The focus again this week is on reporting and the types of things you can find with LANGuardian. Another use case that comes up often is how to identify the users that have accessed a specific file. Take the file Patient Contact Details for example, the steps to identify who viewed this file are as follows:
  1. Open the Windows File Shares :: Top Fileservers and clients report
  2. Specify the filename with the Path filter (Path -> matches regexp -> Patient Contact Details.mdb)
  3. Click View

In the screenshot below, we can see that the source shown is the client IP address. The View Report with Usernames button displays the report in username format.

If you have any questions about File Activity Monitoring, or indeed any aspect of LANGuardian reporting, please contact us on at any time.
