“Netwrix Auditor (AD, File, Windows Server, Logon Activity Auditing)”

OverallMy Company has been using Netwrix since 2013, and it has been great for us. We love the reports that it generates around our Active Directory, Exchange, Windows Servers etc., including the alerts that we subscribe to for delivery. We've also used the Audit reports for our Auditing request, which we can produce in minutes with Netwrix, which used to take us days to put together. We've also used as a training tool to teach helpdesk level personnel, as it helped us capture errors that were done in Active Directory (and reverted back with the nifty Rollback feature), and that allowed us to customize training for an new employees while working in Active Directory. Wading through event viewer events is no fun and very tedious, enter Netwrix that makes much more efficient, as you can build reports on a specific object and/or date range. I can't tell you how many times we've used it to trace a lockout of a user and where exactly the user was being locked out from - incredibly helpful, as this occurs with regularity. Netwrix has been absolutely brilliant for us, it's auditing, alerting and reporting capabilities has been and continues to be of great use for my Company. I must also give kudos to the Netwrix helpdesk, as there are very knowledgeable and have assisted successfully on numerous occasions. Highly recommend Netwrix for any company that's looking to audit their internal systems, with great reporting and alerting for all your critical and non-critical systems.
ProsEase of installation and usage, Reporting, alerts, etc.
ConsI noticed that the new version of Netwrix tends to eat up a lot more hardrive disk space, but this is due to fine tuning Audit. Without proper tuning, it will easily eat up 100GB - which is what I experienced.

“If you are held to a number of regulatory governances, Netwrix Auditor is for you”

OverallIf ever anyone is requiring a software that will audit their systems, I immediately recommend Netwrix because of the community presence (I have dealt with them primarily on the Spiceworks forums), and their amazing canned reports.
ProsThe amount of data you can collect about security events, group changes, object moves and deletions, system and file access (and much more) is astounding, especially considering the price. If I need to track something new that I wasn't thinking of when I bought this software, I only need to dig a little and there's something there already for me to utilize. The variety of things we can monitor from a system level is fantastic too. Windows domains, file servers, Office 365, VMWare, SharePoint, SQL and more...each type of audit task yields the same types of reports as the other. Easy color coding for quick visual assessment. Setting up is a cinch. The documentation has just about everything you'll need to get running, and the knowledgebase handles all the extra gotchas that you may run into if you have a temperamental environment :) Probably one of my favorite things about Netwrix Auditor: no-nonsense licensing.
ConsI think that the UI change from the prior major version to the new was the most jarring. I suspect it wouldn't have been as difficult to understand had I started with the newest UI.

“Great tool for network visibility”

OverallI find visibility to be one of the greatest tools as a network manager. Netwrix gives me the ability to monitor file actions as well as account actions that may tip me off to a security breach on the network. Or, if an employee wants to know the exact reason a file went missing I am able to query Netwrix and provide an exact answer, even a screen capture of the event in progress if I wanted. With customizable notifications I am able to get on the spot information when specific events occur, like somebody attempting to log into a Domain Administrator's account without authorization. Though a little expensive, it is better to have the security Netwrix auditor provides than to allow a network breach go unnoticed until it is too late.
ProsEasy to setup monitor AD, Logs, Events, etc customizable notifications visibility into files, Group Policy, Active Directory, Office 365, Azure, etc advanced features that help track down file actions, like screen captures or recordings of the actual event
ConsThe interface is sluggish can cause some network interference if not tuned properly cost

“A good product for the money”

OverallWe have been quite happy with Netwrix and staff are starting to rely on it for detailed auditing.
ProsNetwrix Auditor is a good product that audits all of the items we need to audit. It will audit file servers, database server, Active Directory Servers, SharePoint servers and a whole lot more. We use it for all of these items and the price did not go up because we added more machine types.
ConsNetwrix can be a bit finicky at times. We have has it stop auditing a server because the configuration on the server was changed. It took a bit of work with support for them to realize that it shouldn't have stopped due to the configuration change and once they figured that out, they fixed the problem. Once we got the auditing to start, it picked up all of the items it missed while it wasn't auditing, so we lost nothing.

“Great software that reads your event logs and makes it easy to read, break down and report on.”

OverallKnow exactly what is happening in your network so you can detect problems and intrusion attempts before they get bad.
ProsThis software takes your computer and server event logs and breaks them down into reports that you can easy view and understand exactly what is going on with your environment. You can also record what anyone does on your servers as a video. All reports can have real time notifications of events you select like multiple failed logins etc. It is also an amazing price for all that you get.
ConsThe only thing i have had is that the new version doesn't support Windows Server 2003-2008 so what i did was spun up 2 VM's for this software and ran an older version on one VM and the newest version on an other so I can have the old version monitor the 2003-2008 servers and the newest version monitor 2008 R2 to 2016.

