File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) alerts you to changes in critical system files, configuration files, and content files. Xcitium Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) combines FIM with other essential security capabilities to meet compliance requirements and get complete security visibility in a single, easy-to-use solution.


Change can be good.

File Integrity Monitoring: But not for a security professional.

Changes on critical servers can signal a breach. For that reason, it’s critical to use File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) for your critical servers so you’re alerted as changes happen. In fact, if those servers are in-scope for compliance, PCI DSS requirements 10.5.5 and 11.5 state you must install file integrity monitoring software in order to pass your audit.

With Xcitium, you have continual assurance of the integrity of security configurations along with complete visibility and control of all change for your continuous monitoring, change audit and compliance demands. FIM tracks who has accessed sensitive data on in-scope systems as well as what they did to that data. This audit trail allows you to validate that the changes were authorized, expected, and did not jeopardize the integrity and security of the data.
