Netwrix Auditor

Netwrix Auditor is well suited to perform audit data collection on many types of servers that require audit data to be collected. It runs fairly quickly and usually informs you if something went wrong in the data collection. They do need to have better documentation and some form of internal documentation to help the users who understand what is happening in their system to help them through the process of figuring out when something went wrong.

Suitable for any organization looking for effective risk and compliance management.

It might be less appropriate for organizations which don’t have any risk or compliance obligations and not regulated by authorities

Pros

Netwrix Auditor

  • Netwrix Auditor sends out warnings to users when their passwords are close to expiring. This saves us some headache, because if they have any problems with changing their password, we can help them before they get locked out.
  • The notifications for multiple failed logons is a lifesaver. Very useful for spotting suspicious activity!
  • I love the way that you can create your own custom notifications and reports through the "Search" function. You can pick the "What", "Where", and "When" for the event you want to monitor and set up email email reports for them.

  • Introduces efficiency in business processes to reduce cost.
  • Automation which reduces time and errors.
  • An incredible amount customization capability for the platform.

Cons

Netwrix Auditor

  • They have a screen capture function that I have never been able to get to work properly. However, I have never called their support on this issue so it is not necessarily a big ding against them. I am only mildly interested in this feature. We have enough network monitoring so I already know what my users are doing I don't need a capture.

  • They release time to time updates, which causes issues in the GUI. However, one has to be careful while installing the update.
  • There is no open and free academy to learn more about the tool.
  • One cannot stay to a particular product version, they have to move to the next version to keep up with the changes.

We have renewed already the licensing of the product minus SQL Server and Oracle Database because the organisation believes the modules are very expensive and have identified a different product for auditing DatabasesOther modules are very important like the User Activity monitor, AD queries that we can not get from the native AD itself or you have to run complicated powershell scripts!Easy to use interfacePre-defined ReportsEasy way to subscribe to important alerts e.g Privilege account group membership changes

The product has user friend pre-defined queries which takes off the stress and horrors of having to query Active Directory with complex Powershell scripts!You can subscribe to certain functions when they are done and you get an alert e.g privileged accounts actions and you don't need to have programming skillsThe product has a desktop version of the software and donot have to login to the server all the time you need to use it.You can see very fast the posture of your environment of the overview screen and deduce what exactly is wrong and what has to be done

Good tool to get the information communicated, approval workflow, and easy to add new findings/questionnaires. Seems to be compatible with different browsers and little downtime. Only request for improvement is to add an export feature with fewer clicks. Maybe batch export.

Customer support has always been fast and helpful when we run into any issues. The smaller issues are usually resolved within a day or two. It is great support and I feel like I am in good hands anytime an issue comes up. However, we don't run into many issues

Slow response time and new versions don’t make sense at first. We experienced delays when the feature that grades responses didn’t work. We had to wait for the new version and then reconfigure. Good news is that they eventually fixed this feature and it has worked well since. Also, the new color schedule still doesn’t show some buttons for navigation. I’m able to get this to work because I remember where they were on the screen.

Alternatives Considered

Netwrix Auditor

Netwrix Auditor is a visibility and governance platform that allows you to monitor changes, configurations and access in IT infrastructure of important IT infrastructure components such as Active Directory, event logs, Exchange, Office 365, SQL Server, and others. Apart from that - what’s wonderful about this tool is that you can view before/after snapshots of your managed data. For instance, you can view Group Policy data as it existed before one of your colleagues made some blocking edits to the domain policy.

Both have similar functions, but it was decided that a separate application was desired for Risk and Compliance Systems. This was partly due to Line of Business Ownership and separation of duties

Return on Investment

Netwrix Auditor

  • Neutral on its effectiveness - Difficult to set up, poor support response from the supplier, but it does the basics well. We might not make the same decision with the benefit of hindsight.
  • If you lack technical skills in AD security and have little other choice for monitoring tools and automated alerts then this may be a good purchase for you.
  • With the stability issues that we are fighting with, I would say currently this has not yet met the business objectives set for this purchase.

  • I feel like this tool's limits our ability to have updated policies and procedures. It seems like the application is so archaic that we have to scale our policies down so they will fit within the system. This is not an optimal way to run an IT organization.
  • It has allowed us to standardize all vendor contact info and risk policies in one place. That is really the only value we are getting from the application.
  • It also seems to have poor integration options with other apps. The data in RSA Archer should be sent to tons of other systems as it is important but this seems overly complex and limited options for actually achieving this.
