Netwrix Auditor for Office 365
The free edition of Netwrix Auditor for Office 365 delivers visibility into SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business and Exchange Online systems. Daily activity summary reports sent by this free reporting tool include critical details for each event. These automated reports on Office 365 user activity facilitate routine Office 365 admin review for improved security and compliance.
This freeware reports on configuration and file changes in SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business systems, as well as suspicious attempts to access SharePoint Online lists and documents and OneDrive for Business files. It also reports on Exchange Online configuration changes, and mailbox activities in Exchange Online accounts performed by non-owners.
On top of auditing Office 365, the Netwrix Auditor platform also delivers visibility into Azure Active Directory by tracking changes to cloud user accounts and logons to Microsoft cloud services. Plus, if you have a hybrid IT infrastructure, Netwrix Auditor will report on both your cloud-based and on-premises systems in a unified way — giving you a level of visibility and control that Office 365 Security and Compliance Center simply can’t provide.
Once you start using Netwrix Auditor for Office 365, you will get full functionality for free for 20 days.
