VMware Auditing with Netwrix Auditor

Change auditing of VMware vSphere and ESX

Netwrix VMware Reporting Tool Provides Long-Term Historical Reporting

Long-term archiving of audit data is a requirement for compliance with regulations including:

  • Sarbox regulations require keeping of audit reports for a period not less than 7 years.
  • HIPAA regulations require holding records of all activities for a minimum of 6 years.
  • PCI standards require retaining of the audit trail history for at least one year.

Netwrix VMware reporting tool uses a two-tier method of storing data to facilitate long-term historical reporting: The first tier stores collected audit data in SQL for fast reporting. The second tier provides a file-based compressed storage to facilitate long-term historical reporting for any period of time, as required by compliance auditors or internal policies.

Microsoft MVP, Don Jones says, "Netwrix offers one of the most well thought-out long-term data archival strategies, using a two-tiered system that utilizes SQL Server for online reporting, and file-based compressed storage for long-term storage." Our storage approach provides both high-performance and long-term retention.

Collected VMware change information is automatically archived and can be stored for 7 years or more to produce a complete audit trail of changes made to VMware platforms such as ESX, ESXi, vSphere, and VI3. This gives administrators, managers and auditors the ability to drill-down into detailed information when necessary. VMware reporting tool by Netwrix archives the complete audit trail allowing organizations to analyze past policies and maintain ongoing compliance with internal and external regulations.
