Change auditing of VMware vSphere and ESX

Automated VMware Audit Reports with Netwrix VMware Monitoring Solution

Administrators must fully understand all changes to production VMware installations to ensure resources are available, virtual machine sprawl is managed, security risks are mitigated and compliance issues are avoided. This is especially true when unwanted or unexpected changes occur. Netwrix VMware monitoring tool delivers daily email reports to administrators automatically, without the burden and costs associated with manual collection and analysis of data from multiple logs.

The product also features report export formats including Word, Excel, and PDF to further satisfy reporting needs. Netwrix Auditor works with all versions of SQL and uses SQL Advanced Reporting Services to leverage existing knowledge and familiarity which saves time and training.

VMware change reports generated by Netwrix's VMware monitoring tool include detailed information about newly created and deleted virtual machines and folders, modified resource pool settings and options, and more. For example, you can detect who turned off a virtual machine, installed new hardware or resource pools. VMware auditing, like all critical IT infrastructure, is essential to overall IT systems management and monitoring especially in environments heavily dependent upon this technology.

The ability to audit VMware setting changes serves to greatly improve overall IT operations. With these added features, organizations can enhance operational effectiveness using virtualization technology and maintain compliance through complete visibility and control over their virtualized resources.

Email reports give administrators the opportunity to readily share information with other staff including IT Managers, help desk staff and auditors right from their mailboxes.
