    software that creates an audit trail of file activity and other sensitive information

    I need a software that protect sensitive information by reporting attempts to access and modify files and folders, providing information about who did what and when. At the same time creates an audit trail of file activity and other sensitive information where access controls are required. Is there a software for this?

    The answer likely depends on the Operating System (OS).
    And, it may very with the OS Version and with the file system being used. Example file systems FAT32, NTFS, ext2, or ext3.

    I'm expecting shirleygreet to show up real soon now to "recommend" their pet site, or for ms rusk to post the same as a result of their "research".

    I'm tired of their MO, and both will wind up banned if greet shows up.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Do you have a budget? Tripwire has a pretty good reputation.
