Introduction to Enterprise Reporter for Windows Servers
Enterprise Reporter for Windows Servers provides deep visibility into the configuration of Microsoft Windows Server, NAS devices and OneDrive for Business. Armed with this information, organizations can perform security assessments, configuration change history review, pre-and post-migration analyses, and more. You’ll know who can access your data, as well as whether it can be shared with others inside or outside the organization. As a result, you’ll be empowered to perform more informed strategic planning and proactive management of the IT infrastructure.
Extend your visibility beyond file servers and OneDrive to other on-premises and Office 365 environments with Enterprise Reporter Suite.
Gain insights into permissions for on-premises and cloud-based resources with easy-to-use reports on who can access:
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.
Gain visibility into the configuration of critical IT assets in Windows file servers, NAS devices and OneDrive for Business to comply with security best practices, internal policies and external regulations.
Determine which users and groups have access to resources across your entire environment, including both on-premises and cloud-based storage. Tighten security by removing any excessive access permissions using Security Explorer, which is included with Enterprise Reporter Suite.
Make sure each local security configuration is aligned with domain-wide policies. Check local security policies, membership of local administrative groups and other security configuration information stored in registry keys.
Capture historical configuration information on Windows Server and view detailed change history reports. Gain in-depth insight for historical analysis and compliance reporting.
Scale to Windows environments of any size. 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.
Reduce database storage requirements and save more change history data by comparing Windows Server discoveries and storing only the changes.
Perform efficient, effective data analysis and satisfy the unique information needs of your organization using predefined reports or by creating new reports with even more attributes. Customize any report with advanced filtering, and choose from multiple formats, including PDF, HTML, MHT, RTF, XLS, XLSX, CSV, text and images.
Ensure stakeholders get the reports they need when they need them with automated report generation and delivery and flexible scheduling.
