Unauthorized and accidental changes to Active Directory objects, Group Policy settings, file servers, configuration settings in an Exchange environment, SQL server databases, virtual environment and other IT infrastructure changes that go undetected can have tremendous impact on business continuity and predictability. If users suddenly can’t access the needed resources and get needed information, then your business can’t perform.
Your ability to minimize the risk of security breaches and to ensure business continuity depends entirely on your ability to rapidly detect unauthorized or unmanaged change. Change auditing has become an essential activity in organization networks that use Microsoft Active Directory. Trying to accomplish this task manually can take enormous resources and still never paint the whole picture: Active Directory native auditing features are insufficient to adequately support business needs. A better more recommended solution is to use auditing software that will automate and streamline these time consuming tasks.
Unlike traditional log management solutions (SIEM), Netwrix makes it very easy to find relevant answers to key questions: who changed what, when, where, including previous and new values for modified settings. Netwrix Change Reporter Suite can give you answers to all those critical questions in regards to all changes, for example:
“Imagine that you accidentally deleted the wrong user container. You only wanted to delete your test accounts, but now all the users in your Active Directory are gone. You can either look for a new job, or just restore them with the Netwrix AD Object Restore Wizard. ”/Michael Pietroforte, 4sysops.com/
