Hi! Is there a enterprise tool available on the market to scan all the workstations on a network and find non-compliant files like MP3, Videos, etc that users may store on their machine. I would also be interested to scan 'text' based files for sensitive data like credit card numbers or social insurance numbers... Any help or suggestion would be appreciated! Thanks in advance! Richard

    Check http://www.inforapid.de/html/searchreplace.htm It is Freeware and I have found it very useful ----------- InfoRapid Search & Replace is one of the most powerful text retrieval programs currently available for Microsoft Windows. With its built-in converters, it's excellently suitable for searching and previewing HTML and RTF documents. In pure text files, the found text passages can be replaced after the search is over. The search and replace process can be automated with the help of batch files to replace several phrases in one step. The found documents can be opened in a preview window, in which the matches are highlighted. A special feature is that InfoRapid can use Microsoft Office converters to search WinWord, Excel, Lotus and other documents and preview them in their original layout.

    Kaseya is a decent tool as it is can do reports and trouble ticketing also. I would stress that you be careful scanning for "credit card numbers or social insurance numbers". First your user security policy should state that these are no-no's to be kept on an unsecure/unencrypted desktop. Then you are coverd when you are searching for this information. If you do not do this, you could be technically in breach of the laws protecting such infomation from intrussion. It's been a gray area for years so follow due diligence in this respect. Also keep you upper management (manager, CIO, CISO) in the loop when you do the scans. Get their authorization because this can and will CYA.
