Stop spending your precious time on Dell data storage monitoring

Proper Dell data storage monitoring and reporting does not have to mean spending hours each day crawling through native logs. This free Dell data storage monitoring software solution from Netwrix will help you improve data protection, while saving your company time and money on security monitoring for your Dell data storage devices. Plus, this free tool supports a broad variety of Dell products, from Dell VNX to Dell Isilon.

Lack of visibility into your Dell data storage environment increases your vulnerability to both external and internal security threats. The free edition of Netwrix Auditor for Dell Data Storage enables continuous monitoring and reporting by tracking all modifications and data access attempts on Dell data storages and sending you daily reports so you can detect any suspicious activity in a timely manner. In conjunction with other Dell data storage monitoring tools, this free application will significantly simplify Dell data storage monitoring and management tasks and save you time that you would otherwise have to spend piecing together the information collected from the logs produced by audited systems.
