Established over 13 years ago, with more than 5,000 customers and 149 million users audited.
So it comes as no surprise that Quest® Change Auditor is a People’s Choice Stevie® Award winner.
The People’s Choice Stevie® Awards for Favorite New Products are a feature of The American Business Awards®, in which the general public can vote for their favorite new products and services of the year. The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. More than 58,000 votes were cast in 48 people’s choice categories this year. All new products and services submitted to the ABAs’ new product categories were included in people’s choice voting.
So why do customers love Change Auditor?
Well, I interviewed a few of our Quest experts who not only talk to our customers daily but have lived a day in the life of a system admin. They’ve been where you are. Read what they have to say.
Gwen Allen, Sr. Systems Consultant:
Prior to Quest, Gwen was not only a systems administrator but was an IT manager at one point. Her team of four engineers, with quite a bit of responsibility, managed Active Directory, Exchange and SharePoint. She was brought in at the beginning of a migration from Novell to Windows and a hardware refresh — at the same time! “We were constantly busy and life was stressful. I used to get phone calls in the middle of the night!
For customers, Change Auditor:
*Did you know? Nearly a third (31 percent) of organizations ignore at least half of their security alerts, according to an Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) report, and the Cisco 2017 Annual Cybersecurity Report found that 44 percent of all alerts go unexplored.
Peter Vigliano, Solutions Consultant:
Prior to Quest, Peter worked for a managed service provider that supported mostly medical and manufacturing clients that had a lot of issues with data access and data mismanagement. “We were always chasing something down,” Peter says. “Manufacturers generate oceans of data with R&D, data assurance, and really just tons of data. All the time, we were having to figure out what happened when something went wrong, and understanding access was critical.”

Brian Hymer, Sr. Solutions Architect:
Brian has worked for Quest for over 18 years and has talked to a large number of customers. “Back when I started with Quest, we didn’t have Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA and PCI regulations baring down on an IT department. These regulations have evolved, are elaborate, and the consequences for not adhering are very serious, so it’s critical to have processes and solutions in place that help you meet those regulations,” Brian says.
For customers, Change Auditor:
*Did you know? Change Auditor comes with our Google-like looking glass application called IT Security Search at no additional cost. It’s a powerful tool that doesn’t just show the event data; you can grab static data as well from other Quest solutions, like Enterprise Reporter and Active Roles, so you’re able to search a mass of information from one place.
Change Auditor continues to innovate
As I mentioned previously, Change Auditor has been around for some time and has quite a customer fan base. And the Quest R&D and Product Management teams continue to innovate and invest in Change Auditor each year. Check out what product innovations occurred in 2017 that also earned Change Auditor a Silver Stevie® Award in the New Product of the Year category. More than 3,700 nominations were submitted to this year’s American Business Awards for consideration in a wide range of categories, including New Product or Service of the Year, Most Innovative Company of the Year, Management Team of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year and Startup of the Year, among others.
Thank you again
We thank all of our customers, partners and fans who voted for Change Auditor to win this year’s People’s Choice Stevie® Award, and we also are thankful to our Change Auditor customer base who continue to support and partner with Quest over the years.
Oh! And before I forget, Change Auditor was one of three Quest solutions to be named Stevie® Award Winners; the others were Quest On Demand and Enterprise Reporter Suite. Enterprise Reporter is a very complementary solution to Change Auditor. If you have to audit changes your users are making, don’t you want to report on what they have access to? Who can do what? That’s what Enterprise Reporter helps customers do. Read this blog to find out why customers love Enterprise Reporter Suite.
