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.

It does exactly what it needs to. The only times I've had serious issues with rolling out to a vendor is when they have a "contractual agreement" to only use their solution. Almost every vendor that I've worked with and shown this product to has been skeptical for the first 5 minutes and fully converted to liking the ease of use of the product by 10 minutes

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.

SecureLink

  • Easy to setup on a client PC or server for access
  • Organizes client connections by gatekeeper so it is easy to find what you need
  • File transfer option is great for uploading files to client servers

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.

SecureLink

  • Java based. Always an issue. I know they are working on this and it will be Javaless if we need it. I know that Java can cause issues across the board and I understand the need of it, but it does not make it any better when there are Java issues.
  • Stronger integration with the Active Directory. Currently its only read-only, which is good and bad.
  • I would love to see an App. I know they are working on this as well.

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

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

The employees at Securelink have always been responsive and seem to be invested in the success of my company. They truly understand what their product means to us so if there is a problem, they are always willing to help. In the rare event that something is found on their end, they will be proactive and reach out to someone to help and get something on calendar for a fix

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.

Securelink seems to work better than LogMein for a large enterprise group. Our company has over 10,000 different connections and securelink manages them well.

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.

SecureLink

  • I've found that Securelink allows me to get a vendor access to an application for support purposes much faster than a provisioned VPN account and the red tape around this. I can set up a vendor to access an application suite in a half hour and it will be more secure than regular provisioning.
  • The ROI is yet to be seen on this, but it certainly makes Compliance, Internal Audit, and Legal very happy, which helps everybody.
  • Internally, there is much more push back and it has been problematic. For a tech, to have to log in to a server and navigate to a system is considered cumbersome, when before all they had to do was open up Putty or RDP to a server to get in. The only way to combat this is to force them to use Securelink by removing rights. Near impossible for the domain admins.
