Monitoring Active Directory for Security and Compliance: How Far Does the Native Audit Log Take You?

Active Directory (AD) is the cornerstone of security and control in today’s corporate network but is the Windows Security Log up to the task of fulfilling today’s security and compliance requirements?

Join Randy Franklin Smith as he demonstrates the native audit features of Active Directory provided through the Windows security log and identifies the limitations inherent in this native functionality, which can compromise an organization’s ability to fulfill security and regulatory requirements for monitoring and auditing Active Directory. In this webinar he discusses:

  • Audit Events Scattered Across Domain Controllers
  • No Reporting or Analysis
  • Volume of Audit Data
  • Performance Risks
  • Missing or Limited Information
  • Lack of Real-time Monitoring and Alerting
  • No Protection from Privileged Administrators

The ISV market has responded to this need with solutions that rely on agents installed on domain controllers to monitor AD changes in real time.  Randy discusses how these solutions work and compare to the native audit log and then Quest demonstrates how ChangeAuditor for Active Directory does a great job of bridging these gaps.
