Auditing of user activity

An important feature for servers supporting file transfer is the ability to log user activity for security auditing. Audit logging is available in CompleteFTP Professional and Enterprise Editions.

Audit logging is easily configured through the audit log interface shown below. The audit logs that are produced can be inspected and monitored, allowing administrators to keep track of user logins and logouts, and which files are being transferred and their sizes. The log files are produced in a standard format, allowing scripts to be easily written for analysis or for generating alerts.
