Key Features

⇒  Quest Change Auditor Key Features 

  •  Security threat monitoring  - Detect attack attempts, lateral movement through your network, and post-attack damage done to your critical workloads like Exchange and file systems.
  •  Complete coverage  - Detect indicators of compromise (IOCs) across AD and Azure AD to catch attacks before they start, and audit suspicious user activity across file servers, Office 365 and Exchange to monitor adversaries already in the network.
  •  Threat timelines  - View, highlight and filter change events and discover their relation to other security events in chronological order across your Microsoft environment for better forensic analysis and security incident response.
  •  Related searches  - Provide instant, one-click access to all information on the change you're viewing and all related events, such as what other changes came from specific users and workstations, eliminating guesswork and unknown security concerns.
  •  Superior auditing engine  - Remove auditing limitations and capture change information without the need for system-provided audit logs, eliminating blind spots, and resulting in increased visibility of suspicious user activity.
  •  Secure AD attack paths  - Identify Tier Zero assets and the attack paths to them using BloodHound Enterprise and monitor and secure those attack paths to avoid exploits with Change Auditor.
  •  SIEM integration  - Enrich SIEM solutions including Sentinel, Splunk, ArcSight, QRadar or any platform supporting Syslog by integrating Change Auditor’s detailed activity logs.
