Netwrix Auditor for SharePoint
Free SharePoint monitoring to stay aware of changes and data access events in your SharePoint Online and on-premises SharePoint environment
Denmark Technical College
The free edition of Netwrix Auditor for SharePoint enables you to harden your SharePoint data security by keeping you current on changes to key SharePoint components, including your SharePoint farm, web applications, web pages, site collections, sites and user content, as well as document reads. This SharePoint monitoring tool collects and analyzes information from the event logs produced by your SharePoint systems, and sends daily email reports with all the key details in a human-readable format, saving you time and effort while strengthening your security posture.
Slash time spent on SharePoint monitoring
Monitoring read access events and changes across your SharePoint farm by both users and administrators using native tools takes a lot of resources and time. The free edition of Netwrix Auditor for SharePoint enables efficient SharePoint monitoring and management by delivering actionable audit data in a timely and convenient manner.
Lack of visibility into activity in SharePoint increases the vulnerability of your critical collaboration services to both external and internal security threats. The free edition of Netwrix Auditor for SharePoint tracks all modifications and read events and sends you a daily summary for both on-premises SharePoint Server and SharePoint Online, so you don’t have to switch between different tools. With this continuous SharePoint monitoring, you can detect suspicious activity by users and find the root cause of an incident in time to prevent serious damage — instead of having to manually run PowerShell commands to view cryptic SharePoint reports and logs. Get deep visibility that the Office 365 Security and Compliance Center simply can’t provide, right in your inbox.
