Ensure security and streamline compliance by gaining control over server configurations and changes

To safeguard your environment, it is critical to know every nook and cranny of your Windows servers. What DNS records were updated recently? Who changed access permissions to your files shares? Is your server configuration in line with your security policy? What software was installed while you were away? Netwrix Auditor gives you detailed answers.

Regularly review your server configuration and spot deviations from a known good baseline

Use Netwrix Auditor to perform systematic Windows Server auditing and quickly note any deviations from your known good server configuration baseline, such as outdated antivirus or harmful software. Remediate IT risks in accordance with server management best practices.

Detect critical security events with continuous Windows Server monitoring and alerting

Windows Server security audit logs are so noisy and cryptic that you are likely to miss critical events, such as registry key modifications or USB insertions. The Windows audit software from Netwrix can alert you to these events and other harmful behavior patterns, so you can respond in time to avoid security breaches.

Investigate suspicious changes made to your server objects and settings

Any changes to file share permissions or the Local Administrators group can threaten data security on a Windows server. Investigating incidents using Windows audit logs is difficult or even impossible, as you have to navigate endless pages of native audit logs and struggle to make sense of cryptic events in machine-readable format. Netwrix Auditor enables you to quickly analyze potential privilege abuse incidents and bring rogue insiders into the light.

Troubleshoot unauthorized changes with actionable Windows Server auditing

Native Windows Server audit logs generally hold only a week’s worth of audit records, and contain low-level information that makes it hard to perform proper troubleshooting. Netwrix Auditor prevents the loss of audit data and provides all the necessary details, including the before and after values for each modification, in an easy-to-read format, so you can get right to the bottom of an issue and remediate it in time.
