NetWrix Corporation, a provider of IT infrastructure auditing and compliance solutions, recently announced the release of Active Directory Change Reporter 7.1 designed to fill gaps left by Microsoft's native auditing. NetWrix is in the business of providing solutions to criticall IT systems and knows all to well how important good auditing, reporting and actionable intelligence is in securing systems for both the public and private sectors.

On the heels of Cyber Monday, one of the busiest online shopping days of the year, it's important to reflect on just how critical it is to ensure that proper care is taken when delgating access, particularly when it comes to admin accounts. As opposed to threats outside the organization, inadequate admin access was cited as "one of the most egregious IT risk gaps in many organizations" according to a study by Enterprise Management Associates.

Active Directory Change Reporter 7.1 provides the tools necessary to easily track changes made to Active Directory and Group Policy such as permission delegation and schema changes. Using proprietary AuditIntelligence™ technology, Active Directory Change Reporter enables users to transform raw audit data into meaningful and actionable intelligence designed to drive security efforts of organizations IT staff.

 "This release builds on our leadership in the Active Directory auditing space with improved vendor support, tighter product integration and the delivery of additional actionable information through our AuditIntelligence™ technology," says Robert Bobel, Director of Product Management for NetWrix Corporation.

NetWrix provides specialized solutions for private as well as government agencies who need to meet Security, Compliance and Access Government requirements such as GLBA, SOX, HIPAA and PCI. Data is archived automatically and can recreate an audit trail of changes for up to 2 years.
