Netwrix Auditor is a visibility software which grants small businesses 360-degree visibility into IT infrastructure changes, data access, and system configurations. Designed to protect data regardless of location, Netwrix Auditor detects data security threats through security analytics technology. With security analytics, users can monitor their IT environment, investigate suspicious or anomalous user behavior and prevent privilege abuse and data exfiltration
Users can manage the evidence required to pass compliance audits with hard data management, compliance reports, and audit trails. By providing such evidence, Netwrix Auditor enables users to prove their business adheres to and is compliant with PCI DSS, HIPAA, SOX, and FERPA standards, amongst others. Netwrix Auditor also allows users to maintain a complete audit trail and archive it for more than 10 years.
Netwrix Auditor supports automation intended to enhance user productivity in IT security and operations teams. Users can automate change auditing and reporting tasks to save time manually searching through weeks of log data. Detailed reports, alerts and dashboards as well as activity video recording features serve to help users audit change in IT environments. Netwrix Auditor supports auditing on a broad range of IT systems including Active Directory, Office 365, SharePoint, and more.
I find visibility to be one of the greatest tools as a network manager. Netwrix gives me the ability to monitor file actions as well as account actions that may tip me off to a security breach on the network. Or, if an employee wants to know the exact reason a file went missing I am able to query Netwrix and provide an exact answer, even a screen capture of the event in progress if I wanted. With customizable notifications I am able to get on the spot information when specific events occur, like somebody attempting to log into a Domain Administrator's account without authorization. Though a little expensive, it is better to have the security Netwrix auditor provides than to allow a network breach go unnoticed until it is too late.
Easy to setup
monitor AD, Logs, Events, etc
visibility into files, Group Policy, Active Directory, Office 365, Azure, etc
advanced features that help track down file actions, like screen captures or recordings of the actual event
The interface is sluggish
can cause some network interference if not tuned properly
Know exactly what is happening in your network so you can detect problems and intrusion attempts before they get bad.
This software takes your computer and server event logs and breaks them down into reports that you can easy view and understand exactly what is going on with your environment. You can also record what anyone does on your servers as a video. All reports can have real time notifications of events you select like multiple failed logins etc. It is also an amazing price for all that you get.
The only thing i have had is that the new version doesn't support Windows Server 2003-2008 so what i did was spun up 2 VM's for this software and ran an older version on one VM and the newest version on an other so I can have the old version monitor the 2003-2008 servers and the newest version monitor 2008 R2 to 2016.
We are able to easily spend our time on innovation as opposed to "fire-fighting."
Netwrix makes the process of auditing changes within our Active Directory environment very simple. We no longer have to spend additional time chasing down problems and what caused them. We can quickly evaluate what has recently changed, who changed it and then evaluate the best resolution without wasting time. This allows us to focus on the most important aspects of our jobs!
Netwrix does not have a lot of features that I do not find amazing. The only item that I can find that comes close to being a "con" involves the way that data is processed. I would love to find a method of auditing active directory and servers that do not involve granting Domain Admin rights to an account used for the product. It is understandable, though.
The visibility on changes in Active Directory is incredibly valuable.
When the software works as advertised the information collection and reporting is far easier than attempting to extract the date from convoluted Microsoft logs using problematic scripts. The advertised data collection is extensive, and covers the most critical areas needed by a small business IT department with a limited staff. The active directory reporting is incredibly valuable and should be a mandatory for any business with or without a dedicated IT department.
Getting the data collection to work, and then keeping the data collection working is almost nothing short of an exercise in futility. The purpose of the software is to collect and report data, and yet Netwrix does not seem to hold back on making the process seem like a customer problem by providing numerous dead end resolutions. The lack of data collection troubleshooting tools does not go unnoticed.
It has been used to show my company does take securing sensitive information seriously.
Netwrix Auditor audits a lot of different products such as SQL Server, Windows Servers, Active Directory and NetApp file servers. It is very consistent in its runs and produces reports and alerts that our US government clients fully accept. It has helped my company receive numerous accreditation for performing auditing properly.
It can be difficult to configure and sometimes fails during a heavy load. Although it may fail every now and then, it will go back and gather the information it missed in the last run and get backup to date on the audits.
