    File Security, aka FAM, allows customers to monitor access to sensitive files, and allows for auditing and alerting.
    It is commonly deployed using an Imperva agent but can run in sniffing mode.

    It support CIFS file system, most commonly found with Windows serves but other platforms also use CIFS.

    FAM also offers a file explorer which can use the credentials of an authorized user to access the server and allow for navigation through the file system 

    The main task is to know what needs to be monitored/audited and create the appropriate policies

    Thanks for the reply Phil.

    Does FAM also encrypt the files or is it simply monitoring and reporting on user access to the files?

    If you have a link that provides FAM details, including some idea of policy configuration UI etc. it would be appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Steve

    FAM does not perform encryption  
    It is a monitoring solution for file access

    I would recommend the following two links for configuration overview
