FIM is the capability to monitor files and directories on a server for changes to content, permissions, or both. Introduced in 2005, real-time file integrity monitoring goes beyond "periodic" or scan-based file integrity monitoring, to more effectively meet Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance.

Until now, meeting the file integrity monitoring (FIM) requirements of the PCI DSS has been difficult. Previous tools have merely provided "periodic" file integrity monitoring, using resource-intensive scans. McAfee Integrity Monitor eliminates this problem with real-time file integrity monitoring, which continuously detects all changes, with a very low impact on resources. Real-time FIM provides greater information about every change, including the user and program used to make the change. It also eliminates the need to perform scan after scan on servers, databases, and network devices. McAfee Integrity Monitor provides this level of monitoring across the broadest set of platforms.

When a file is changed inappropriately, and then changed back, it creates a transient compliance violation. Periodic FIM solutions are unable to detect this violation. Because McAfee Integrity Monitor is continuous, it captures every change, and alerts you if there is a transient violation - even if that change is subsequently reversed.

McAfee Integrity Monitor captures details about every change, including the exact time of the change, who was logged into the machine at the time, what processes (like editors) were running, and if the change was made manually or by an authorized program. This enables rapid investigation of change-related issues.

Because McAfee Integrity Monitor delivers continuous monitoring, it captures every single change. This is important for sustaining compliance, because it allows you to see where your compliance policies are being challenged, and addresses inappropriate change at the source.

Periodic scans of the entire system can be expensive and resource-intensive because of the performance impact it can have on applications. By contrast, McAfee Integrity Monitor has negligible impact to applications, because the continuous approach to scanning only deals with the changes that are happening in real-time.

McAfee Integrity Monitor allows organizations to establish configuration standards for network devices, and provides the capability to monitor the compliance of the devices in real-time. The software restores devices to known configurations, and provides detailed audit trails by user. Devices can be manually added, or discovered using simple network management protocol (SNMP).

Deployed in over 100 countries across 5 continents, McAfee's real-time file integrity monitoring is the preferred solution for meeting PCI and operational control requirements
