Best Auditing and Compliance Product 4 years in a row!
Change auditing is critical to maintaining an efficient and secure IT infrastructure and for maintaining compliance and audit requirements. Without effective and convenient tracking and ongoing review of changes in systems and applications organizations risk losing control of security. Unauthorized, unwanted, and malicious changes in IT infrastructure can have tremendous impact on business continuity and predictability.
The Change Reporter feature of Netwrix Auditor automates and simplifies change auditing and reporting for critical IT systems across the entire IT infrastructure. No matter who changed what and where - be it Active Directory, file servers, Microsoft Exchange, filer appliances such as NetApp or EMC, virtual infrastructure, SQL Server databases, Windows Servers - everything is centrally audited, consolidated, and presented in easy to understand reports, scheduled for ongoing review and forensic auditing of day-to-day administrative activities by your security team and periodic inspections by compliance auditors.
The Netwrix change auditing solution also provides oversight for applications that may not produce logs or do not provide enough insight into user activity so that you have a complete audit trail of 'Who, What, When and Where' and changes that may risk security and compliance do not go undetected compromising auditing requirements and troubleshooting.
The Change Reporter streamlines compliance to HIPAA, SOX, PCI, GLBA, FISMA and many other regulations, provides an easy-to-use solution that drastically improves IT infrastructure visibility and internal security.
What's new in Netwrix Change Reporter 4.0:
Powered by AuditAssurance™ technology, the Change Reporter produces reports that include complete information on every single change that has occurred in an organization and can be used for detailed forensic analysis. Another unique Netwrix technology, AuditIntelligence™, transforms raw audit data into meaningful and actionable intelligence to drive security and compliance efforts. Data can be filtered by different criteria, such as name of person who made changes or accessed data, time period, and other parameters.
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 also recommends that you evaluate SCOM Management Pack for Netwrix Auditor, a solution that audits who changed what, when, and where in Active Directory, Group Policy and Microsoft Exchange, and feeds the audit data to Microsoft System Center Operations Manager, which generates appropriate reports and alerts.
"Netwrix offers one of the most well thought-out long-term data archival strategies, using a two-tiered system that utilizes SQL Server for online reporting, and file-based compressed storage for long-term storage."
