How to Use Lepide to Audit SharePoint Changes
for Better Security and Compliance
Our easy-to-use, graphical dashboard gives you a bird’s eye view of your whole SharePoint Server environment. It enables you to instantly determine the total number of changes made to SharePoint Server, the total number of changes per administrator and per source. Lepide SharePoint Server Auditor even allows you to identify change/event anomalies by displaying change trends over time.
In today’s next-generation, SharePoint’s storage capacity, availability, and all around access makes it a valuable solution. Because of this, SharePoint becomes a target for stricter regulatory compliance when compared to other components. We provide you with predefined reports available in multiple relevant formats to help you address PCI, SOX, GLBA, HIPAA, FISMA, GDPR and other compliance requirements. Read more
We help you keep track of all changes as they happen. Our solutions offer a single log displaying the “who, what, when and where” details of every change made. We then provide this data to you via hundreds of relevant reports to help you address PCI, SOX, GLBA, HIPAA, GDPR and other reporting requirements along with all manner of security and IT operations tasks. All of the reports are delivered on schedule either in CSV, MHT, or PDF. You can also delegate the rights to users to view the specific reports via secure web console.
The most important aspect of keeping track of SharePoint changes is to receive alerts on those changes in real time. This way, you can be sure that no critical change occurs without you knowing. Our real time alerting feature will notify you of configuration changes in SharePoint in the form of Live updates to console, as emails or as notifications to Lepide Mobile App. You can customize the alerting with advanced filtration and threshold limits. Be proactive in securing your IT environment with an inbuilt option to execute your customized script upon detecting any critical event. This Incident Responsive Action can disable or delete a user, shut down your computer and more.
What We Audit in SharePoint Server
The way SharePoint organizes its data can be somewhat complicated, and the implications of one wrong change can have serious consequences. Subsequently, we think it’s important to audit all aspects of SharePoint including server farms, library, sites, collections, lists, users and more. Lepide SharePoint Auditor enables quicker, easier and more secure SharePoint Server auditing. Our tool also lets you translate events into simple terms and stores data in one centralized and secure database.
Are you able to see who has what permission granted to a SharePoint Site, Library or List? SharePoint data access is controlled by the permissions given to users. What would happen if permissions were changed without notice? This kind of situation should be avoided at all costs. Auditing permission changes for SharePoint Server is, therefore, a necessity. Lepide’s SharePoint Auditing tool audits permission changes and shows what has been changed, who initiated the change, when and from where the change was made. It also sends you real-time alerts (with filtration and threshold limits, if required) on every permission change.
Not all Active Directory users should have access to SharePoint. When deciding who should have access to your SharePoint Server, audit the user profile changes to determine details of user creation, modifications, and deletions. Lepide SharePoint Server Auditor displays reports on modifications within the user profiles and alerts you on these changes.
A key feature of our auditing platform is our robust report customization functionality. We provide a logical and intuitive interface where you can search based on object path, user, and resource as needed, apply multiple filters, sort the report, make searches, and do other auditing tasks. It simplifies the work of even the most complex of IT auditing.
While you may want certain users to see specific SharePoint audit reports, it’s quite likely that you don’t want everyone to have full access to the console. We offer a secure web-based console in which IT teams can grant access to only specific reports to be accessed as we think it’s important given the sensitivity of the audit data. We also allow the encryption of the data while at rest.