“Netwrix has helped revolutionize our processes and simplify environmental monitoring and management.”

OverallWe are able to easily spend our time on innovation as opposed to "fire-fighting."
ProsNetwrix makes the process of auditing changes within our Active Directory environment very simple. We no longer have to spend additional time chasing down problems and what caused them. We can quickly evaluate what has recently changed, who changed it and then evaluate the best resolution without wasting time. This allows us to focus on the most important aspects of our jobs!
ConsNetwrix does not have a lot of features that I do not find amazing. The only item that I can find that comes close to being a "con" involves the way that data is processed. I would love to find a method of auditing active directory and servers that do not involve granting Domain Admin rights to an account used for the product. It is understandable, though.

“A must have for any sys admin”

OverallI love this application as it save me a lot of time by having one place to find out what, who, when and where things are going on. Can schedule reports you need to provide to upper management, Saved me hours and hours of time finding out system health of systems and AD
ProsFinding the who, what, when and where in a nice neat format. Searchable database, many options to find out what is going on, and who is doing what, where. A MUST have for any systems administrator to have the quick insight into auditing changes on the network and AD.
ConsNot so friendly out of the box, and I have to use the preset reporting, gathers everything so logs are 4GB, recommended size.

“Great Overview of your Systems”

OverallI have been able to provide real-time reporting for AD changes and several other administrative functions that we did not have the ability to before which has allowed the institution to focus on our core products and information flow.
ProsWe are a smaller financial institution with limited staff and the automated reporting has been a great time saver for me to review various selected events. There are more than enough predefined reports to meet many of our oversight needs
ConsI do have some issues with trying to understand the licensing and when we had to had other modules. Perhaps someone coming from an IT administration or CIO background would understand it better.

“A lot of features at a good price.”

OverallIt has been used to show my company does take securing sensitive information seriously.
ProsNetwrix Auditor audits a lot of different products such as SQL Server, Windows Servers, Active Directory and NetApp file servers. It is very consistent in its runs and produces reports and alerts that our US government clients fully accept. It has helped my company receive numerous accreditation for performing auditing properly.
ConsIt can be difficult to configure and sometimes fails during a heavy load. Although it may fail every now and then, it will go back and gather the information it missed in the last run and get backup to date on the audits.

“A auditing solution with huge value to the organization!”

OverallIt makes AD auditing easier for our Information Security Officer, while providing real-time reports for our IT department. The program saves a lot of time that had been spent doing things manually.
ProsThe daily reporting is great at providing a snapshot of changes the environment for Information Security Officer. In our IT department we rely on the real-time alerts daily for user lockouts and other AD related changes to inform us of changes made so we can act accordingly.
ConsIt takes some time to get a handle on the on-demand reporting, but Netwrix provides a huge list of canned reports so you rarely have to create a customized report from scratch.

“Invaluable solution for our Microsoft Active Directory auditing requirements.”

OverallEase of addressing our Microsoft audit/compliance activities.
ProsNetwrix provides a thorough, easy to use interface to address supporting documentation for almost all of our Microsoft audit requirements. We have been able to easily produce the documentation and evidence for all requests from our audit team with ease. Something that used to take a considerable amount of time to compile.
ConsWould prefer that the client be web based, as opposed to the Windows client that is used today. Additional detail in error reports to help identify exactly what is not working would be extremely helpful as well. We occasionally have to do quite a bit of exploration to determine exactly what component is generating the error.

“Use this software to monitor, alert, and create reports for Government IT Audits”

OverallEasier domain management, real time security alerts, it is a wonderful piece of software.
ProsThe fact that Netwrix always includes new and better features all of the time. Great price for the software and once it is in place and working it is very stable and solid. The new 9.0 version really allows for so much more than the old versions.
ConsSome of the plugins are hard to use. I have a hard time figuring out what is causing errors sometimes when it runs its nightly scans of my systems. But customer support is always very good in helping solve the issues.

“The additional set of eyes you need.”

ProsNetwrix Auditor was easy to deploy and you can very quickly gain deep insights into what is occurring in your environment. A huge positive is that a single application can provide data for so many different environments.
ConsNot a knock against the software itself, but in some cases, requirements for certain audit features could be documented a bit better or more centrally. Perhaps this has been improved upon since my initial deployment 5+ years ago.

