NetWrix Group Policy Change Reporter is a tool that audits the changes made to Group Policy and delivers detailed information on a daily basis, with who changed what data and previous and current values.
Features: Group Policy change control and auditing is critical for all organizations relying on Group Policy infrastructure. Relatively small changes to security policies, desktop configurations, software deployment and other settings can severely impact enterprise security, compliance, and performance. This process is made very simple and affordable for companies of all sizes by this application. By enabling convenient reporting of Group Policy to document and archive all policy changes helps in this process. Tools that manage these group policies may not have audit as a built in function. You just can`t track who, what and when data for critical modifications. On the other hand auditing changes made to security policies, desktop configurations, software deployment and other settings can take a lot of time and thus not get done often enough. The process is not really very secure and is error prone.
With this application group policy auditing and change reporting becomes very convenient and easy to implement. For the purposes of audit trail the program generates a report that lists who made a change and the previous as well as the current setting. You can decide to get the setting details too. The details that can be collected include changes in software restriction policy, restricted groups, firewall settings, restricted groups and other areas. Overall it can provide audit and report on all day-to-day Group Policy management tasks, streamline creation of compliance reports for your SOX, GLBA and HIPAA auditors, provide bird`s eye view of all Group Policy management processes to IT managers.
Overall: Manages a critical function in a business setting. It does this quite simply and easily.
