About File Integrity Monitoring

When installed with the CWPP Agent, the File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) plugin validates containers and virtual machines to assure compliance for files against a known good baseline. If the agent is installed and the plugin is running on the managed resource, the validation is automatic. No scan is required. MVISION Cloud supports FIM for files managed by cloud workloads.

FIM is supported for AWS, Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), Microsoft Azure, Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE).
