Hello Jay!

No, you can’t get the FIM agent to “reach inside” the encrypted -xls.axx, since that would require it to have the password for the file, not to mention the code required to interpret the file contents – i.e. support AxCrypt specifically.

I think you’re viewing this from the wrong angle. Let the FIM agent monitor .axx files (in addition to .xls etc etc). From your and the FIM agents perspective, the .axx file is the file that should be monitored. That ‘is’ the file to all intents and purposes.

Also, I have really no idea what your FIM agent really does, but as far as file integrity is concerned, please know that AxCrypt using a cryptographically strong keyed checksum (HMAC-SHA-512) to ensure the integrity of the encrypted file. If it is modified in any way after encryption, AxCrypt will detect this.
