SQL Server Auditing Software

Netwrix Auditor for SQL Server delivers complete visibility into your Microsoft SQL Server environment by tracking and reporting on changes made to SQL Server objects and permissions, including server instances, roles, databases, tables, stored procedures and more. Plus, the application provides all details about access events to your SQL Server, both successful and failed. This helps you harden the security of SQL Server and ensure its uninterrupted availability.

Empowers you with custom alerts on insider threats such as changes to server configuration or a spike in the number of failed logons, so you can respond quickly.
Full details about every change
Delivers actionable audit data with key details about all changes to your SQL Server environment. Easily determine when any given change was made, who made it, and what exactly was changed, including the current and past values.
Visibility into logon activity
Provides actionable intelligence on both successful and failed attempts to log onto your SQL Server with either Windows or SQL authentication, thereby facilitating prompt detection of unauthorized access and possible attacks.
Detailed audit reports and dashboards
Provides IT and business users with the SQL Server audit data they need in a comprehensible format. Predefined audit reports and dashboards can be easily customized using built-in filtering, sorting, exporting and subscription options.
Streamlined compliance reporting
Simplifies SQL Server compliance reporting with a set of predefined reports mapped to common regulatory compliance mandates, such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, SOX, GLBA, FISMA/NIST, CJIS, GDPR and more.
Non-intrusive architecture
Operates without installing agents. This method of data collection does not interfere with system processes and therefore mitigates the risk of database outages.
Database auditing is a critical component of any data security strategy. Organizations have to audit their databases in order to protect the most valuable data from leaks, comply with regulatory standards, and ensure 24/7 availability of data for applications and users. Netwrix Auditor for SQL Server simplifies SQL Server auditing and reporting and thereby helps organizations keep their critical data
safe from unauthorized access.
"Netwrix Auditor does a commendable job in tracking, storing, and reporting detailed information about changes made in a SQL Server environment."

Solidify SQL Server security by detecting and investigating suspicious modifications

Keep a tight grip on all changes on your SQL Server, such as newly created or deleted database user accounts and permissions granted on specific databases, tables or stored procedures. Quickly detect any inappropriate activity that puts your data at risk. Use the Interactive Search feature to investigate the incident and determine how to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.

Gain control over activity inside your SQL Server and prove compliance

Prove to internal and external auditors that all changes to your SQL Server environment are traceable and quickly answer questions such as who deleted a production SQL database or how the table structure of a production SQL database was modified. Retain the SQL Server security audit data for more than 10 years in a consolidated, two-tiered storage (file-based + SQL database) for historic e-discovery and compliance purposes.

Prepare reports on SQL Server changes faster and with far less effort

Overcome the limited auditing and reporting capabilities of SQL Server Trace. Instead of manually processing mountains of raw data, simply access predefined audit reports and dashboards that provide complete details about every change in an easy-to-read format that you can quickly filter and sort. An Interactive Search engine makes it easy to hone in on the audit data you need.

"We have a lot of people who touch SQL. Before Netwrix Auditor, we were not aware of all permissions that were out there, which permissions were changed, who changed configuration files and things like that. Netwrix Auditor removes lots of gaps."
