Quarterly Update: F.A.S.T Cloud Integration from NNT CEO & CTO

File Integrity Monitoring is essential to ensure the integrity of your security IT systems. Reporting these changes can be a headache though- how do you differentiate between 'good', planned changes, and 'bad', possibly malicious activity?
