Active Directory Auditing for Free

Native auditing simply isn’t powerful enough to meet the modern day audit requirements of Active Directory. That’s why we created a free version of our award-winning Active Directory auditing tool. With LepideAuditor Freeware you can see the changes made to users, groups, group memberships, organizational units, permissions, and other objects. Once installed, it’s yours, for free, forever!

Freeware Features


Installing, configuring and using LepideAuditor Freeware is very easy. You can see the configuration changes using the predefined report and intuitive radar tab.

Instant visibility

Our in-built dashboard consolidates audit data from Active Directory objects to get reliable audit logs. You can also quickly view audit changes 24 hours a day and easily identify any potential security risks.

Noise-free auditing environment

The solution collects raw logs and transforms them into meaningful, precise and actionable information about user activity, without any system noise.

Better than Native Auditing

Unlike native auditing, the Administrator are not required to delve deep into the unmanageable pool of event logs. Our solution shows only one single meaningful record for a single change that is easily notifiable.

“All Environment Changes” report gives information on all changes made to Active Directory Configuration.
Also, you get answers to the ‘when and where’ questions, essential for auditing.
