Netwrix Auditor uses a two-tier method of storing data. The first tier is stored in SQL for fast reporting. The second tier is a file-based compressed storage of audit data to facilitate longer-term, historical reporting.
Audit data can be stored for up to 7 years in accordance with many regulatory compliance guidelines. This volume of storage detail means you can recall information about your environment from an extended period of time. Having this amount of history on hand will ensure that auditors can be supplied with any detail from any time. Having access to this level of detailed historical audit data serves as an optimal resource for performing detailed forensic analysis of security incidents and other activity in the network that requires such investigations.
Microsoft MVP, Don Jones states, “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.” Our storage approach was designed to provide both high-performance and long-term retention.
