Intuitive, customizable dashboards help you get critical audit information with regards to the risk to Active Directory. A Live feed of changes helps you stay on top of this risk.
The majority of security threats originate with AD. Detailed, real-time Active Directory auditing, combined with machine learning anomaly spotting, helps you detect these risks faster.
Keep an eye on what your most high-risk users are doing in your Active Directory, and spot changes in user behavior that could indicate ransomware, brute force attacks, privilege abuse and more.
Analyze the effective permissions of your users and spot permission changes that might lead to excessive access to sensitive data.
Detailed Active Directory audit logs give you the critical information and context you need in a single pane of glass to streamline your investigations.
Generate pre-defined Active Directory audit reports that are mapped to specific compliance regulations, including GDPR, HIPAA, PCI, CCPA and more.
How to Use Lepide to Monitor and Audit Active Directory Changes for Better Security and Compliance
Our risk assessment dashboards give you all the critical audit information you need about the state of your Active Directory Security.
Easily audit Active Directory permissions and configurations changes and spot potentially dangerous security states that need immediate attention.
Active Directory structures can become complex and difficult to understand as an organization grows and evolves. Attackers can easily exploit a lack of visibility over this structure. Lepide gives you the ability to easily see who has what levels of access in Active Directory and how they got them so that you can easily visualize your AD structure.
Machine learning backed behavior analytics learns what the normal behavior of your Active Directory users looks like and will alert you when anomalies are detected.
Audit and reverse Active Directory permission changes so that you can maintain a policy of least privilege and better govern access to datagovern access to data.
Automated responses can be triggered from real time alerts to help mitigate potential Active Directory threats and attacks.
We offer a single log for a single change displaying who, what, where and when the changes are made. We then provide this data to you through more than 100 relevant AD audit reports to help you address all manner of compliance, security, and IT operations challenges. Each report can be further customized with advanced filtration, searching, sorting, and other auditing functions. These Active Directory audit reports can also be shared with other users through a secure web console. Read more
Strange logon/logoff activity, such as users logging on out of office hours, or multiple failed logons in a short space of time, can be the signs of a potential threat. Auditing logon/logoff details for all users from the Event Viewer is like looking for a needle in a haystack. Our Active Directory auditing tool simplifies this search with simple yet detailed Active Directory auditing reports on failed logon events, concurrent logon sessions, and users logged on to multiple computers. Our AD auditing tool also sends real-time and threshold-based alerts for successful user logon or logoff and can spot anomalies in logon/logoff behavior.
Our AD auditing tool periodically captures backup snapshots of Active Directory objects and saves their state. You can use these snapshots to generate historical reports on the state of users, groups, computers, and organizational units (the four important objects) at any given point in time. It gives you a clear picture of exactly when any of these objects were created or modified and what it’s properties are.
What We Audit in Active Directory
Whenever an object created, deleted or modified in Active Directory, our Active Directory auditing tool will generate a report, providing all details about the particular object that has been created, modified or deleted and a real time alert can be sent if required. In this report, you will be able to see who created, deleted or modified the object, the object path, class, when it was created, modified or deleted and from where, all in one easy to read report.
In any IT environment, it is advised that you lock accounts that are inactive for a long period of time or on which suspicious activities were taking place. However, locking an Active Directory user account can impact other activities linked to that account, which could be a mess left to the IT team to clean up. Lepide’s Active Directory Auditing tool comes helps you better handle user account lockouts, by auditing the account lockouts and providing the option to unlock or reset their passwords. You can also investigate which tasks, services, or processes will be impacted because of this account lockout.
Our AD Audit software offers you dedicated reports to help keep track of the security settings of Active Directory objects. In addition to permissions, you can also compare audit settings, and ownership of an object between intervals. You have the option to track all changes made in audit settings and object ownership, and also view them on any particular date. Our solution lets you search for an object in the audit entries or see a list of owners of a selected object.
From time to time, a user account may be modified in error or a Junior Administrator may accidentally delete an OU. Our rollback feature enables you to reverse changes made in a single click. It restores everything to exactly as it was before the change – including group memberships, attributes, permissions and more. Read more
Lepide’s Active Directory audit software helps overcome the limitations of native Active Directory auditing by showing all group membership changes over a given period in a single “Group Modifications” report. You can see the answers to the “who, what, where and when” Active Directory auditing questions in one, easy-to-read place.
Lepide Active Directory Auditor lets you track the members of administrative groups in Active Directory to give you a clear picture of the privileged users. Our solution also offers a way to track all activities of Active Directory privileged users and sends real-time or threshold-based alerts for any critical change made by a privileged user account.
