Does anyone know of software that will allow an network admin detect or stop mass downloads of data internally?
The situation is this, a medium size client uses shared network drive for storing documents, collaboration etc. While the network is secure, if an employee goes rogue they could download the entire contents of all the shared drives and then leave the company with valuable information.
While we know we cant stop certain things from occurring, it's a scenario that unless you have all the right pieces, the data doesn't make sense and no single individual needs all the data at the same time.
Yes we are aware of setting up permissions etc, but this is a worst case scenario that we are trying to avoid or at least know of an occurence.
Essentially, if someone where to do it, we don't need to stop them, just know that they did it in case they leave the company the next day for legal reasons.
