File Integrity Monitoring

File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) is a foundational control that involves analyzing operating system and application software files to determine if and when they have changed, how they changed and who made the change using a verification method between a current file state and a known baseline.

Over the past decade, FIM requirements have made their way into various compliance requirements including PCI-DSS, SOX (Sarbanes-Oxley Act), FISMA, HIPAA, SANS and other regulatory mandates with a "check the box mentality". The fact of the matter is that FIM alone as a detective control lacks additional functionality to guarantee continuous compliance and assurance on an ongoing basis.

Are all FIM solutions created equal?

Traditional FIM Solutions
Traditional FIM solutions take a very narrow look at Integrity and the unknown or unsuspecting consequence of “baselines” as they pertain to security breaches and checking the box of compliance mandates. They simply establish a baseline to determine if any additions, modification or deletions have been made to the target files or directories and alert on those changes.

So What Makes NNT Different From Other FIM Solutions?

NNT puts the "I" in FIM!

NNT has introduced a number of revolutionary concepts into its suite of products giving FIM the “Integrity” element it is sadly absent in other ‘so called’ FIM solutions. It also solves the issue of “noise” and "integrity drift" while delivering the necessary manageability and scalability where traditional solutions fall short.

Noise Reduction

Noise Reduction
NNT has developed a unique intelligent change control technology which is proven to reduce change noise as much as 99% leaving only unknown, unwanted or unauthorized changes highlighted .

Integrity Drift

Prevent Integrity Drift
NNT has a white-list database of over 9 billion known and trusted files in its Fast Cloud Integrity Assurance product that can validate and verify the integrity and authenticity of system and application files in real-time.


NNT’s modern, componentized architecture can support at a minimum 10 times more devices with a single console than any competitive FIM solution. This solves the problem of having multiple consoles deployed to manage what a single NNT console can provide.

Continuous Compliance and Assurance

Continuous Compliance & Assurance
NNT can deliver continuous compliance in real-time...whatever the standards, regulations or policies. If systems deviate, NNT provides descriptive details on how to rectify the compliance requirement so the issue will no longer present itself.


NNT provides a state-of-the-art FIM solution.
Traditional FIM and SIEM FIM simply won’t measure up!
