Awareness versus Complete Visibility

If you feel overwhelmed trying to keep track of everything that is going on in your IT environment, Netwrix Auditor Free Community Edition is the way to go. However, it has some limitations and if you are looking for complete visibility into your environment, and want to mitigate security risks and shield sensitive data from external attacks and malicious insiders, you should consider getting back to the full version of Netwrix Auditor.

"Netwrix Auditor has been a great tool for monitoring and auditing various aspects of our network. The software was easy to install and intuitive to use. The daily and real-time automated reports we receive are beneficial and save us a great deal of time. Since installing Netwrix Auditor, we are more informed than we have ever been about key security events happening across our network. The technical support is fantastic, and the product itself is constantly evolving to increase functionality and value."
