- I discovered that admin users had admin rights on their normal user accounts in addition to separate admin accounts, and was able to support getting that resolved.
- I found several employees storing unsecured user names and passwords on their devices or the network, and required they switch to a more secure storage option or delete the file.
- Also convinced IT to conduct some clean-up in our environment, eliminating some empty security groups, accounts with passwords that don't expire, disabled/inactive users, etc.

- Saving time required to prepare various reports.
- Netwrix Auditor is a good system to audit data and access to systems on your network. Compared to other auditing systems it is much less expensive. We moved from Varonis Auditing to Netwrix and were able to audit all of our servers in our infrastructure at much less cost than just auditing the NetApp file servers with Varonis. Although Varonis could audit the other types of server, it would be a new license (cost) to perform this.
- We use Netwrix to audit our SQL Servers, and the database administrator really likes the auditing that it performs. He uses it to help application developers find problems in their code. Although he could do this previously, it is much easier with Netwrix Auditor.
- We currently perform a lot of US government contracts and when we tell them about the items that Netwrix can audit, they are quite happy that we are using this product for this work.
- One of the biggest (if not the biggest) objectives of any IT department is to keep our users' data secure. This software, together with a firewall, end-point protection, and encouraging security best practices, helps us achieve that objective.
- Our IT department is small for the number of users and clients we support. Netwrix Auditor helps us streamline day to day tasks with its reports showing us day to day administrative information for our servers. This saves us time and allows us to focus on fulfilling our other duties.
- Netwrix Auditor has allowed us to easier comply with providing information for audits as needed
- When auditors come asking questions about security changes you can quickly create reports with what they need.
- Positive, it has allowed law enforcement to have a better chain of custody documentation
- The system pays for itself as it saves us in man power with troubleshooting when accounts get locked out. We know exactly where its happening.
- It has saved a ton of time with password reset times.
- It has prevented data breaches.
- It is low overhead.
- Very positive. Low cost for all it provides. You don't need to waste technicians time pulling logs manually from many servers to extrapulate data. Pays for itself immediately.
- 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.
