Track File Changes with FlexiSPY's File Auditing Software

Track file changes with FlexiSPY's File Activity Monitoring Software. Imagine you're an employer with a valuable, proprietary database of customer information stored on your company's computers. You suspect that someone may be accessing and copying that data without your permission, but you have no way of knowing for sure. With FlexiSPY, you can track file changes in real-time on your PC or Mac, and protect your company's valuable data.

But it's not just employers who need to keep an eye on file activity. Parents can also use FlexiSPY to monitor their children's computer usage and ensure they're not accessing inappropriate or harmful content.

Once installed on the computer you wish to monitor, FlexiSPY logs all file and folder activity and uploads them to your secure online dashboard. From then you can know anytime a file is created, copied, moved, renamed, deleted, or transferred. This allows you to act swiftly to address any unauthorized file activity and prevent data leaks.

Why you Should Track a Computer's File and Folder Activity

As cyber-threats continue to rise, File and Folder Activity Monitoring has become a vital part of any data security strategy for businesses serious about protecting their IP and employee data. Being able to track file changes is also an important parental control tool for parents to help protect their children from online threats.

Benefits for Employers

Do you suspect that someone is misusing company computers, or has secretly accessed or deleted files on your private laptop? Use FlexiSPY to perform a file audit and to monitor folder access and file changes on Windows and Mac computers in real-time.

With our file access auditing feature, you can detect malicious activity such as when a dangerous file is being copied and shared or when a sensitive folder is moved outside of your organization's network.

FlexiSPY gives you immediate insight when File Activity occurs at times when nobody should have been accessing a computer. Pair this with our User Log on Activity Feature and you'll be able to identify any wrongdoers and take action to prevent violations in the future.

Benefits for Parents

Video and image files downloaded to any computer can contain harmful viruses and malware. In fact, hackers are known to embed Trojan viruses on music-file sharing networks, pornographic, and online gambling websites. Is it possible that your child downloads files or folders from these sources?

If your child downloads a music file or porno and infects your family computer, you'd have no idea until your machine slowed to the point of becoming unusable, or you start receiving erroneous charges on your credit card. As a parent, you can prevent these attacks by knowing when a file is downloaded, renamed, or moved to hide its' true contents.

To add to this, most children are more tech-savvy than their parents and will find ways to hide their computer activity, this includes renaming downloaded files and folders. To get ahead of this, you can install FlexiSPY for computers to always know when file activity occurs.

Benefits for Individuals

FlexiSPY helps you keep track of all files and folders on your computer, letting you know when anything is edited, copied, deleted, or moved. This feature can be especially useful for individuals who need to secure their digital documents for work or personal reasons.
