Home/Understand/How to Comply with LogPoint

LogPoint as a tool for compliance automation

Meeting compliance can be costly and complicated. But that investment is minimal compared to the costs of fines, legal costs and a damaged reputation.

While regulations vary, compliance is usually tied to your ability to act according to audit requirements.

That means:

  • Identifying the risks your business faces
  • Designing and implementing controls to protect your business from those risks
  • Monitoring and reporting on the effectiveness of those controls
  • Resolving compliance difficulties as they occur
  • Advising on rules and controls

That’s a lot to take in – and there’s also the task of managing the mountains of log data you’re compiling. But don’t worry, we have a solution for this.

LogPoint AD User Management dashboard
LogPoint for User Activity Monitoring widget

User activity monitoring

User Activity Monitoring has long been the cornerstone of any efficient defense strategy. By design, LogPoint provides analysts with an intuitive and powerful tool to identify malicious activities, create alerts, dashboards, and reports so they can get an overview and counteract immediately. Primarily for data privacy and regulations, user activity monitoring focuses on activities associated with file access. LogPoint can monitor this using native object access audit records. Additionally, LogPoint’s FIM application monitors any access attempts to privileged file share systems and provides information on the type of access and the actions performed in the file. Additionally, the original and the altered checksums can also be compared to better understand access behavior.
