Netwrix Auditor for Exchange
Free Exchange reporting tool that keeps you aware of Microsoft Exchange Server changes and non-owner mailbox access events
Technical Services Manager, Eclipse Group Solutions Ltd.
The free edition of Netwrix Auditor for Exchange delivers visibility into what’s happening in your Exchange environment. This free Exchange reporting tool monitors changes to mailboxes, role groups, mailbox databases and Exchange Server configuration. It also keeps you updated on all non-owner mailbox access events. Daily email reports detail every activity within the last 24 hours, including the before and after values for each modification.
Without regular monitoring of what’s going on in your Exchange environment, you can’t be sure that user activity is in line with established processes and controls. Reviewing native logs for this information is anything but efficient — and now you have an alternative. This freeware for Exchange Server delivers accurate and meaningful data about every change and non-owner mailbox access event automatically, eliminating the major blind zones of Exchange.
Any inappropriate change on Exchange Server in system downtime could interrupt your business. And any non-owner mailbox access could lead to sensitive corporate data being stolen. Our Exchange Server reporting tool enables IT admins to review activity in the Exchange environment so they can identify and remediate inappropriate or malicious actions that put data security at risk.
