The Power of SharePoint Auditing with Change Auditor for SharePoint
Change Auditor for SharePoint enables faster, easier and more secure Microsoft® Sharepoint® auditing. It tracks, audits, reports and alerts on changes to SharePoint farms, servers, sites, users, permissions and more — all in real time.
Change Auditor for SharePoint translates events into simple terms and stores data in one centralized and secure database. It also generates intelligent, in-depth reports to protect against policy violations, delivering the SharePoint reporting data you need to pass your next audit.
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.
Tracks user and administrator activity with detailed information including who, what, when, where, which workstation–and why for change events, plus original and current values for all changes.
Sends critical change and pattern alerts to email and mobile devices to prompt immediate action, enabling you to respond faster to threats even while you're not on site.
Enables the viewing, highlighting and filtering of change events and the relation of other events over the course of time in chronological order across your Windows environment for better understanding and forensic analysis of those events and trends.
Provides instant, one-click access to all information on the change you're viewing and all related events, such as what other changes came from specific users and workstations, eliminating additional guesswork and unknown security concerns.
Tracks changes to SharePoint server configurations and security changes that involve SharePoint users, permissions, farms, servers, site collections, lists and documents, which protects against system performance issues and unwanted security gaps.
Narrows searches from multiple SharePoint farms, servers and sites by event type, data range, user account and objects, enabling administrators to quickly pinpoint the source of the problem while eliminating the “noise” from safe, routine events.
Stores audit data in one centralized and secure database, providing the necessary separation of duties (SoD) between SharePoint administrators and security staff tasked with monitoring.
Provides preconfigured and customizable reports that satisfy auditor requests so that administrators can get back to their regular jobs quickly.
Configures access so auditors can run searches and reports without making any configuration changes to the application, and without requiring the assistance and time of the administrator.
Searches from anywhere using a web browser and creates targeted dashboard reports to provide upper management and auditors with access to the information they need without having to understand architecture or administration.
