‘ASTORS’ Competitor Netwrix Corp. Releases In-Depth Report on IT Risks

While the data breach threat continues to evolve, Netwrix Corporation is working to meet the global market demand for solutions that strengthen security and help organizations pass compliance audits easier.

ASTOR platinumNetwrix Auditor, the 2016 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Program Platinum Award Winner for Best Cyber Auditing & Compliance Solution, and a competitor in the 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, enables control over changes, configurations and access in hybrid IT environments to help organizations protect their data regardless of its location.

The new Netwrix Corporation 2017 IT Risks In-Depth Report continues and complements the Netwrix 2017 IT Risks Report released earlier this year.

Netwrix Auditor combines critical features, like cross-system reporting, Google-like interactive search, data archiving and object restore capability to help organizations mitigate cyber threats, including ransomware and aberrant insider activities.

The platform also provides alerts about patterns that violate corporate security policies and indicate a possible cyber threat to help organizations investigate suspicious behavior faster.

Key benefits of Netwrix Auditor include:


  • Netwrix Auditor tracks data access and changes to data, user permissions and system configurations, and provides integrated view of what’s going on in their IT environments.
  • This enables organizations to easy detect and investigate suspicious activities (e.g. privilege escalation, changes to security settings and inappropriate data access), which greatly helps to mitigate risk of data breaches.

“As a government entity, we are a target for both intruders and malicious insiders,” explains Jeremy George, System Administrator, Johnson County, Kansas

“In case of a security incident, Netwrix Auditor will show us what is truly going on in the IT environment in just a click of a mouse.”

“Whether we need a full user activity summary or want to investigate a particular event, Netwrix Auditor will quickly provide the results in easy-to-read format, while before it was like looking for a needle in a haystack.”

“ The ability to set up alerts on specific events is also invaluable.”

  • Detailed information showed in the reports allows organizations to prove that access to sensitive data is limited and user activity is carefully monitored.
  • The audit trail is stored in the audit archive for up to 10 years and can be accessed at any time for investigations.
  • Netwrix Auditor also delivers compliance reports tailored to specific industry standards like PCI DSS, HIPAA, FISMA and other to make audits less time-consuming and stressful for companies.

“With Netwrix Auditor, it takes me only 30–40 min per day to go through the reports to see if security policies are being followed and if anything requires my attention,” said Bryan Baynes, Network Administrator, Peoples Savings and Loan Company.

“Exams and audits go very smoothly. I can provide any required audit data and prove that information security controls have been in place at all times.”

“It’s an easy-to-use solution that enormously simplifies security and compliance tasks.”

Uninterrupted performance.

  • By using Interactive Search and state-in-time reports organizations can quickly resolve issues before end-users even have a reason to submit a support ticket.
  • Netwrix Auditor automates security monitoring tasks and allows organizations to keep up with changes to critical applications to ensure system availability for their customers and employees.

“Prior to deploying Netwrix Auditor, we had to manually monitor user activity in our environment,” commented Finn Horn, IT Specialist, Roskilde Municipality

“You could be looking at 5–6 domain controllers without even knowing what you are searching for.”

“Netwrix Auditor consolidates everything, so it is very easy to understand what is going on in the infrastructure. We receive a report, skim it through very fast and get the answer.”

Value for money.

  • Netwrix provides unified reporting, alerting, video recording and archive storage in a single platform, so there’s no need to invest in standalone products.
  • Having decided to expand the auditing scope, an organization will only need to purchase additional licenses or take advantage of RESTful API and develop a custom script to monitor any other application, or choose from available free add-ons published in Netwrix Add-on Store.

“Netwrix Auditor proved to be easy to deploy and use, and had simple and reasonable licensing model,” added Robert Harrison, William Woods University.  

“If we decide to monitor more systems, we just pay for the additional license without having to buy a completely different suite of applications.”
