry into their enterprise systems. Passwords and firewalls keep hackers out while FIM alerts you when hackers are inside.

Over time, FIM has become integrated into a host of industry standards both explicitly and implicitly including PCI DSS, FISMA, and NERC-CIP. In addition, FIM has key features required for HIPPA and SOX compliance. OSSEC is an open source enterprise detection and response (EDR) solution that has offered FIM capabilities for more than a decade. PCI and HIPAA compliance along with Atomic Secured OSSEC’s broad feature set beyond FIM are key drivers for OSSEC adoption today.

 

Enterprise FIM That Works at Scale

Atomic Secured OSSEC is a powerful engine for monitoring, alerting and response that tracks and captures system file changes. In addition, another key requirement for enterprises using FIM is that it can scale to monitor millions of files distributed across tens of thousands of systems and can integrate across the entire enterprise. Atomic Secured OSSEC was designed to scale and integrate easily into existing infrastructures. Not only does it monitor millions of files in real time, it also saves and dates file copies for non-repudiation and reversion to protect against loss.
