Active Directory Auditing Software

Netwrix Auditor for Active Directory delivers security analytics about what’s going on in Active Directory and Group Policy. Use this data to mitigate the risk of privilege abuse, prove IT compliance and streamline troubleshooting.

Empowers you to respond in minutes to critical Active Directory changes, failed logons (which could be a sign of a brute force attack in progress) and other threats that put your environment at risk.
Enables you to quickly sort through audit data and fine-tune search criteria until you find the information you need. Save your searches as custom reports that you can run on demand or have delivered to you on schedule.
Control over effective permissions
Helps you enforce the least-privilege principle by reporting on who has access to what in your Active Directory and how those rights were granted.
Comparisons of current and past configurations
Retains snapshots of Active Directory and Group Policy configurations so you can easily compare the current configuration to any point in the past.
Logon auditing
Reports on both failed and successful logons and enables you to view the full logon history of a suspect employee.
Active Directory compliance
Provides out-of-the-box reports aligned with controls from a wide range of standards, including PCI DSS, HIPAA, SOX, GLBA, FISMA/NIST, CJIS, GDPR and more.
Password expiration alerting and inactive user tracking
Improves security by automatically deactivating inactive user accounts and reminding AD users to change their passwords before they expire.
Rollback and object restore
Helps ensure business continuity by enabling you to revert changes to a previous state without any downtime or having to restore from backup.
Non-intrusive architecture
Works without agents so it never degrades performance or causes downtime.
Active Directory change auditing is critical for maintaining network security and proving compliance. Netwrix Auditor for Active Directory automates Active Directory change tracking and reporting tasks, mitigates the risk of privilege abuse, and helps organizations comply with internal security policies and government or industry regulations.
"Netwrix Auditor helps us with Active Directory reporting on attributes that have changed and allows us to quickly respond to the events that have the potential to take us out of compliance"

And they can even roll back unwanted changes to the previous state without disrupting business operations.
