    File integrity monitoring is a part of endpoint security. It works in two modes, 1. Agent based and 2. Agent Less

    In agent based FIM, an agent sits on a host and provides real time monitoring of files. On the other hand, agent less FIM scanners will be effective only on their scheduled time i.e., there is no real time detection or reporting capability. Also, agent less scanners need to re-baseline and hash every single file on the system each time it scans.

    File integrity monitoring (FIM) refers to an IT security process and technology that tests and checks operating system (OS), database, and application software files to determine whether or not they have been tampered with or corrupted. FIM, which is a type of change auditing, verifies and validates these files by comparing the latest versions of them to a known, trusted “baseline.” If FIM detects that files have been altered, updated, or compromised, FIM can generate alerts to ensure further investigation, and if necessary, remediation, takes place. File integrity monitoring encompasses both reactive (forensic) auditing as well as proactive, rules-based active monitoring.
