Active Directory Auditing
Active Directory is the most imperative part of any domain in a network. That is why improving security of Active Directory and answering to external and internal audits of Active directory infrastructure are the topmost concerns.
A single perilous change in AD can bring down the whole IT functionality of any organization. In fact, every organization must know who is doing what change to where and when this was done. Various changes needs to be done in a single day to satisfy various technological needs of business and therefore, it’s significant to audit Active Directory regularly.
Why we need automated tools, while we can do all this with native auditing as well? The results given by native auditing remains scattered across tools which leads to poor log management. It’s impossible to keep track of all changes and hence, data loss occurs. To restore Active Directory to a previous stable state you may need a huge investment of resources. Native Event Viewer and Schedule tasks feature may possibly not bear out the difficult reporting necessities of Active Directory to meet internal and external regulatory requirements.
