Dr. Peter Stephenson, Technology Editor, SC Magazine:
"The Change Reporter Suite from Netwrix offers full change management across an entire network infrastructure. Chances are that if something has been changed, this product will know about it and be able to report the alterations to those that need to know. This software solution can monitor for changes almost anywhere on the network, including Active Directory, file servers, Microsoft Exchange, storage appliances (such as NetApp or EMC), virtual and physical infrastructure, and SQL Server databases, among many others. Using this suite, administrators can easily keep an eye on the environment and know who changed what, what the value was changed from and to, and, more importantly, when and where the change originated.

We found installation to be simple and straightforward.

One thing we really liked about this product was the large amount of directories and other places it could plug in to, as well as how easy it was to configure change management across many types of devices."

Robert Bobel, Director of Product Management, Netwrix Corporation:
"The SC Magazine results are exciting to us because they further validate our evolving strategy to delivering a simple and efficient solution based on our advanced platform. Moving forward our products will further differentiate themselves as we start to expose next generation SIEM technology on which our architecture is built."
