It’s crucial to keep track of all access events and spot risky sign-ins. Netwrix Auditor enables Azure AD reporting on successful and failed logon attempts with full information, including users’ names and IP addresses. These sign-in activity reports help you detect unauthorized authentication attempts, brute-force attacks and hackers trying to break into your system.
Some threats are less obvious than, say, the massive data removal indicative of a ransomware attack, so they can easily go unnoticed. Netwrix Auditor helps you catch malicious insiders and accounts that might have been compromised by providing a unified representation of unusual user activity across all audited systems, with each user’s individual risk score. This enables you to easily spot threat actors, even if they are careful to spread their activity across different systems over time.
There are situations that require meticulous investigation, such as a directory role being changed or a user being unable to access a web application. Netwrix Auditor’s Interactive Search enables efficient investigations and troubleshooting by allowing you to specify your own search criteria, apply multiple built-in filters and quickly retrieve exactly the detailed audit records you need.
Storing your Azure AD audit trail and keeping your systems under close scrutiny will still not guarantee passing compliance audits. Netwrix Auditor enables you to prepare for compliance checks with less effort and expense by providing out-of-the-box compliance reports tailored to PCI DSS, HIPAA, GDPR, SOX, GLBA, FISMA/NIST and other common regulatory standards.
Netwrix Auditor can be easily integrated with security, compliance, IT management and other tools through our RESTful API, so you can gain a wider view of your environment while having the entire audit trail available within a single platform.
Manually handling basic management tasks, such as blocking users with multiple failed logon attempts, can be a real headache. With Netwrix Auditor, you can automate response to common Azure AD incidents by embedding scripts into alerts, ensuring consistent response to incidents while enabling you to stay focused on other important tasks.
Some regulatory compliance standards require retaining the Azure AD audit trail for long periods. Netwrix Auditor compresses and stores audit data in a two-tiered (file-based + SQL database) system, so you can retain it in a cost-effective way for more than 10 years. As a result, you can easily investigate incident that happened in the distant past and respond to requests from auditors.
Ensure the protection of your Azure AD and adhere to the least-privilege principle by assigning appropriate access rights to Netwrix Auditor. For example, ensure that only certain IT administrators can change the product’s configuration and that only appropriate business teams have access to Azure AD audit reports.
