Netwrix Releases Free Add-ons for Privileged User Monitoring on Linux and Unix Systems and for Generic Linux Syslog

The new free add-ons extend the visibility provided by Netwrix Auditor to Linux and Unix systems for better security of heterogeneous environments.

Irvine, CA, September 12, 2017

Netwrix Corporation, provider of a visibility platform for user behavior analysis and risk mitigation in hybrid environments, today announced that new add-ons for Linux and Unix are now available in the Netwrix Auditor Add-on Store for all customers for free. The add-ons are designed to help customers strengthen their security posture through better control over their entire IT infrastructures.

The Add-on for Privileged User Monitoring on Linux and Unix Systems enables customers to:

  • Stay in control of privileged actions across their *nix infrastructures, including temporary privilege elevations and remote privileged sessions.
  • Improve user accountability, data security and operational stability by detecting improper access to critical server infrastructure.
  • Facilitate security and compliance investigations by preserving consolidated audit trails.

The Add-on for Generic Linux Syslog enables customers to:

  • Enhance control over activity across the entire Linux-based environment by providing a single-pane view of Linux system logs.
  • Stay alert to risky behavior patterns and investigate suspicious activity with the Google-like Interactive Search.
  • Streamline reviews, incident investigations and compliance checks by keeping the trail of syslog records.

"We are committed to providing our customers with visibility into their entire IT environments, no matter how complex or heterogeneous. We are happy to offer our customers even greater visibility by bringing Linux and Unix — globally widely used operating systems — under our umbrella of protection. It is absolutely vital for organizations to have a single-pane view of user activity across the environment when dealing with modern cyber risks and compliance inquiries. Having such a source empowers IT pros with the knowledge they need to address IT incidents before they escalate," said Michael Fimin, CEO and co-founder of Netwrix.
