How much time do you spend trying to determine what changed in your Exchange Server?
Netwrix Change Notifier for Exchange is a free Exchange Server reporting tool that monitors changes to mailboxes, Exchange role groups, mailbox databases and Exchange configuration. Daily email reports detail every change made during the last 24 hours, keeping you on top of what’s happening inside your Exchange environment.
See what changed
Indicates which Exchange Server objects and settings were added, modified or removed, with the current and past values for all modifications.
Automate auditing
Collects and consolidates data about changes from multiple sources and automatically reports on them by email on a daily basis.
Increase efficiency
Eliminates the need to analyze tons of native logs by providing information about every change in a human-readable format.
Save your IT budget
This 100% freeware for Exchange Server relieves you from extra expenses or painful budget approvals. And it will never expire or stop working when you need it.
Unify auditing of critical IT systems
Can be configured to also report on changes to Active Directory and Group Policy Objects (GPOs) without the need to install additional tools.
Monitor changes using Spiceworks
With Netwrix Change Notifier widget, you can track Exchange Server changes right from your Spiceworks dashboard and filter them by date, object or action type.
Without regular monitoring of what’s going on in your Exchange environment, you can’t be sure that changes are 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 automatically, eliminating the major blind zones of Exchange.
Any inappropriate change on Exchange Server can result in costly outcomes, such as sensitive corporate data being stolen or lost, or server downtime that interrupts the business. Our Exchange Server reporting tool enables IT admins to review all changes in the Exchange environment so they can identify and remediate inappropriate or malicious changes that put the organization at risk.
