Group Policy Auditing
Given the risks associated with Group Policy changes, we think it’s important that organizations have a structured and proactive approach to Group Policy auditing. We believe that, due to how busy and stretched the modern IT department is, the solution should be easy to install, simple to use and realistically priced. With this in mind, we created LepideAuditor for Group Policy. We’ve made it easy to instantly see who, what, where and when changes are made, and even allow you to roll back the entire Group Policy Object to its previous ideal state. It comes with more than 40 predefined Group Policy audit reports and real-time alerts that make light work of what would otherwise be a very manual process.
How We Help to Audit Group Policy Changes
Our Group Policy auditing solution can help you monitor every change made to your Group Policy objects in real time. You can easily track any changes made to security setting policies, password policies, software restriction policies and much more with their before and after values.
- Intuitive DashboardThe Radar is the first screen that appears upon starting LepideAuditor for Group Policy Objects. It displays all changes made to group policies in an easy-to-understand format. Our solution shows the top 10 modified GPOs, GPO modification trends, top active administrators who have made the most changes and other trending graphs. In addition to this, you can view the all changes by trend, changes by criticality, top active admins and more for the entire domain (Active Directory, Group Policy and Exchange Server). The LiveFeed also shows real-time updates about changes made to Group Policies.
- Granular ReportsWe keep track of all Group Policy changes as they happen, showing you all changes made to specific policies, links, states and more. We offer a single log for a single change displaying simply who, what, where and when the changes were made. We then provide this data through over 40 Group Policy audit reports to help you address all manner of security, IT operations and compliance challenges. All of our reports are easy to search, filter, customize and save as needed. You can customize any of the modification reports to focus only on specific policies or operations. These reports can be saved on the disk and delivered at scheduled intervals through email or by saving at a shared location in CSV, PDF or MHT formats. You can also delegate access to selected reports and users through a secured Web Console. Read more
- Real Time Alerting To fully complement your reporting, it’s vital that you get notifications of changes as they happen. Using our real-time alerting feature, we can alert you based on the condition of a single event or operate on threshold conditions determined from time and event-based criteria. We deliver these alerts either direct to the console, as updates in the LiveFeed, as emails or as push notifications to the LepideAuditor App. The threshold feature allows you to send a single alert for similar types of changes occurring in the defined interval. You can further enhance the alerting mechanism with our script execution feature that lets you execute your customized script to perform automated actions upon detecting critical events.
- Rollback Changes It’s inevitable that at some point a change will occur within your Group Policy that you did not intend for or want. Using our solution, we enable you to instantly restore an entire Group Policy Object to a previous ideal state whilst leaving all other Group Policy Objects intact. This feature lets you maintain the security of your IT environment. Read more
- Compliance Reports Concerned about meeting compliance mandates? LepideAuditor offers numerous inbuilt reports dedicated to helping you satisfy multiple compliance mandates, including HIPAA, PCI, FISMA, GLBA, SOX, GDPR and more. Specific predefined reports for Group Policies are also included in the solution to enable you to satisfy these difficult mandates quickly and easily. Read more
- Mobile App To enable IT teams to keep track of Group Policy changes while on the move, we introduced a mobile app for LepideAuditor. This App is available for any Apple device (such as an iPhone or iPad) or to any Android phone or tablet. It provides a live feed of Group Policy changes, such as modifications in user configuration policy, audit policy, password policies and more. Read more
