The increased data security requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation means businesses have to protect data from unlawful processing and loss or destruction.
If you’re struggling with how to ensure and maintain compliance, you’re not alone. But there’s good news, meeting the GDPR’s strict requirements is a lot easier with LogPoint’s “out-of-the-box” GDPR features for compliance monitoring and reporting.
LogPoint allows you to quickly detect unusual behavior in networks and applications to prevent misuse and data breaches with GDPR compliance monitoring. With static rules to detect the knowns, machine learning and advanced analytics to detect “as-is” and unusual activity in the network, it’s much easier to maintain compliance.
With LogPoint, you can:
- Spot and track unauthorized network or systems access
- Identify unusual patterns or rogue employee actions on an individual level
- Empower your security team with analytics
- Enrich and route logs with sensitive data to secure repositories
File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) is a compliance cornerstone. LogPoint’s native FIM features alert you whenever a new directory or file is created, deleted, renamed or altered in its content, so you can maintain an overview of your sensitive assets. Download our brochure to learn more:

LogPoint’s GDPR reports provide critical insight into how your network is actually performing. The reports support GDPR compliance reporting by helping to explain critical data flows and transactions on data, while providing the means to evaluate observed baselines and known-bad behavior from LogPoint GDPR compliance monitoring features. With this accurate, real-time view of the network, you can focus on areas that are non-compliant and plan for the future (or “to-be”) architecture by defining a transition plan.
