16-06-2020 14:01:33


This feature lets you monitor activity related to the files on the computer, a network drive, or a removable drive. File types can be customised and selected to be monitored from a pre-defined list of file types. Additional extensions can be added under Custom Extensions for those which are not listed.
Files can be monitored for actions such as Copy, Delete, or Rename. Accordingly, a report for the file activity will be generated under the Reports Section.

Note: The File Activity Monitor feature is available for Windows and Mac OS clients only.

To configure the file activity monitor, follow these steps:

1. Log on to the Seqrite Endpoint Security Web console

2. Click Clients > Manage Policies

3. Select the policy to configure the File Activity Monitor

4. Check mark “Enable File Activity Monitor”

5. In the "Select File Types and Events to monitor within drives” area, place a check mark to select the drives to be monitored for file activity
