Bring complete visibility into permissions, groups and assets
Enterprise Reporter for Active Directory provides deep visibility into Active Directory (AD) users, groups, roles, organizational units and permissions — as well as Azure AD users, groups, roles and application service principals. Armed with this information, organizations can perform security assessments, configuration change history reviews, pre- and post-migration analyses, and more, for more informed strategic planning and proactive management of the entire IT infrastructure.
Extend your visibility beyond AD and Azure AD to other on-premises environments and Office 365 workloads with Enterprise Reporter Suite.
Gain visibility into the configuration of critical IT assets in both Active Directory domains and Azure AD tenants. Comprehensive reports provide the insight necessary to ensure security and compliance with internal policies and external regulations.
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.
Plan for a smooth domain migration or consolidation project by pinpointing user and group dependencies, matching conflicts, and unused accounts before the migration starts.
Ensure appropriate Active Directory and Azure AD delegation by reporting on who has access to Active Directory domains and OUs, users, groups and computers, as well as Azure AD users, groups, roles, applications and permissions.
Capture historical configuration information on Active Directory users, groups, organizational units and permissions, and view detailed change history reports. Gain in-depth insight for historical analysis and compliance reporting.
Scale to Active Directory environments of any size and geographic distribution. Schedule collections during off-peak hours to minimize the impact of data collection on network and server performance, and leverage the distributed collection architecture for load balancing.
Ensure stakeholders get the reports they need when they need them with automated report generation and flexible scheduling of report delivery.
Honor departmental and business function boundaries by enabling auditors, help desk staff, IT managers and other stakeholders to get exactly the reports they need and nothing more.
Perform effective data analysis that meets the unique informational needs of your organization using predefined reports or creating new reports. Customize with advanced filtering and export multiple formats, including PDF, HTML, MHT, RTF, XLS, XLSX, CSV, text and images.
Disk space requirements will vary with the Enterprise Reporter components you install:
100 GB or more for larger environments
The Enterprise Reporter database is the storage location of all data collected for reporting. As such, the amount of hard disk space required is directly related to the amount of data being collected. The Database Size Estimator tool shipped with Enterprise Reporter can help determine how much space will be required.
SQL Server performance is needed to support inserting data into the database tables and to support querying that data for reporting purposes. To improve the performance of data collection or reporting, consider enhancing the SQL Server memory and processor.
Larger environments may have additional requirements for memory, processor, and hard disk space. There are many factors that can effect these requirements. For additional information please see release notes.
The following operating systems are supported for Enterprise Reporter components.
NOTE: It is not recommended that the server or console be installed on a domain controller.
The follow versions of Active Roles are supported as targets of Active Directory discoveries. See the Active Roles web site for hardware and software requirements for your version of Active Roles:
Enterprise Reporter can be configured to send discovery information to the following versions of IT Security Search. See the IT Security Search web site for the hardware and software requirements for your version of IT Security Search.
The following versions of SQL Server® are supported for the Enterprise Reporter database. See the Microsoft® web site for the hardware and software requirements for your version of SQL Server®:
SSL Encryption of SQL Server Connections using Certificates
Enterprise Reporter can be configured to work with a SQL Server® instance. To secure communications while working with Enterprise Reporter, data sent over connections to the SQL Server can be encrypted using an SSL certificate.
The steps required to configure this encryption are as follows.
The following required software is required for Enterprise Reporter.
To collect Active Roles information, the following software is required on the computer where the Enterprise Reporter Configuration Manager is installed and on the computer where the Enterprise Reporter node is installed:
For more information and installation instructions, see the Active Roles Quick Start Guide. The following additional considerations are required:
To collect Exchange® 2007 information, the following additional considerations are required:
To collect Exchange mailbox folders, the following additional considerations are required:
Role: ApplicationImpersonation –User:Administrator
To collect OneDrive information, the following additional software is required:
NOTE: PowerShell 3.0 and Microsoft SharePoint Online Management Shell are required on the node machines to collect OneDrive configuration settings.
NOTE: In addition, for OneDrive configuration settings to be collected successfully, an authorized connection must be established to the SharePoint Online service. To allow for credentials to be specified for your tenant, the “LegacyAuthProtocols” setting must be enabled on your tenant. To set this on your tenant, run the following commands using the Microsoft SharePoint Online Management Shell. This action must be performed on any node machine with Microsoft SharePoint Online Management Shell installed.
Set-ExecutionPolicy -Scope Process -ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned
Import-Module -Name Microsoft.Online.SharePoint.PowerShell
Connect-SPOService -Url "<full tenant name>"
Set-SPOTenant -LegacyAuthProtocolsEnable $True
To collect Azure information, the following additional software is required:
NOTE: Microsoft Azure Active Directory Module for Windows PowerShell is required on the node machines to collect multi-factor authentication attributes for Azure Users.
The following services are required on the Enterprise Reporter server and nodes.
The following services must be enabled on discovery targets for collections.
