Click to Tweet: Netwrix releases Change Reporter 4.0 loaded with new security features

Irvine, CA, April 2, 2013

Netwrix Corporation, the award-winning unified auditing software company, announces the new release of Netwrix Change Reporter 4.0, IT system auditing solution which is available for immediate purchase as of April 2, 2013. Netwrix Change Reporter 4.0 is an efficient and affordable solution for monitoring, tracking and notification every time a change is made to IT infrastructure or critical pieces of data are accessed, including powerful reports, analysis, and the secure storage of audit data for seven (7) years or longer.

According to Forrester, change reporting is the most important new technology for IT security due to security breaches and the regulatory environment for today’s enterprise. Netwrix Change Reporter 4.0 provides IT management with immediate visibility that changes were made, facilitating security over the critical IT systems and control over who is making the changes and who is accessing the sensitive data.

“IT admins have privileges that give them complete control over IT infrastructure on the network such as Windows Servers, file servers, DNS, active directory and group policy. The problem is that often no one has the visibility to understand what they are doing.” says Robert Bobel, Director of Product Management, at Netwrix. “When an admin leaves an organization, how do you watch for them to maliciously exercise some backdoor privileged access they may have? Similarly, how do you make sure changes made by an inexperienced administrator can be quickly identified and remediated?” Bobel said. “Malicious or not, change takes place continually throughout a critical IT infrastructure and unified auditing is a must-have solution for maintaining an available, stable and secure environment.”

From a single console, Netwrix Change Reporter 4.0 will monitor and capture before and after details of changes to critical IT systems across an entire organization. Netwrix Change Reporter 4.0 is a simple to set up application that supports a wide variety of compliance and auditing requirements including SOX, HIPAA, FISMA and PCI.

New Features in Netwrix Change Reporter Version 4.0

Netwrix solution for IT system auditing includes new features for significantly enhanced security and control over Windows Servers:

  • DNS servers are now supported.

  • Advanced reporting is available for stats, drill-down capabilities, “standard” reports, and enhanced subscription features to receive automated email notifications.

  • Automatic configuration tools make setting up Windows Server auditing even easier and enable improvements in selecting groups of servers to be monitored.

  • Configurable audit database retention policy.

  • Windows Server support is now a part of the Netwrix Management Console, which allows the monitoring of a wide-variety of systems and platforms from a single UI.

Netwrix Change Reporter 4.0 also includes the ability to capture dynamic screen activity, providing essential auditing visibility to critical applications that are not accessible through traditional event-log-based auditing solutions and enable auditing of applications that generate no logs at all.

  • Acts like a surveillance camera for your servers, recording all user activity for later review.

  • Audit remote access of privileged users: record and monitor Citrix and RDP sessions.

  • Jump to a specific activity and watch the actual actions performed as if you were there directly viewing the user's screen at the time the action took place.

  • Includes start and stop points of critical activities (such as app window open or closed), organizes the videos in a way that is easy to use, locate and review.

  • Application and user-specific monitoring.

The expanded offering of Netwrix Change Reporter 4.0 continues to establish Netwrix as the leader in Unified Auditing.

Netwrix Change Reporter 4.0 is available as of April 2, 2013. The product can be evaluated for free and without any limitations for 20 days at
