Going Far Beyond Native SharePoint Reporting Tools with Netwrix Auditor

Using native tools, how much time does it take you to create a report on SharePoint changes or access? Knowing that even a small change to user content, permissions or farm configuration can result in a data breach and threaten your business continuity puts additional pressure on you. But what if reports were so detailed and easy-to-read that you could identify risky activity in minutes? With the right tools at your fingertips, you can gain pervasive visibility with actionable reports, from SharePoint lists changes to who accessed which information across your Microsoft SharePoint.

Using native SharePoint reporting tools to monitor activity is difficult

To stay on top of activity that happens across your SharePoint sites, you can leverage the capabilities offered by SharePoint Server, such as using SQL Server Reporting Services to generate reports from SharePoint list activity to content changes. However, make sure you have lots of time on your hands, because to create reports on SharePoint activity, you’ll need to first export audit data into Excel or another format, and then spend serious time digging through rows and rows of hard-to-read events in order to detect an unwarranted change to permissions or an unauthorized access to your sensitive document. Moreover, the longer it takes you to identify a potential threat, the greater the risk that it will be too late to take action. Plus, native tools lack automatic report delivery, tying your hands tight in terms of streamlining reporting processes.
