Inappropriate Active Directory modifications can put your sensitive resources at risk. And the longer an inappropriate change goes undetected, the more likely it may have lasting negative impact to the business. Without Active Directory change notification, it's hard to be instantly aware of critical system configuration changes. Real-time Active Directory alerts are essential to enabling IT staff to proactively detect potentially harmful activity and prevent security breaches.

Netwrix Auditor for Active Directory alerts system administrators immediately about the most critical Active Directory changes that could turn into security incidents by sending them real-time alerts about specified modifications as they happen. Administrators can either enable the predefined real-time alerts provided by Netwrix Auditor or create their own custom alerts.

Multiple recipients can be subscribed to Active Directory change notifications about specific types of modifications. For example, a system administrator, an IT manager and an information security officer can all receive a real-time alert whenever the membership of the Enterprise Admins group or the Domain Admins group is modified. The template of the email alert can also easily be customized.

Each Active Directory change notification includes detailed information about the event: who did what, when and where, as well as "before" and "after" values for each modification. These Active Directory real-time alerts enable IT staff to keep a tight grip on the most critical system configuration changes and proactively detect unauthorized or malicious modifications, thereby significantly reducing the risks of security or regulatory violations.