“It has been refreshing to know that strange activity is going to notify me.”

ProsThe alerting is incredibly valuable. Changes taking place to multiple files will generate an alert long before a human eye could notice what was happening. This is true of administrative logins and failed logins as well. The ability to audit changes in permissions so that they can be "seen" has been very helpful as well.
ConsIt can be a bit too quick to alert but this is configurable. The initial configuration will set the tone for the application and goes a long way toward the initial implementation and usage so plan your install and determine what you want it to do for you before you actually install it.

“Netwrix Auditor is a fairly easy software package to use. It also converse a lot of system types.”

OverallThe software covered most of the system that we were required to audit.
ProsNetwrix Auditor can be setup to audit most all of the systems that a company is running. It also allows, for one price to audit most of the systems that need to be audited. In addition you can audit systems that are not part of Netwrix by using the Integration API.
ConsThe primary con with Netwrix is that the documentation is not complete. It does show how to configure a basic system but then stops there. It should also show how to configure more complex configurations. This then requires you to submit a ticket which might take a bit to get a proper answer.

“Netwrix Auditor for Dummies”

OverallWe got this product to assist with our NIST 800-171 compliance with our aerospace customers. The logs and information it provides are invaluable.
ProsIt's very easy to configure most of what you'll want to log directly out of the box. The parts that are a little more confusing are easily done with talking to support. This is overall a great product and one that I've needed for years.
ConsWhen you don't work with the setups on a regular basis it's sometimes time consuming to go back and make changes or add/delete things. Since it basically runs itself I haven't touched the setup in months.

OverallLike I said real time change alert is the best part of using this product
ProsReal time notification of any changes in AD and successful and unsuccessful logins to machines, which tells administrators of unauthorized login tries and legitimate user problems even before users approach administrator
ConsThere has to be exception reporting options which lets administrator know as some thing is not right for example I particular user is not supposed to be logging into a particular server and if such action happens then administrator should be alarmed - such relationship database should be there

“An Auditor's best friend.”

OverallIt performs a multitude of different Auditing tasks for us, making PCI and SOX compliance much simpler.
ProsIt just works. Set it up once, and the daily/weekly jobs run without any further effort. We have our reports sent to our ticketing system, making the daily review a breeze.
ConsReporting filters can be a little confusing to use at times, and customization options are limited, requiring editing config files rather than within the GUI.

ProsThe version 9 client is awesome. It provides a much easier way to drill into reports and events than ever before.

“This software is very intuitive to use and a great value.”

OverallEasy to use interface, daily/weekly reporting on important Active Directory events, Real-time alerting, real-time forensics with the intelligent search feature. Ability to scale the product to additional areas as needed (Exchange, SQL, etc.)
ProsEasy to find the information we need using the search feature. Real-time alerting. Ability to report on any event from the Windows event log.
ConsInability to format the reports (choosing data fields or placement of the fields). Inconsistent reporting formats depending on the method selected. Example: running a report within the reporting interface vs. Inactive account report. When running a report and then choosing to subscribe, must reconfigure the subscription to match the report that was already run.

OverallUser account reporting and privileged access reporting.
ProsThe change reporting is the most important component that we use. We're able to receive real time alerts as changes are made or when priviledged accounts are used.
ConsSetup can be complicated. It would be great it could report on device and Linux access as well. As is it works best with Microsoft AD.

“Great for audit and exams.”

OverallAudit compliance.
ProsI like the daily reports that Netwrix sends to the Officers on the network functions. Federal and state guidelines require someone keeps track of the network admins changes to the network. Netwrix Auditor emails a morning report every work day describing the changes made to Active Directory on all our Domain Controllers.

“Easy to implement and quickly gain value from reporting”

OverallVarious default reports are vary useful... i.e. NIST, PCI, etc. reporting
ProsQuick and easy deployment. Most features do not require an agent. Video monitoring of server sessions is a really cool features that we actually use.
ConsBecause there is to no support for Cisco products, we are forced to look into alternatives for a fully capable SIEM.

“Netwrix Review”

Overallgood, but very difficult to do the upgrade.
ProsThat I can monitor all of my servers and get automated reports
ConsOur current Sales Rep. Our first sales rep was very helpful and didn't lie about what we would be getting. Our current Sales rp has been extremely rude, and not helpful at all.

“Product has consistently worked and is very reliable”

OverallSaved a lot of time with end users.
ProsThe product has always worked for us and is extremely easy to manage. The cost was definitely right for the product.
ConsOnly problem is that I haven't explored all the options that Netwrix has to offer. The have a wide range of products and I've just scratched the surface.

