Streamline SharePoint security audits and prove regulatory compliance
SharePoint admins often have to spend numerous hours crawling through the audit logs in an attempt to dig out the root cause of a security incident, investigate what change caused downtime or get the evidence of their company’s compliance with security best practices. Oftentimes, they are also asked to prepare audit log reports for management. Most SharePoint auditing tools can’t address all these needs. Netwrix Auditor can.
change auditing and alerting
Changes to Farm Administrators group settings, site collections, lists, permissions and content often go unnoticed until the organization discovers a breach, fails a compliance audit or experiences downtime. Netwrix Auditor provides comprehensive SharePoint change auditing and reporting along with customizable alerts, so you can detect critical changes and respond in a timely manner.
Instead of sifting through cryptic audit log data, use Netwrix Auditor's Interactive Search any time you need to quickly determine who has done what with your sites, lists, libraries, content types, list items, library items or SharePoint permissions. Configure custom reports based on your findings to stay aware of similar incidents in the future.

Visibility into changes and access events on SharePoint can help you detect unauthorized or suspicious actions that could lead to a data leak. Analyze which users view files that they shouldn’t have access to and track changes to permissions over your SharePoint environment, so you can ensure that corporate data is not touched by unauthorized personnel.

It provides extensive details, so you can easily determine who viewed which data, who changed what, when and where each event happened, and the before and after values for each change.

Reporting Changes to SharePoint Infrastructure and SharePoint Management with Netwrix
Continuous auditing and reporting of SharePoint changes is essential for maintaining the proper levels of security and availability. Netwrix Auditor for SharePoint offers extensive reporting capabilities for continuous SharePoint change management: predefined reports and dashboards with filtering, grouping, sorting, exporting, email subscriptions, drill-down, Web access, granular permissions and the ability to search through audit data and create custom reports on any SharePoint changes. These features help organizations detect issues that negatively impact security and business continuity and quickly remediate those problems.
Monitoring Changes to SharePoint Permissions to Minimize the Risk of a Breach
Proper SharePoint governance requires controlling user access to each site and its contents. Whenever any change is made to permissions — whether permissions to sites, lists or data were modified, or a new member was added to a SharePoint group — you need to be alerted, because improper changes can threaten your data security. For efficient permissions management, you need visibility into permissions and how they change. Netwrix Auditor for SharePoint delivers actionable intelligence, including SharePoint permissions reports that you can view at any time to determine which users gained access to your sites and whether their permissions are appropriate.
Exceeding the Native SharePoint Audit Log with Netwrix Auditor
Does your organization rely on SharePoint to store and manage critical information? If so, to ensure data security and system availability, you need to keep a close eye on all access events as well as all changes to configuration, list items, library documents, permissions and more. To view audit log data, you can configure the native SharePoint audit log in Site Collection Administration. However, SharePoint audit log reports come in a hard-to-read Excel format and don’t enable you easily identify and scrutinize suspicious activity. Netwrix Auditor for SharePoint, on the other hand, delivers actionable intelligence enriched with valuable insights, so you can quickly spot abnormal actions and drill down to investigate them, thereby minimizing the risk of attacks or insider misuse going undetected.
Passing HIPAA Audits with Less Effort and Expense with Netwrix Auditor

The solution addresses HITECH and HIPAA security requirements by helping you validate that your critical assets are secure and mitigating the risk of a breach with notifications on insider and outside threats — while also slashing audit preparation time and costs.

Therefore, ensuring SharePoint data security and compliance is essential. Netwrix Auditor for SharePoint delivers easy-to-read, detailed SharePoint reports so you can stay on top of what’s going on across your SharePoint sites and spot unauthorized attempts to access your sensitive assets before it’s too late.
Maintaining SharePoint Compliance with Netwrix Auditor

To minimize the risk of a breach and prove your compliance with regulations such as PCI DSS, HIPAA and GLBA, you need to have efficient records management, data loss prevention (DLP) and data access governance strategies in place. Netwrix Auditor for SharePoint helps you streamline SharePoint compliance by delivering reliable compliance features, such as predefined compliance reports, report subscriptions and full-featured interactive search. Now you can slash audit preparation time by 50% and address any auditor’s question within minutes while shielding your critical information from outsider and insider threats.
Ensure the Security of Your SharePoint Environment by Staying on Top of Suspicious Activity
Securing the sensitive data stored in Microsoft SharePoint Server is an important task for IT teams. To strengthen the security of your SharePoint site collections, you need to be able to quickly spot, investigate and remediate any suspicious change to your farms, web applications, sites, lists, list items and documents — especially SharePoint permissions changes. While native audit log reports can provide you with some information about changes to your site collections, they do not deliver any capabilities to help you spot malicious activity in its early stages or get to the root cause of an incident. Netwrix Auditor, on the other hand, enables you to stay on top of suspicious activity easily. Prebuilt and custom SharePoint security reports and other features enable you to quickly spot problems and determine the root cause, so you can respond promptly and prevent similar incidents from happening in the future.
