Netwrix Auditor upgraded to support security investigations

Netwrix leading IT auditing platform helps to identify root cause of security threats

Irvine, CA, November 5, 2015

Netwrix Corporation, a provider of IT auditing software that delivers complete visibility into IT infrastructure changes and data access, today announced the release of Netwrix Auditor 7.1. The new version simplifies investigation of past incidents and provides a complete audit trail for compliance audits. It also supports NetApp Clustered Data ONTAP to ensure monitoring of malicious activity into all storage appliances and NetApp clusters.

Netwrix Auditor is an IT auditing software that delivers complete visibility into IT infrastructure changes and data access. Netwrix Auditor provides actionable audit data about who has access to what, any changes made, and when and where each change was made. This helps organizations prevent security breaches caused by insider attacks, pass compliance audits with far less effort and expense and keep tabs on what privileged users are doing in the environment. Netwrix Auditor supports monitoring of the broadest variety of IT systems, including the entire Microsoft environment, VMware, EMC storages and NetApp filer appliances.

The key features of Netwrix Auditor 7.1 include:

  • Simplified access to historical audit trails allows users to investigate security incidents and identify their root cause, even if it lies in the distant past. The extracted audit data is available for all stakeholders and external auditors throughout the whole investigation period for analysis.
  • Support of NetApp Clustered Data ONTAP gives customers complete visibility into data access and changes made to files while they leverage all the benefits of the new NetApp version, including its cluster mode.
  • New predefined reports:
    • The Account Permissions report shows who has access to what, across all file shares and storages, to prove that employees’ privileges correspond to their business roles.
    • The Netwrix Auditor System Health report informs about Netwrix Auditor performance to ensure continuous monitoring of critical systems.

"Having been a practitioner who used Netwrix in production payment environments I can say that Netwrix was an invaluable auditing toolset that saved me and my organization many hours of time in our PCI audits," said David Monahan, Research Director, Security and Risk Management, Enterprise Management Associates. "The new auditing and support features released in 7.1 provide even greater visibility and speed to get the job done and create an even greater value proposition, especially for budget conscious organizations."

"The recent update to Netwrix Auditor solves two problems at once—it increases awareness of insider threats and helps extract evidence for compliance audits and security investigations more easily," said Michael Fimin, CEO and co-founder of Netwrix. "Netwrix Auditor 7.1 enables users to adopt a more holistic approach to information governance, improves companies’ security posture and allows them to manage large amounts of sensitive data more efficiently, thus reducing risk of data leaks, non-compliance and availability problems."
