Storing volumes of audited change events for short and long-term reporting purposes is a challenge. Native SharePoint storage for audit data is solely the SharePoint content database. This implementation can run into problems especially for very active SharePoint servers and lacks good default security. Without fast access to the audit data, precious time could be lost and the organization could be put at risk. Also, SharePoint stores its audit data on the server itself which puts it at a greater risk of being cleared or lost. Netwrix Auditor collects audit data quickly and offloads it securely to both an SQL database and a compressed storage format using a two-tier system.
The first tier stores audit data in a local SQL database. This not only allows you to secure the data but also to generate reports fast. The second tier stores audit data for up to 7 years in a file-based compressed storage with indexing (“NoSQL” approach) if management or an auditor needs to confirm records over the required amount of time. This one-of-a-kind storage approach means all audit data is both secure and accessible.
Microsoft MVP, Don Jones states, “Netwrix offers one of the most well thought-out long-term data archival strategies, using a two-tiered system that utilizes SQL Server for online reporting, and file-based compressed storage for long-term storage.” No other solution available today can offer a more robust method of data archiving and reporting. SharePoint auditing software from Netwrix provides the most comprehensive long-term archiving architecture available.
