Netwrix Auditor for Azure AD
The free edition of Netwrix Auditor for Azure AD provides visibility into all changes and logons in your cloud directory. Daily activity summaries provided by this Azure security monitoring tool deliver the necessary details about every event during the last 24 hours, including the before and after values for changes, so you can detect and remediate modifications that threaten application uptime and respond to security incidents faster to ensure your cloud security.
Lack of visibility into Azure AD increases your vulnerability to multiple security threats. Netwrix Auditor’s security intelligence overcomes the drawbacks of native logs, providing clear, noise-free audit data to help you monitor your Azure environment and spot critical issues and suspicious activity, such as user account changes, repeated failed sign-ins and deletions of Azure resources, so you can improve security management of your cloud services.
Azure AD holds the keys to many of your organization’s critical assets, so you need to establish full control over it. Lack of regular monitoring can lead to system downtime that disrupts essential business processes. This free tool offers comprehensive auditing capabilities so you can discover inappropriate or malicious actions that could threaten your cloud infrastructure, giving you a level of visibility that legacy solutions simply can’t provide.
