Michael Fimin, President and CEO, Netwrix Corporation
Enterprise IT departments have to deal with a dynamic nature of the ever-growing stack of IT infrastructure components, configuring new systems and maintaining configuration of a diverse portfolio of existing systems,” said Fimin. “With the recently added layers of virtualization and cloud computing, which contribute to even greater complexity of the stack, the ability to audit who made what change, when and where in every single system and application, at each layer, is becoming a critical necessity, because otherwise an IT department risks losing control and visibility over its IT infrastructure, resulting in security and compliance issues.”

Chris Rich, Senior Director of Product Management, Netwrix Corporation
New enhancements to Change Reporter Suite, such as real-time alerting, snapshot reporting, AuditAssurance™ technology, enterprise-level scalability, integration with SIEM systems and other improvements have helped to bring Netwrix’s #1 change auditing solution to the next level,” said Rich. “Modular platform architecture and the unmatched coverage of audited systems and applications have already made Netwrix #1 for change auditing and winner of multiple awards. The long-term technology roadmap of Netwrix is to support auditing of the broadest range of systems, including cloud-based systems, while also providing better business intelligence for the audit data, all in one integrated solution.
