Netwrix Auditor delivers complete visibility into changes made to Group Policy objects, such as security settings and links between GPOs and domain controllers or public key policies, and enables you to compare their current states with your known good baseline, so you can facilitate Group Policy auditing, improve IT security and prove regulatory compliance more easily.
Monitors modifications to audit policy configuration and other Group Policy changes, providing the critical who, what, when and where details and before and after values.
Shows the current state of your Group Policy objects and their settings, so you can easily compare them to a known good baseline.
Notifies you about critical changes to Group Policy settings, such changes to interactive logon policy or Windows settings, so you can respond immediately.
Administrators who rely on native logs only for Group Policy auditing spend hours or even days crawling through endless cryptic logs in an attempt to investigate a single security incident or prepare compliance audit reports. Most Group Policy audit tools can’t help you address these needs. Netwrix Auditor can.
With native Microsoft Windows tools, you can’t quickly determine which policies stored in the Group Policy container fail to comply with your internal security controls. Netwrix Auditor’s comprehensive reports deliver actionable audit data so you can, for instance, assess whether your default policies should be re-enabled or linked to the appropriate DCs.
Since GPOs settings control your domains, users, computers and other AD objects, any change made through the Group Policy Management Console could lead to prolonged business service disruptions. Netwrix Auditor notifies you about each modification you deem critical, so you can remediate any improper changes and get your systems back up and running in a timely manner.
"Netwrix Auditor is a fantastic solution that has become a proxy set of eyes and ears, monitoring the network for anomalous Active Directory and Group Policy activity. The volume of information it sorts through would require someone spending 4–8 hours per week. At the rate I pay for MSP support, that equates to a savings of $1,200–$2,400 per month in additional labor cost."
Unlike standalone change and access auditing tools, Netwrix Auditor provides a clear picture of what’s going on across your on-premises and cloud IT environment. It delivers insightful reports with information about who did what, when and where it happened, and the before and after values for each change. You get comprehensive Active Directory logon auditing as well as Group Policy and Active Directory change and configuration auditing in a single solution so you can detect insider threats faster, efficiently investigate security incidents and prove to auditors that security policies are being followed.
