IRVINE, CA, October 14, 2014 – Netwrix Corporation, the #1 provider of change and configuration auditing software, today announced the release of Netwrix Auditor 6.5, offering comprehensive monitoring and auditing capabilities which streamline compliance, strengthen security and simplify root cause analysis across the entire IT infrastructure, including file servers and shares. Delivering complete visibility into who changed what, when and where as well as informing about the before and after values of any modification made, Netwrix Auditor 6.5 transforms complicated audit logs into a human-readable audit trail and ensures that the entire IT infrastructure is constantly monitored. 

Netwrix Auditor 6.5 also enables auditing of any configuration changes from any point in time and archives historic audit data. These capabilities, coupled with comprehensive change auditing, help ensure that security policies in place are working and the risk of insider misuse is minimized.

The ability to secure sensitive data should become a number one priority for organizations of all sizes,” said Michael Fimin, CEO and Co-Founder of Netwrix. “Information leaks have devastating consequences, including loss in customer demand, revenue and reputation. Organizations should establish security policies that are able to detect insider misuse and track malicious changes made to sensitive information. The new release of Netwrix Auditor 6.5 is an exact answer to market demand that provides complete visibility across file servers and monitors privileged accounts, ensuring that data leaks are detected on early stages.

The new Netwrix Auditor 6.5 includes the following key features:

  • Detection and prevention of security breaches on file servers and storage appliances:

    • Complete visibility into who has access to which files across multiple file servers, EMC devices and NetApp filers.

    • Analysis and comparison of file system state and permissions for any point in time.

  • Enhanced screen activity recording of privileged users, allowing capture, search and review of all user activity, even if users have multiple monitors.

  • Over 30 enhancements to improve scalability, performance and usability of Active Directory and file servers change auditing.

Netwrix Auditor is a very powerful product that is simple to use,” said Daniel Boyer, IT professional at Jefferson College, MO. “Having the ability to know who changed what, when and where on a file server is very helpful. From what I have seen so far, it has many great features that make it simple to get the exact audit data you need.

Netwrix Auditor is the #1 change and configuration auditing platform that enables complete visibility into who did what, when and where across the entire IT infrastructure. This streamlines compliance, strengthens security and simplifies root cause analysis.
