Improve compliance with security best practices, internal policies and external regulations with visibility into all critical IT configurations in your Microsoft environment, including groups, roles, mailboxes, public folders, permissions, security configurations, storage accounts and much more.
Report, review and take action on enterprise-wide permissions from a single, centralized view. Back up permissions to establish a baseline and make targeted or bulk changes with the ability to rollback as needed. Backups can even be restored to an alternate location to ensure continuity on new servers.
Know who has access to what resources across your enterprise network. Tighten security and pass IT audits by ensuring that access is provided strictly on a need-to-know basis.
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 migration or consolidation project with increased visibility into user and group dependencies, object matches and potential conflicts, and unused or disabled accounts as well as where resources, computers, files and folders exist. Easily decide what needs to be migrated before you begin and ensure the correct data and permissions were migrated after the move.
Quickly discover and report on what Microsoft Teams exist in your Office 365 environment, who the Team members are, and how the Team is being used. Enterprise Reporter for Office 365 makes it easy to stay on top of Microsoft Teams growth to avoid group sprawl and monitor usage.
Optimize Office 365 license allocation and service plan decisions as well as Azure resource usage. Gain visibility into cloud licenses and subscriptions, virtual machines and disk deployment, including how many, how large, how they are configured and more, so you can save on unnecessary and under-utilized resources.
Report on and manage storage capacity planning and allocation on a variety of devices, including Windows file servers, network attached storage (NAS) and storage area networks (SANs).
Scale to 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.
Reduce database storage requirements and save more change history data by comparing discoveries and storing only the changes.
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.

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.
