The larger an organization is, the more changes occur daily in Active Directory — and the larger the number of stakeholders constantly requesting different reports about those changes. Relying on raw event logs to generate Active Directory audit reports requires IT staff to expend a great deal of time and effort to extract, analyze and deliver this data to the right people in time.
Netwrix Auditor for Active Directory eliminates the burden of manual collection and analysis of event log data and speeds delivery of Active Directory audit reports with report subscriptions: the Active Directory change reports each stakeholder needs are automatically delivered via email or saved in the designated file shares daily, weekly or monthly. State-in-time reports are also available for subscriptions. For instance, an auditor who performs regular attestation of network security can receive a monthly report on administrative group membership.
Each report can be delivered to multiple recipients at the same time without the need to configure each subscription separately. For example, an IT manager and an information security officer can be subscribed to receive an Active Directory change report with a weekly summary of all changes made to security groups every Monday. Similarly, multiple HR specialists can review changes made to user accounts every month.
The report subscription feature even provides filtering options to tailor the Active Directory audit reports to better meet subscribers' needs. With this automated Active Directory change reporting capability, system administrators can easily deliver reports to all stakeholders who need audit data, including IT managers, auditors and non-IT users, keeping them informed about the issues that matter to them.
