Change Auditor for Active Directory Queries
Change Auditor for Active Directory Queries provides real-time tracking, analysis and reporting on all Microsoft® Active Directory®-based and LDAP queries. By detecting queries in real time, you can eliminate the time and complexity required for auditing and determine the source of queries prior to a directory migration or consolidation. You can also measure domain controller performance and easily translate query data into the simple terms of who, what, when, where and originating machine.
Identify the who, what, where, when and originating machine for each query in simple terms, saving the administrator time normally spent digging for more details.
Identify queries against Active Directory (AD) that do not conform to your internal security policy because they are not secure or signed.
Show which workstations and servers are performing LDAP queries that can affect domain controller performance.
Learn what machines need connectivity to LDAP during and after a migration.
Easily integrate with SIEM solutions to forward Change Auditor events to Splunk, HP Arcsight or IBM QRadar. Additionally, Change Auditor integrates with Quest InTrust for long-term 20:1 compressed event storage and aggregation of native or third-party logs to reduce storage costs on SIEM forwarding and create a highly-compressed log repository.
Correlate disparate IT data from numerous systems and devices into an interactive search engine for fast security incident response and forensic analysis. Include user entitlements and activity, event trends, suspicious patterns and more with rich visualizations and event timelines.
View, highlight and filter change events and the relation of other events over the course of time in chronological order across your Microsoft® Windows® environment for better understanding and forensic analysis of those events and trends.
Instantly get all information on the change you're viewing and all related events—with a single click—such as what other changes came from specific users and workstations, eliminating additional guesswork and unknown security concerns.
Eliminate auditing limitations and capture change information without the need for native audit logs, resulting in faster results and significant savings of storage resources.
Generate comprehensive reports for best practices and regulatory compliance mandates for GDPR, SOX, PCI-DSS, HIPAA, FISMA, GLBA and more.
Receive email and mobile alerts regarding critical changes and patterns, enabling you to respond faster to threats even while you're not on site.
Search from anywhere using a web browser and create targeted dashboard reports to provide upper management and auditors with access to the information they need without having to understand architecture or administration.
