Pros: Ease of installation and usage, Reporting, alerts, etc.

Cons: I 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.

Overall: My 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.

Pros: Easy 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

Cons: The interface is sluggish

can cause some network interference if not tuned properly

cost

Overall: I 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.

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

Pros: This 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.

Cons: The 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.

Overall: Know exactly what is happening in your network so you can detect problems and intrusion attempts before they get bad.

Pros: Netwrix 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.

Cons: Netwrix 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.

Overall: We have been quite happy with Netwrix and staff are starting to rely on it for detailed auditing.

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

Pros: Netwrix 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!

Cons: Netwrix 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.

Overall: We are able to easily spend our time on innovation as opposed to "fire-fighting."

A lot of features at a good price.

Pros: Netwrix 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.

Cons: It 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.

Overall: It has been used to show my company does take securing sensitive information seriously.

Pros: The 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.

Cons: It 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.

Overall: It 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.

Invaluable solution for our Microsoft Active Directory auditing requirements.

Pros: Netwrix 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.

Cons: Would 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.

Overall: Ease of addressing our Microsoft audit/compliance activities.

Pros: The 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.

Cons: Some 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.

Overall: Easier domain management, real time security alerts, it is a wonderful piece of software.

Pros: The 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.

Cons: It 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.

Pros: Netwrix 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.

Cons: The 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.

Overall: The software covered most of the system that we were required to audit.

Pros: Real 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

Cons: There 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

Overall: Like I said real time change alert is the best part of using this product

Pros: It 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.

Cons: Reporting filters can be a little confusing to use at times, and customization options are limited, requiring editing config files rather than within the GUI.

Overall: It performs a multitude of different Auditing tasks for us, making PCI and SOX compliance much simpler.

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

Cons: The activity summary reports that it completed with errors, yet neither we nor tech support has ever been able to identify the problem. Since there are no events missing, we have just let it go.

Overall: If we start to experience a problem that goes back to AD or Group Policy, we can easily determine what changed and remediate it.

Pros: Easy to find the information we need using the search feature. Real-time alerting. Ability to report on any event from the Windows event log.

Cons: Inability 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.

Overall: Easy 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.)

Pros: I 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.

Overall: Audit compliance.

Pros: Ease 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.

Pros: The prebuilt reports for so many areas of compliance. The option to install a client rather than RDPing to the server is nice.

Cons: The 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.

Cons: If 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.

Overall: Being able to discover issues with users that may not be reported to me. Compliance reporting is now a simple task!

Cons: The 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.

Overall: We 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.

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.

Cons: Whilst 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.

Overall: Netwrix 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.

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

Pros: Easy 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.

Cons: Still learning some settings and trying to find the time to dedicate to learn all of the information that is available to me.

Pros: It was very easy to set up and the instructions are most helpful. You can audit virtually everything in your environment, tracking changes along the way. The BEST way to CYA in case of an audit and prevent unauthorized access to your environment.

Cons: May seem a little expensive for some - at first. Once you have it deployed and see all the information it is tracking you'll wonder why you waited so long.

Overall: Have been using the software for almost a year now and have been very pleased.

I have found the most reliable feature of the software is "No data is available "

Pros: When the software works as advertised the information collection and reporting is far easier than attempting to extract the date from convoluted Microsoft logs using problematic scripts. The advertised data collection is extensive, and covers the most critical areas needed by a small business IT department with a limited staff. The active directory reporting is incredibly valuable and should be a mandatory for any business with or without a dedicated IT department.

Cons: Getting the data collection to work, and then keeping the data collection working is almost nothing short of an exercise in futility. The purpose of the software is to collect and report data, and yet Netwrix does not seem to hold back on making the process seem like a customer problem by providing numerous dead end resolutions. The lack of data collection troubleshooting tools does not go unnoticed.

Overall: The visibility on changes in Active Directory is incredibly valuable.

Netwrix has been a big win for our organization.

Pros: Features is #1. Auditing should be flexible and usable. Reports are comprehensive and easy to use. RBAC plays a role with transparency.

Cons: Real time alerting is missing. Give people options to use agents. The upgrade made functional changes without being clear on the differences. All small things, but I'd ensure a change log exists and reviewable online. Maybe an RSS feed or blog?

Overall: Auditing our environment from a compliance and troubleshooting perspective is a real value add.

Pros: The level of compliance documents, The state-in-time documents and the amount of historical documents without a major drain of system resources. The daily email reports I could go on and on,

Cons: The user count limitations. Also if there was a way to report a list of devices and not just the activity on them that would be helpful.

A great interface and set of features that allows small businesses Enterprise level insights.

Pros: An easy to understand, modern looking interface and sweet looking reports on a budget. Pretty easy to understand, and a lot of high level features. Great customer support and configuration assistance. Highly recommend the Jump Start package.

Cons: Well, it doesn't have "In the file" levels of changes that other (much) more expensive programs have. It can be difficult to whittle down the "noise" in Active Directory and other false positives, though thats an issue with all logging. A few of the settings are using confusing terms, but once trained it is understandable.

Overall: Insights into things we had never had before, and several advanced security items that saved us from spending more momney on a second product.

Pros: The automation is great. We love the videos of admin. The examiners love the reports and the history as well.

Cons: A little pricey to add seats and have to do it in groups or sets of end user client licenses. Will budget more next year.

Overall: Compliance mostly, but also managing engineers and having some insight on what is happening on the administration of the network that I am not directly involved with.

Pros: Pretty straight forward to get on and use. I have several less technical individuals successfully on it.

Cons: Requires client install. Would be much easier for many of the auditors to use a web interface instead.

Overall: We are able to get a far greater understanding of what id happening in our Active Directory environment. Makes us and the auditors much happier.

Decent information for the price.

Pros: Decent information for the price. Works for our audits and auditors to stay in compliance. Like the auto generated reports where I don't have to search for the information.

Cons: Hard to get some information out. Support isn't extremely helpful, only points you to some online documents that I was able to find myself before calling.

Overall: Audit compliance.

Always gives us the info we need when we need it.

Pros: There is a large list of built-in reports that will give us lots of information we need in a short amount of time. The auditors love the information we can get for them in a moments notice.

Cons: It would be nice to have a report writer that can be used to create custom reports tailored to our specific needs.

Overall: The biggest benefit is piece of mind. Between knowing that changes made to our infrastructure have been recorded and having the ability to restore in-necessary changes when we need, that makes it easier to sleep at night.

Pros: It is very easy to use. Very intuitive user interface. I have used other products before and they are just not as easy to use.

Cons: Can't think of anything now. Perhaps the setup needed a bit more attention than I would have liked, but overall it wasn't bad. Certainly better than most!
