Any change to farm configuration on your site, modification to permissions, or unauthorized access to sensitive content on your Microsoft SharePoint Server can threaten your data security, render critical services unavailable or lead to a failure at your next compliance check. To sleep tight at night, you need to be sure that no suspicious action in your SharePoint environment goes unnoticed. You need easy-to-read SharePoint reports on all activity with all the details for each action, as well as efficient SharePoint list reporting, so nothing important can slip under your radar.
Enabling SharePoint reporting with native tools
Your SharePoint environment is critical to your organization's business collaboration strategy, productivity, information management and more. However, SharePoint's underlying infrastructure is prone to accidental and malicious changes, as well as unauthorized data access. To mitigate these risks, you need to proactively monitor and neutralize security and compliance violations, from the moment your data is created through its entire lifecycle.
Built-in reporting in SharePoint is rather limited. Be ready not only to manually create reports by exporting audit data via Excel services into a table format, but also sift through mountains of audit data in order to spot a suspicious action. Moreover, SharePoint reports generated by SQL Server Reporting Services or created with Report Builder lack easy-to-read details that could expedite getting to the root cause of a problem. To top it all off, you can’t subscribe to the reports you need to view them on a regular basis.
Safeguarding critical assets better with SharePoint reports from Netwrix
Netwrix Auditor for SharePoint exceeds native reporting by streamlining reporting processes and delivering easy-to-read, actionable reports on SharePoint activity.

As a result, they empower you with 360-degree visibility into what’s actually going on across your SharePoint environment. With this security intelligence at your fingertips, you can easily spot and choke off any emerging risk that threatens your SharePoint security.
Protect your sensitive content
Keep an eye on what changes users made to your critical content. Comprehensive reports for every change enable you to identify suspicious activity, and the Google-like interactive search empowers you to quickly investigate it before a breach occurs.
Prevent privilege escalation
Gain control over how permissions are inherited and modified across your SharePoint environment, so you can ensure no individuals get access to data they shouldn’t have. Stay tuned by subscribing to this or any other report you need and they will be delivered automatically on the schedule you choose.
Stay on top of who reads what and when
Gain visibility into who views your SharePoint documents, lists and more with efficient reporting on read events. To further strengthen data security and remediate risks faster, you can set up alerts, for instance, if you want to know immediately about an unusual spike in reads of your most sensitive information.
