Simplify Azure Active Directory auditing with Netwrix Auditor to strengthen cloud security and prove IT compliance
Azure AD holds the keys to many of your organization’s critical assets, so you need to monitor it closely. Do you know who added illicit applications to the cloud? Can you determine when users’ passwords were changed? How long would it take you to trace admin activity across your Azure AD and other systems? Netwrix Auditor delivers this information in a few clicks.
Be the first to be notified about risky events that could endanger your cloud security. Enable alerts on any audit events that you consider dangerous, such as multiple failed sign-ins to the Azure AD portal and deletions of users and devices, to quickly catch threats and mitigate the impact of security incidents.
Get the broader context of an issue with traces from multiple systems, both on-premises and in the cloud. For example, you might quickly find out that sensitive data was deleted from your site because an unauthorized SharePoint administrator was added in Azure AD. Use your findings to respond quickly and avoid similar issues in the future.
Native Azure AD logs can hold data for only 90 days, and the noise that Azure AD logging contains makes it likely that you’ll miss critical events. But Netwrix Auditor cuts through the noise and provides the actionable audit data you need to get to the root cause of an issue, even if the incident happened far in the past.
Compliance auditors often ask for specific information that is not easy to extract from the native Azure AD reports. Slash the time you spend crawling through audit data and compiling compliance reports. Quickly respond to auditors’ questions and provide clear evidence of your IT compliance with reports mapped to specific controls of PCI DSS, HIPAA, GDPR and other regulations.

Unauthorized, accidental or malicious changes to Group Policy settings can jeopardize the security of sensitive resources, interrupt critical processes and services, and lead to failed compliance audits.

Netwrix Auditor for Active Directory enables organizations to audit all Group Policy changes. It provides detailed reports about who changed what, when and where each change was made, and the before and after values for each modified setting. Moreover, administrators can get alerts about changes to critical settings so they can respond immediately.