“While it may lack features a few people will claim are needed, it offers what most people need.”

ProsThe prebuilt reports for so many areas of compliance. The option to install a client rather than RDPing to the server is nice.
ConsThe arduous task of creating an alert via the server console. And on this console (and I know this is not technically a SEIM), it would be nice if there were already pre-built alerts that we could simply enable for the most common security threats. The client interface is great for showing you what you are looking for if you wanted to print a PDF. I don't want a PDF view in the interface though. I want to see data returned in rows that I can filter live, sort columns, drill down on data, pivot on data, etc... Again, these features encroach on SEIM territory, but for what this product is, it kinda should have it. I am open to discussing further if you need more clarification.

OverallBenefits of saving time with the password reminder. It was so good that we recommended it to a giant healthcare industry company.
ProsAlways works. Extremely easy to use! You set it and forget it for what we are using it for. When I have to go back to it I actually remember where things are which shows that it has great design.

“Very nice product that helps with finding activity on your network”

Overallinsight into the things that change on our network that you do not know about
ProsEase of use is one, The functionality that it has in it is far beyond what we could have written. It covers a lot of ground on your network. The ease of finding what changed within a file server for me is key.
ConsLike any software, how it is licensed. Licensed by how many active AD objects you have, well we have some active objects that do not get logged into or touched but they count against us.

“Great Auditing Tool for SysAdmins”

OverallGreat, I use it in my daily auditing for reports to find trends and failed activity in my environment
ProsFinding the Who, what, when and where. Built-in reports, and ability to install local client
ConsDoesn't go as far as to show you the what is causing a logout or failed login.

“Wonderful reporting and very easy to use!”

OverallWe have had the ability to gain further insight into various operations via automated reporting, canned reports as needed, and customized reports for our environment. This has allowed us to operate more efficiently from an administrative standpoint.
ProsThe reporting that is provided both OOB and available for building are quite robust. The GUI is very easy to navigate and quite intuitive. The ability to grant access to other users for their own reporting is extremely helpful as well!
ConsThe only con I have is that sometimes technical support can be a bit delayed in getting back to us for issues, but it is only slightly so not a huge con by any means.

“This is an important tool, especially in a large environment with only 1 IT Staff or even a team!”

OverallBeing able to discover issues with users that may not be reported to me. Compliance reporting is now a simple task!
ProsVisibility, notifications/alerts, reports and bringing all of the data down to earth in a nice format.
ConsIf there is a problem, it sometimes can be difficult to solve. Redundant reports/categories are a bit confusing but not a deal breaker. Would be nice to know specifically what/where data a given report is pulling from to isolate what you may need.

“Netwrix has allowed us to keep an eye on our environment.”

ProsThe Netwrix auditor suite has many tools that come with the solution out of the box. This allows us to deploy auditing in our environment, as needed.
ConsThere are a couple of the new auditing tools in Netwrix that require a separate license. These tools should be included in the solution.

“Netwrix Suite”

OverallAfter getting the system up and running it has been a great tool for being proactive when monitoring our environment. The automated reports work great.
ProsAutomation!! Set it and forget it. Once you set up the items you want to monitor, you have the ability to shift your focus to other important items and then be alerted when the criteria matches your rules.
ConsA little complicated to get things working at first.

“Great product, easy to use & helps with GDPR compliance”

OverallNetwrix saves me time not having to go through continuous logs. I can just run reports on demand and review the scheduled reports. It also ensures helps to manage permissions and AD accounts. Netwrix saves me quite a bit of time on a weekly basis.
ProsConsolidates logs, easy to access reports on AD/file server changes. You are also able to set up alerts for account lockouts, failed logins and more. Netwrix can also help detect ransomware by reporting on bulk file changes (thankfully this isn't an issue for us). The application is easy to set up and navigate.
ConsWhilst the modular approach is great for price/budgeting, it's a shame you can't trial the different modules for 30/60/90 days before making a decision on which modules to implement.

“We purchased Netwrix after looking at many other options for auditing as required by clients.”

ProsEasy to use and setup, support is great and very responsive. Cost was a huge factor but I do not feel that we lost any capability by choosing Netwrix over other solutions. Having Netwrix reports and information has helped us greatly with client audits. Takes away some of the concern about activity in our systems as I'm alerted immediately or daily.
ConsStill learning some settings and trying to find the time to dedicate to learn all of the information that is available to me.
