Verisys Console

Verisys is a commercial file integrity monitoring solution for Windows and Linux based systems, developed by the UK based company Ionx.

Components[edit]

Verisys consists of both client and server components - the Verisys Console and Verisys Agents. Agents are deployed to servers or workstations to be monitored, while the console provides a GUI to manage remote agents. Note that it is possible to deploy both the console and agent to a single machine, if desired.

TLS is used to secure communication between the console and agents.

How it Works[edit]

A baseline snapshot of the current system state is taken and according to your configuration Verisys will automatically compare the system against this baseline to detect any changes. Using the console, you can also start an integrity check manually at any time.

The Verisys agent examines a number of properties and attributes of each file to ascertain whether any changes have been made. Rather than simply check basic object properties, Verisys performs a cryptographic hashing algorithm on the actual data contained within each file.
