Irvine, CA, February 24, 2016

Netwrix Corporation, a provider of IT auditing software that delivers complete visibility into IT infrastructure changes and data access, today released the key findings of its global 2016 Netwrix Customer Survey. As a customer-driven company, Netwrix aimed to find out how customers describe their experience with Netwrix Auditor in order to ensure the solution meets customers’ needs and expectations.

Netwrix Auditor is an IT auditing software that delivers complete visibility into IT infrastructure changes and data access by providing actionable audit data about who changed what, when and where each change was made, and who has access to what. Netwrix Auditor helps organizations prevent security breaches caused by insider attacks, pass compliance audits with far less effort and expense, and keep tabs on what privileged users are doing in the environment.

The 2016 Netwrix Customer Survey was carried out from December 2015 to January 2016. It involved feedback of 376 paying customers who represent companies of various industries and sizes located worldwide.

The survey found that 96% of Netwrix Auditor customers are satisfied with the solution and would recommend it to other IT pros, also they managed to achieve the following results:

  • IT auditing helped to strengthen security. According to 84% of the respondents, IT auditing helped maintain security policies. It provides visibility needed to detect malicious activities and insider misuse, investigate incidents, and promptly respond to violations. More than a third of users at least once managed to prevent a security incident with the help of Netwrix Auditor.
  • IT auditing streamlined compliance audits. Based on the customer feedbacks, 75% of organizations pass compliance audits faster thanks to Netwrix Auditor. It allows customers to validate security controls and quickly react to auditors’ requests. Two thirds of Netwrix customers save up to 24 hours per audit (9% save more than 1 week) on reporting.
  • IT auditing simplified reporting. Manual report submission for internal and external auditors, as well as upon request of senior management is a time-consuming task for most companies, which in some cases requires dedicated IT teams. By automating this task, 83% of Netwrix customers achieved a significant reduction of time saving up to 6 hours per week on tedious work.

"We use the full suite of Netwrix Auditor applications. Being compliant with a few regulatory standards we are required to prove that we are in full control of our IT environment," said David Cook, Active Directory Engineer/Architect, West Monroe Partners. "Netwrix Auditor makes audits so much easier with its predefined easy-to-read compliance reports and search that allows us to answer any questions in real time. We save weeks’ worth of time! Now when we know about every change, every user activity in our IT environment, we also know our data is more secure than before. It’s a great product. I definitely recommend it."

"According to the 2015 Global State of Information Security Survey by PwC, every industry has been affected by security incidents in the past year. While the number of data breaches grow in scope, visibility across all levels of the IT environment becomes a global trend and an essential part of organizations’ cybersecurity strategy," said Alex Vovk, CEO and co-founder of Netwrix. "We are proud to meet this market demand and provide our customers with comprehensive range of services, which help them gain better control over the IT infrastructure, strengthen overall security posture, streamline compliance and ensure smooth operation of critical systems."
