Audit, Alert and Recover Active Directory Changes
Trying to keep up with all the changes made in Active Directory can be an extremely time-consuming and complex process, with delays in discovering and addressing changes possibly leading to business disruption, not to mention the security and compliance implications of such changes.
Maintain Business Continuity with PowerBroker
PowerBroker helps IT organizations meet PCI, SOX, HIPAA, and other compliance requirements by auditing, alerting, and recovering Active Directory changes in real time. Pinpoint changes that introduce security risks, jeopardize compliance, or impact operations via the solution’s real-time tracking of who performed each change, what changed (including pre/post values), when the change occurred, and where the change was made.
“The PowerBroker Auditor Suite, including PowerBroker Auditor, is a formidable set of tools for administrators dealing with Microsoft-centric technologies.” — Kuppinger Cole
Increase Efficiency with Centralized Auditing and Recovery
PowerBroker Auditor and Recovery for Active Directory includes a centralized database to enable both auditing and recovery of AD data, delivering a broader set of capabilities than native AD auditing — without the operational impacts. With PowerBroker Recovery for Active Directory, you have a continuous backup technology that enables you to both detect and roll back changes. You can therefore quickly undo accidental or unwanted changes via a single console, without requiring a point-in-time backup.
REAL-TIME, CENTRALIZED AD AUDITING AND ALERTING
Audit, alert, and report on all changes made in Active Directory in real time, without relying on difficult and cumbersome native event logs.
AUDIT & RECOVERY INTEGRATION
Complete auditing and recovery solutions that track and alert to changes across the Windows environment.
NATIVE AUDITING NOT NEEDED
Does not require any GPO changes or native System Access Control Lists to be managed or defined.
CONTINUOUS BACKUP FOR EASY RECOVERY
Store every object change in a continuous change log providing complete object backup and recovery to ensure uninterrupted business operations.
INTEGRATION WITH NATIVE TOOLS
Native tool integration speeds time to resolution and simplifies administration.
AGENTLESS OR SINGLE-AGENT
More than one agent is never required. All Auditor and Recovery modules that require an agent use a common footprint to mitigate performance impacts on domain controllers.
