monitor network shares

I am looking for software that will show who is acccessing network shares, what permission they have. Does not have to be free software. Compliance issue we need to monitor shares



For this you can install a complete auditing package which will audit your AD, GPO, File server, Exchange Server, SQL Server and network devices with all compliance reporting

In order to audit you need to first enable audit policy for audit object access on the OU where all PC are placed or in default Domain Policy.

Once the policy is defined you can enable auditing on file and folder,etc.

I would also recommend to enable minimal audit setting on files and folder as this will create strom of events. Auditing can generate a large amount of data.Because the security log is limited in size, select the files and folders to be audited carefully. Also, consider the amount of disk space that you want to devote to the security log. The maximum size for the security log is defined in Event Viewer.

I would recommend not to configure the same on all PC instead configure the same on critical PC,normally for shares & if same PC are shared by multiple users depending upon the requirement.
