Baseline File Integrity Monitor

Overview Baseline monitors file integrity and security. Monitored systems run a client application that records information such as file ownership and permissions, along with an MD5 hash of file contents, and transmits this data to the baseline server. The baseline server compares the client’s most recent data to previous data snapshots and reports any differences.
