Auditing the Active Directory is quite important for the organizations as it ensures the integrity and safety of their IT infrastructure. Unwanted changes inside a non-secured environment can create an irreparable loss that can't be compensated later on. Neither native tools meet the latest requirements of regulatory compliances nor do they have any mechanism to restore the unwanted changes.
Native auditing suffers from critical drawbacks. Not only it shows every change log in raw formats, but it also lacks long-term storage. Moreover, there is no system to alert the Administrators about any unwanted change in real-time.
LepideAuditor for Active Directory is a powerful tool to track and control Active Directory changes to maintain a highly secured AD environment. As a part of LepideAuditor Suite, LAAD inherits its all the features and benefits. It tracks all day-to-day changes in AD, generates alerts when something undesirable takes place, and makes it possible to roll back changes to give complete control over AD.
