Auditing and Reporting Module
EFT's Auditing and Reporting Module (ARM) captures all of the transactions passing through the EFT platform and then allows
you to query the data and view reports from EFT's Administrative console. You can analyze captured data immediately using the preconfigured reports,
or custom design your own with the included report designer.
EFT with ARM records the events between the server and client, then enables you to effectively search and present that information any way you
want. Use it for:
- Billing – Track usage and bill your clients more accurately.
- Statistical Analysis – Establish trends, find out who your most active customers are, or when demand is the highest.
- Troubleshoot – Capture all socket, protocol, authentication, and transfer information, then rapidly analyze it to pinpoint problems.
- Non-repudiation – Audit transactions throughout their lifecycle, ensuring your ability to determine if and when a particular event or transfer
occurred. Prove whether something happened, when it happened, and who was responsible for making it happen.
It's all built right in
EFT with ARM comes with everything you need to get started, including a 2GB database, 30 preconfigured reports, and a visual custom report designer.
You can use the database for production or just for testing. If you have a SQL database you'd rather use, simply point to it insteadit's your option.
Enabling and configuring EFT with ARM is as simple as switching it on and pointing it to the recording database. EFT takes care of the rest.
The visually based report designer uses familiar Microsoft's Access-style controls that you can use to build customized reports quickly and easily.
EFT with ARM captures significantly more data points than standard file logging. Data is stored in real time in a relational database, which you
can then query from the EFT Administrator, or query directly from your own reporting system.
Query live data and pull it into a report in seconds. When a report is executed, EFT with ARM connects to the database and retrieves audited data
based on the specified criteria and generates a report you can view directly in the EFT Administrative console. Use the preconfigured reports,
or create your own reports using the visually-based report designer.
Search for a particular transaction from a specified date range. You can also select a report and then perform searches on it for even more granular analysis,
filtering the results based on multiple criteria such as time, protocol, IP, file name, or bytes transferred. EFT with ARM enables you to find
out what is happening and analyze why quickly and efficiently. You can export reports in .html, .pdf, .vp, or .txt formats.
The included preconfigured reports have been carefully selected based on extensive interviews and research into the most important reporting needs, such
as troubleshooting, nonrepudiation, billing, and trending.
