Clairvaux MacKillop College enhances network security with Netwrix Auditor

The Australian college has deployed IT auditing solution to enable complete visibility into Active Directory changes and minimize security risks

Sydney, Australia, January 21, 2016

Netwrix Corporation, a provider of IT auditing software that delivers complete visibility into IT infrastructure changes and data access, today announced that Clairvaux MacKillop College has deployed Netwrix Auditor to strengthen security of Active Directory by mitigating the risk of privilege misuse.

Clairvaux MacKillop College Clairvaux MacKillop College is a secondary school in Brisbane, Australia, that educates over 1200 students in the Catholic tradition. Like any other educational organization, the college is required to protect sensitive information such as student and employee records, intellectual property and financial data, against unauthorized access. To achieve that, the college IT team needed to increase visibility into all modifications to Active Directory configuration or possible malicious misuse of privileges that could jeopardize the security of sensitive data. The team decided to deploy Netwrix Auditor for Active Directory to enable visibility into changes performed by in-house IT team and contractors.

Netwrix Auditor for Active Directory helps the IT team to minimize security risks by meeting the challenge of timely detection and troubleshooting of unauthorized changes made by privileged users in Active Directory and Group Policy. The IT team benefits from using Netwrix Auditor reports, which provide full details about every change serving as a proof for the College management that there has been no activity that could compromise cyber security.

John Cantarella, Network Manager at Clairvaux MacKillop College, commented, "Netwrix Auditor is a powerful solution when you need to get a high-level overview of what’s happening across your IT systems, and it has exceeded my expectations. It gives us necessary information instantly when our Active Directory admins make an unauthorized change. That means we can take proactive steps to prevent a significant negative impact on the overall security and make sure that no sensitive data is compromised."

"Because of the nature of educational organizations, IT security challenges are defined by the need to protect students’ and employees’ Personally Identifiable Information (PII)," said Branden Boag, Director APJ at Netwrix. "With data privacy as a priority to security strategy, IT leaders in education are tasked to inform stakeholders how PII is protected against unauthorized disclosure. To be ready to respond to strict requirements, it is necessary to have a deep understanding of what exactly is happening across the IT infrastructure, ensure internal controls are running properly, so not a single activity is ignored or overlooked."
