Netwrix Auditor for Network Devices
The free edition of Netwrix Auditor for Network Devices monitors network devices for configuration changes and logon attempts; catches scanning threats before attackers can take control of the network; and simplifies detection of hardware failures so you can quickly troubleshot network traffic issues. Unlike other free network audit tools, Netwrix Auditor sends daily reports detailing the critical events that happened during the last 24 hours to help you streamline network device security auditing.
Without proper network security tools, the analysis of native logs takes a great deal of time and effort to spot activity that could lead to connectivity issues or make the entire network unreachable. This edition of Netwrix Auditor, unlike other network security audit software, is free of charge and provides actionable audit data on critical events, such as firewall configuration changes, network scanning threats, and failed logon attempts by database or server administrators and other users, enabling organizations to respond to these events before they can damage network security, performance or availability.
This free network auditing tool makes it easy to establish continuous security monitoring of your network and ensure that the activity of users is in line with established processes and controls. It is essential to track user actions because any improper change, whether deliberate or accidental, can create network vulnerabilities that could lead to a wide range of security incidents, from loss of internet connectivity or application downtime to a successful cyberattack.
