ADAudit Plus

Audit of sensitive data in the organization

ADAudit Plus can monitor, report and audit all changes occurring in the entire Active Directory: starting with user logins, going through adding new accounts and assigning them permissions, ending with information when a given server was turned off and by whom. The tool audits not only domain controllers, but also workstations, member servers, file servers and disk arrays.

All this from the level of one web console, ensuring quick and convenient access to all data. In addition, the system can alert us in real time. ADAudit Plus replaces tedious log searching with scripts and saves Windows administrators a lot of time.

Active Directory security & audit

ADAudit Plus enables real-time monitoring and auditing of AD based on events occurring in it. Using them, the system can create alerts and alarm profiles through e-mail or SMS notifications.

In the event of an unwanted event, ADAudit Plus can execute a pre-configured script to prevent unwanted changes due to unauthorized access to the environment.

Archive historical data

ADAudit Plus provides periodic data archiving to manage disk space. This can enable reports to be viewed such as Active Directory user login history, password change history, and other information from archived audit data. The completed reports can be exported to XLS, CSV, PDF and Excel formats.

Built-in reports module

The tool has over 200 built-in reports, that can view every action performed. In addition to out-of-the-box reports, ADAudit Plus can define custom reports as per the needs.

Moreover, it enables the creation of cyclical schedules of the execution of these reports and sending the generated file to the path specified in the configuration.

Notifications sent to the administrators

ADAudit Plus can configure administrator notifications. For each event recorded by the system, the content of the message that the administrator receives can be defined.

In the case of a large number of notifications, the system can create a time interval during which only one message/notification can be sent.

Support multiple domains centrally

ADAudit Plus is a multi-domain, which means that many domains can be connected to it and can be monitored simultaneously in real time. Thanks to this, administrators will have the latest information about the domain environment from a single web console.
