A mandatory tool for compliance-burdened organizations

File Reporter helps you quickly discover who in the organization has access to a particular folder or file on the network and how that access was derived. Determine every file that a specific user can access.

Intelligence to optimize storage for efficiency and compliance

Generate reports detailing the files being stored on potentially petabytes of network storage. Use this information to then initiate measures to retain, restrict access to, move, archive, or delete the data.

A critical component of a file analysis strategy

An objective of file analysis is getting your “data glut” under control. It begins with defining the contents of your “dark data,” and then determining which files to retain, which files to archive, and which files to delete.
