Netwrix Spiceworks

VMware Auditing Software

Netwrix Auditor for VMware audits VMware vSphere, vCenter, and standalone ESXi hosts to help organizations harden security, streamline compliance and optimize operations. The application enables complete visibility into your virtual infrastructure by detecting and reporting on changes made to vCenter and its servers, folders, clusters, resource pools and hardware configurations of virtual machines.
Deep insight into every change
Details when each change was made, who made it, and what exactly was changed with the before and after values — across your entire VMware infrastructure.
Detailed reports and dashboards
Enables IT and business users alike to get the audit information they need. Predefined reports and dashboards offer filtering, sorting, exporting, drill-down, Web access and email subscriptions.
Agentless mode of operation
Offers agent-free deployment. Agentless data collection method does not introduce the risk of downtime for your production servers and does not lead to decreased system stability or reliability.
Out-of-the-box VMware compliance reports
Includes out-of-the-box reports mapped to many current regulatory compliance mandates, including PCI DSS 3.0, HIPAA, SOX, FISMA/NIST800-53 and ISO/IEC 27001.
Maintaining the performance and security of your virtual environment on a daily basis is an important — and non-trivial — task. VMware monitoring tools are a critical component of a solid security strategy because they help you quickly detect and remediate unauthorized changes and errors that could lead to downtime, data loss or compliance failures. Netwrix Auditor for VMware helps organizations maximize their investments in virtualization technologies by simplifying VMware change auditing.
"After we have implemented VMware environment, we figured out that Netwrix Auditor, besides auditing Active Directory and Group Policy just to name a few, also tracks and reports changes in VMware environment – and it was exactly what we needed."

Report on changes to your VMware installations faster and with far less effort

Overcome the limitations of native auditing tools and simplify VMware reporting. Instead of manually poring through arcane logs, monitor changes across your VMware environment using predefined audit reports and dashboards with sorting and filtering capabilities. Slash your workload even further by subscribing stakeholders to the reports they need — the reports will be delivered automatically by email on the schedule you specify, so you can focus on other priorities.

Streamline investigations to reduce risk while saving time and money

Quickly untangle a complex security incident or get to the bottom of an application downtime event so you can minimize its impact and prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future. Interactive Search speeds your investigation by making it easy to hone in on the exact audit information you need. Fine-tune your sorting and filtering criteria to get custom VMware security reports that you can export and share with others.

"Netwrix products are solid and easy to configure. Moreover, with Netwrix daily reports, I have been able to detect problems in the early stage to sustain security and avoid downtime and data breaches. I would recommend Netwrix Auditor to anyone who does not have time to sort through thousands of log entries or needs to quickly create easy-to-read PDF documents of the information
they need to pass on."
